Seeing everyone’s #2016MakeNine posts pop up on blogs and Instagram, has me inspired to do some planning ahead myself. These are the nine items that will probably appear in my closet at some point in 2016.
- Phoebe Dress by Colette Patterns.
The sewalong for this dress has just kicked off, and I’m excited to join it. Pattern has been printed and traced, and the fabric is ready to go.
- Archer Button-Up by Grainline Studio
My main quest for this year is the perfect button up shirt. Judging from all the pictures I’ve seen of it, this one might just fit the bill!
- Cascade Duffle Coat by Grainline Studio
I need some sort of winter coat for the coming winter, and I’ve been desiring a duffle coat for a long time. I have some plaid and some purple wool in my stash for this.
- Zinnia Skirt by Colette Patterns
I really like the small darts, and think this will look lovely a wide variety of fabrics.
- League Sweater by Veronik Avery
Can’t say much about this, other than that it looks awesome! It will be hard to find other colour combinations that work for this though…
- Watson Bra & Undies by Cloth Habit
Here I’m most likely to draft my own pattern instead, but as I already own this I might as well see if I can get this one to fit.
- Scout Tee by Grainline Studio
Even if I find the perfect button-up, I don’t want to be wearing only those all year. Especially for summer, this seems a cute, simple top!
- Cascades Sweater by Michelle Wang
Not 100% sure if I will make this exact sweater, or if I will design my own cabled sweater to go over button-ups, but some type of gorgeous cabled sweater will be created at some point in 2016!
- Ginger Jeans by Closet Case Files
Although they’re last on this list, they’ve jumped to the top of my sewing queue after I ripped trough the knees of my only pair of jeans.
