Just before I get into this post, I’ve got 2 things to announce!
1. The winner of the fabric giveaway was Sewing For Cat People. Hope you enjoy your prize!
2. Apparently I won Best Blogger in the Simplicity Sewing Challenge this year! Crazy stuff! I just want to say thank you to all of you reading this blog for the support and encouragement you’ve given me. I wouldn’t have done it without you!
So onto the actual blog post today…
I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone so far!
With the sun and warmth gone away for another few months, now is the time to get my head around some cold weather sewing! (I’m a little behind everyone else because I decided to take my summer holiday in October…).
Here’s my list of winter projects to complete and trends to follow
1- I need to finish the coat I started for my dad last year! I got a bit overwhelmed with the pattern and just pushed it to the side… It’s currently living in a bag under my sewing table. Just need to get the courage to get it out again!
2- I also got 3 coat patterns for myself earlier this year – the Grainline Studio Cascade Duffle, Sewaholic’s Robson trench and the Pauline Alice Quart Coat. My plans will definitely include making one of those! Now to decide what to start on first… Both the Pauline Alice and Sewaholic patterns would lend well to the current military outerwear vibes going on but I love a duffle coat too!
5- I need new cardigans! For some reason I’m never happy with ones I find in store. They’re all either too long, too short, too loose or too tight and they all look terrible! I’m thinking of getting the Jenna Cardi from Muse Patterns which looks like it’ll fit the bill! Either that one or Wembley from Seamwork maybe?
What are you planning to make this winter?
