June Sewing Plans

This month I’m planning to make:

A maxi length Anna. I’ve got all my pieces cut out and the darts and pleats pinned ready to be sewn. Hopefully I’ll get a chance over the weekend.

A navy Deer and Doe Anemone skirt. I think I’m going to cut the shorter version but I may leave out the peplum (or fins as I’ve described them to other people) and add some gold buttons for a nautical feel.

I’m going to sta20140606-105948-39588960.jpgrt work on a Megan dress from Tilly and the Buttons’ fabulous book, Love at First Stitch. I may not finish in June as I’m slow and I seem to always have to make up a couple of trial versions ironing out fitting kinks. Though from the looks of the finished measurements on Megan I should be able to cut a straight size 4 but I doubt it’ll be that simple. I was planning on making a wearable toile first (copying Tilly’s red and navy colour blocked version as I have leftover fabric of both colours) and then making it in this gorgeous mustard floral cotton lawn but I’m not sure the fabric is right for the dress. You are supposed to use something a bit heavier and I really want to use this fabric for exactly the right thing because I love it. I would love to turn it into a Sew Over It 1940s Tea Dress but it says it’s an advanced pattern so I don’t think I’m ready for that.

I’d also like to try and make a Grainline Scout t’shirt but I’m not sure I’ll get round to that as I’m being a bit ambitious already.
