The more I simplify, the more I discover what I like in clothes, what looks best on me and what works best for my life. Most of the time it is hard for me to find clothes that I like at affordable prices from companies that follow ethical manufacturing practices. So I will be sewing!
With some Christmas money I purchased fabric with some items in mind for spring/summer:
1. Chambray Pants & Linen Pants...here is the fabric and my inspiration pattern:
|Blank Slate Patterns Oceanside Pants|
|Kaufman Washed Indigo Chambray|
|Kaufman Essex Linen Blend, Putty|
I probably won't use this pattern because I don't want my pants to be quite so wide-legged. I'll do some searching for a free pattern and some pattern-hacking...and definitely making a muslin first!
2. Brown Tank Top and Blue Patterned Tank Top:
|Dark Chocolate Voile Shirting|
|Kaufman Nautique Chambray Print|
|Megan Nielsen Eucalypt Tank|
|Megan Nielsen Brair|
|Kaufman Laguna Stetch Jersey in Chocolate Brown|
|Coral and white striped knit...from the thrift store!|
I've also decided that I will be sewing more for the kids, especially Ruthie...but that will have to be another post!
What are your sewing goals for 2016?
