Wardrobe planing AKA dream on

23 Aug

I know August isn’t even over, but the last few weeks the air has been changing and it smells different. I’ve started day dreaming about  autumn clothes and colors. So I thought I’d start a little list of my daydreams so that perhaps I could plan a little (versus my helter skelter approach to sewing).

I have visions of the Luffa shawl collar jacket from Waffle patterns or the Scooter Jacket from Hot Patterns in a maroon/burgundy (like this beautiful brushed wool twill from Turo fabric) with black pleather trim. The only think that makes me hesitate is I’d really much rather have a paper copy of the pattern and not have to fuss about with the PDF.

I’m really liking the shape of the Pleated pencil skirt  from Delia Creates and am imagining it in a burnt orange, some brilliant print like this Liberty cord. or this soft looking Chambray from ditto fabrics.


Comfortable yet nice looking cotton tops – I’m thinking of Vogue V8597 which I haven’t made in years – out of some of these lovely printed organic knits or these solid jerseys from Bizzy&Boo.

As you never know what you’re going to get weather wise, I love the idea of the Biscayne Blouse in these two new prints from  MonaLuna. If its warm arms out, if not, cardigan on.

And of course as you never know what you’re going to get I’ll need to be prepared with some long sleeve blouses too like Natalie Top from Liola patterns out of one of the new MonaLuna prints or this fantastic floral.

And then there the everyday comfort need for the Bonnie top from Blueginderdoll in some of these amazing  stripe knits.

Oh me oh my – I need to win the lottery I think! I’m not sure where to even start.  Breath.

    So much of the fun is in the planning right?! Some delicious bits here, it’s spring planning where I am and there are still winter patterns to make!

      I feel the same, there are still so many summer things I want to make. But summer will be gone in a blink of an eye.

    I think it’s you’ve made some super plans, I need to try and do this rather than just making what I fancy then nothing matches.

    […] Edinburgh Fabrics has an amazing collection of Harris tweed and Moon tweed. And in the end I came away with four pieces, plus one for my BFF which I’m going to make into cute little winter shorts. So I have four new garments to add to my wardrobe planning. […]
