Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!

So many projects, so little time

on August 30, 2016

It was my birthday last week so I asked for money to enable me to go fabric shopping without the guilt. 

So I decided to sit down and write a list of patterns I really wanted to sew and buy the fabric plus notions so I am good to go when I have the time.

So these are on my to make list now:


Threadcount classic pleated trousers

Floral cotton fabric from fabricland,  I had planned on making a toile for these but I am too impatient so might just go for it!


Simple Sew pleated culottes

Aubergine colour linen from fabricland,  thinking ahead for autumn and winter.


Houndstooth fabric for designer stitch Jenny dress

Pink/purple houndstooth fabric from fabricland,  to make the Jenny dress I won during IPM from Designer Stitch.  Think I will make the classic version in this for work.


Tilly and the buttons marigold jumpsuit

I have plans to make this jumpsuit ready for christmas party time.  I wanted to make a black version (and I only own two black clothing items,  both jackets!!) and then found this fab sparkly fabric.


It means I need to line it so have bought a lovely soft viscous cotton to make underneath.  Not sure how to join the two up yet but have 4 months to figure it out.


Sew over it silk cami x 2

The sew over it silk cami kit was one of my birthday presents from hubby. The kit had the pattern and the floral peachskin fabric to the right in the photo.  I bought some cheap polyester silky fabric to make a wearable toile. Lucky I did as it was too tight across the bust ( which never happens to me as only an A cup).  I bought the pink bird fabric to try again before I cut into the decent fabric.


Collette ginger skirt

I got this tula pink bumble bee fabric from Beatles a few months ago as end of roll. I got the ginger skirt pattern from a pattern exchange group on Facebook and thought it would be a great design to show off the fabric.


Simple Sew pussybow blouse

This make was inspired by another blogger on WordPress who made culottes with a pussybow top. Again,  I am planning ahead to autumn /winter and adding another black item to my wardrobe.


Tilly and the buttons Agnes top

I received the Agnes pattern during the swap in IPM.  I made a stripy version in cheap jersey as a wearable toile but had this in the stash. I am planning to make the long sleeve version.


Shorts and cami from gbsb latest book

This is the failed silk cami that only fits without a bra so has been relegated to nightwear.  I found the short pattern in my latest gbsb book and will add lace trim, the whole set will only cost me £3.50!!

That should keep me busy for a while and out of fabricland!!

    Some good patterns in there! I’m also planning on making some of the sew simple culottes – for summer. A planning post is for certain in my very near future!

    Some fab patterns and fabrics (now I neeeed to go to fabricland!!) look forward to seeing the end results. I wish I was that organised rather than winging it as I go along.
