Here the three projects/patterns that I'm most excited to get cracking with, once all this fancy-pants sewing is finished:
The first pattern I can't wait to get my hands on is the most complex of the three. Pictured above is my copy of the Watson jacket pattern from Papercut Patterns. Probably like most sewing peops when they discover Papercut patterns for the first time, I flipped out over their stunning website and incredible product packaging. If you haven't already visited them, check out this NZ-based company's site. I've got a couple of fabric options to make this in, but I think it'll be a great opportunity to use some of the incredible large buttons I possess so I'll take those firmly in to consideration before making the final fabric selection.
I'm not sure if the sun will still be shining by the time I finally get making this sun top pictured below (first featured in March in my blouse sewing pattern hoard post). I have the most amazing vintage red, white and blue fabric lined up but I want to take my time and get a good fit so I haven't rushed into making this when there are certain other garments which are currently more deserving of my fitting time!
I've worn my navy cropped trousers made from an adapted version of the Colette Patterns Clover pattern (pictured below) so often that another version or two is inevitable. By altering the waist shape of the original pattern, my version are more comfortable than pretty much any other pair of trousers I've ever owned so I'd love to have some more in different lengths and colours. I've actually had a pair in leopard print sateen cut out for some time, which I may well get round to stitching before my wedding sewing is complete. I've also been obsessing about a red pair, possible full length. This talented sewer has converted the pattern to create an altogether different style which look totally amazing. I can't wait to make my own red-hot pair! I don't currently have any secondhand red fabric with a sufficient elastane quality, so I may bend my 'no new fabric' rule for this project because I am so desperate for red trousers, as embarrassing as that is to admit!
