Okay. So I'm ready to stop neglecting this blog. Really and truly. Ready. Here are a few visuals of the sewing projects that I've queued up:
I've fallen in love with these 1970s Annie Hall style high-waist, wide-leg pants. Head-over-heels in love! It's Vogue 8836. Very difficult to tell from the scan, but I'll be using this heathered blue and brown woven suiting fabric to bring these to life (view B).
The Colette "Beignet" Skirt from this amazing vintage 1970s leaf and mushroom print twill fabric that I've had in my stash for, like, 10 years (!) now...'cause it's so awesome and I've been saving it for something special. I know I'm probably the last seamstress on earth to tackle this, but better late than never!
I love the late 1950s Brigitte Bardot look of these high-waist, skinny leg knit pants. Designed by Katherine Tilton for Vogue (V8837). These have interesting seaming details that aren't even captured in the photo from the pattern envelope. To be made using a heathered brown interlock knit.
Another Colette Patterns Skirt - "Ginger." Simple A-line design that will work well for this crazy busy 1980s splatter print twill fabric!
Tie-front blouse from the October 2010 issue of Burda Style Magazine (although I downloaded the pattern from their website). I'll be using this slightly retro floral and vine print purple-hued cotton fabric !
I'm really looking forward to getting back into the sewing groove. Now, off to decide which of these projects to tackle first.....
