November sewing plans

Late again! No excuses really, other than I’ve been getting back in to the swing of real life after an extraordinary October. I was away from home (and my sewing machine) for 4 weeks so no sewing was completed in October at all but now I’m home I feel quite motivated to sew!

This month I want to:

  • Make some new workout leggings. I’ve gained more weight than I had anticipated whilst away (a lot of wine is to blame) so lately I’ve felt awkward and uncomfortable in all my clothes. I joined the gym again and now I want new gym clothes! I’m thinking of making one of the legging patterns I haven’t used from FehrTrade (probably the PB Jam pattern) and hopefully I’ll find some great sports fabric.
  • Finish an embroidery project. I’ve got a hoop kit from Oh Sew Bootiful that is nearly finished that will look so cute when it’s done.
  • Purge my wardrobe. I have more than enough clothes but there are plenty I don’t wear because I don’t like them anymore, my style has changed or I’m just plain too chunky for right now. Ideally a total wardrobe overhaul would be great but I think I need to take it slowly and really focus on what I want to add or take away from my current wardrobe. This also means I could refocus on my making plans to fill the gaps.
  • Catch up on some posts. I had a couple scheduled for while I was away but none of them posted!

September and October in review

In September I did finish my Ginger jeans and these are wearing in nicely. I will get round to posting about my jeans making experience… at some point… I also finished a New Look 6483 but the 4 blog posts never got scheduled or even finished for that matter. Whoops!

In October I visited San Francisco, New Zealand and Tokyo and or course I went fabric shopping in each place. I don’t plan on doing a haul post but there will be a post in the near future!
