I recently finished my first garment in ages (I'll be posting pics soon). I've got the sewing bug again so last week I made a significant fabric purchase! Nothing like a fabric binge to get those creative juices flowing.
As always, I'm sticking to emmaonesock.com. I love the detail they include in their descriptions, they're always responsive to questions and helpful and I trust them!
Below is a roundup of the fabric that I ordered and my sewing plans.
Since I made a few floral pleated skirts last summer (this one and this one), I've had a hankering for one with horizontal stripes. Look at this delicious silk I ordered!
I will use the same pleat measurements (I can't really call it a pattern) as the floral skirts but I think I'm going to not have the top of the pleat stitched together. The inverted box pleats will open right at the waistband, rather than a few inches below, to make it look more like the inspiration pic above.
Paneled sheath dress:
here and here) so much! They're perfect for the office and I always get so many compliments. I'm going to use this cotton sateen I bought to make a version with contrast panels like the pic below.
So many more pants!
I love the floral pants that I made so much that I must have MOAR!
I'm going to make a floral jersey version using this delicious rayon.
And a tribal jersey version:
Kinda like this:
I have a road trip coming up in August, so I'm planning to basically live in these.
Something else!I also bought this fabric because I have been eyeing it since the got it in. I got the last piece!
I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to make with it. Maybe something like this?
This fabric is polyester which I usually avoid like the plague but fuck it. YOLO. Now I'm thinking I might make one of those dresses that looks like a separate skirt and blouse, with this panel fabric on the top and some cute pink tweed (never thought I would be considering cute pink tweed) on the bottom. Not sure if cute pink tweed is really my thing, though.
So basicallyI can't wait to sew up a storm! Also, some friends got married and in one week we're going to to a fairly formal dinner to celebrate (the groom will be wearing a tux). I would love to make a glamorous jumpsuit (even more surprising to me than the pink tweed! Major charachter development here on Wardrobe Dysfunction, TBH) but I'm not sure I have the time. What should I do? Do you think I would get lots of use out of something like this?
I mean, I definitely would, right?
