I’d like to sew a lot more, so I’m focusing my #makenine2021 exclusively on sewing projects. I’m starting first with a couple small projects that I’ve been meaning to make forever and which don’t require any fitting. After that, a couple basics that should hopefully be ok for a beginner-ish sewist; a couple loungewear items where wonky fit is ok; and then a couple garments that are a bit more ambitious for my current level. I wish I was the type of person who wears skirts, because there’s so many of them in the “beginner” pattern level.
Starting with the top row and moving left to right:
- This drawstring bag from Spruce Crafts, to house my reusable makeup remover pads. I’ve had the fabric cut for this project for awhile…
- A tool roll, pattern from Bookhou. Planning to do this up in a couple different black and white fabrics.
- A zippered pouch. I bought some fabric for a particular pouch I want to make eons ago in Japan. Said fabric is patterned with tiny shinkansens (Japanese high-speed trains).
- The Stellan Tee, to refresh my wardrobe’s basics. (Photo by unmatinenville)
- A couple Kila Tanks, because I never want to shop for a basic tank again.
- A Suki Robe (short View B), possibly in some home-indigo-dyed fabric that is (still) unspoken for.
- Shorts from the Vero Beach Set or Carolyn Pajamas. Haven’t decided yet which pattern to go with, just that I only want to make the bottoms. I find PJ tops with collars/pockets/buttons annoying to sleep in, even if they are super cute.
- The Wiksten Haori. Honestly I just want to sew all the jackets.
- The Amherst Shirt in some fun prints!
What’s in your Make Nine?
