Every year I make a #makenine list for the year. It is a list of nine sewing projects for the coming year. The last few years I have been overly ambitious and failed miserably at completing my list. I’m more of an impromptu type of sewer. When I feel inspired I will make something for myself rather than planning so far in advance.
This time around I am making a list of things that I will be able to wear on a regular basis. A capsule wardrobe basically.
So here is my Make Nine list for 2021:
1- A Swing Coat by Gertie in a grey and pink wool plaid
2- A purple plaid dress with black contrast collar and buttons in Butterick 5556
3- Some knit pussy bow tops in bright colours. Pattern is from Sew Over It.
4- Rita Blouse by Gertie in a black and white check and black and pink bats.
5- The Hepburn Top by Gertie in soft bamboo knits. Purple and red
6- The Stanwick Skirt by Gertie in Pink and grey check tweed.
7- The Princess Coat by Gertie in Leopard.
8- Purple Tweed skirt in Simplicity 8458
9- A wool cape in grey tweed in Simplicity 8473
