I have been taking a break from sewing for a little while because of the reasons I mentioned before. This hiatus will last though December and possibly halfway into January but then I’m back with a vengeance! I will be a busy bee as I have nothing to wear after so much weight loss (I didn’t really have much before either!) I will be working on an entire wardrobe and I am REALLY looking forward to it. Mind you, I will also be buying clothes because I’m just too slow and disorganized to make everything and not have to go naked!
Today it hit me that if I want to do this then I better start coming up with some ideas and put together a plan. I did this for the PR wardrobe contest but I didn’t really give that one much thought. I’m gonna be much pickier this time and the pieces I choose will probably be very different. There will be a few fitted pieces since I will be able to pull it up without looking like a lumpy sausage and there will probably be a dress or two. I realize this cannot be done in a matter for weeks and that it will take time and effort but I am REALLY looking forward to it. In the meantime I am reading up a storm! I’m devouring my couture books and learning as much as I can about finishes and other details. I’m also reading (more) about fitting.
Just off the top of my head, the following are pieces I will probably be making at some point in the next few months.
You have fantastic taste! I especially love the coat and when I am a bit more advanced sewing wise I would love to make one just like it. Is La Mia Boutique a sewing mag?
The La Mia coat? Just go ahead and make it to wear as a coat dress. Add an inside belt and some hooks and eyes, and you’re ready to go! Good luck.
