Now, I had already done those steps last year. So I’m picking up the thread for this year now with identifying holes, those necessary items, in your closet. I agree with Kristin, that it was a bit scary seeing my closet so empty, but knowing that I was ending up with a much more custom, well-fitting wardrobe was a worthy goal to keep in mind. Here is my list of holes that I've identified so far:
Denim Skirt, summer and winter
Faux denim shirt
Blouses in my green and purple colors
More short sleeve knit shirts
I quickly realized that I’m not going to have time to sew all these clothes, so I picked a couple I already had fabrics and patterns for, and decided to buy the rest. Here is the updated list with correlated patterns:
Spring Coat – Lady Grey by Colette Patterns
Fall Coat – A Little Something Jacket by CNT Patterns
Denim Skirt – draft my own pattern inspired by Cute Skirts by Favorite Things
The denim skirt will be interesting to try. I really like the Cute Skirts pattern, but it’s made for thinner, lighter fabrics and an elasticized waist. I’ll be using denim with a zippered waistband, and that greatly alters the construction.
Any clothes sewing plans for the year?
