Some loose plans of mine, for the coming season, include:
I picked up this pattern from the 1960s, Simplicity 8096, on Etsy and I think it's just adorable. I really want to make a wrap coat. Something to hug me on a windy day. While I would love to make a coat in a wild colour, I think for my first coat I will stick to a more muted colour.
Jackets and cardigans
The light-weight jacket in this pattern is simple and I think quite versatile. I should have some fabric in my stash and already have the pattern. Hopefully this will be a quick and easy sew
I find this pattern interesting, but I'm not sure it will work. I like the waterfall front of view B. I might make it, but I might not. The pattern has been given to me though, so if I don't make it I'm OK with that.
I've had this lovely jacket below, made with ponte, pinned for some time (see here). I just adore the colour and the scalloped collar. I'm determined to try to replicate this. I have picked up McCalls 6519 to use. I really want to use a wild ponte colour, but my recent trip to Spotty turned up nothing. I might have to pay for shipping to get something nice, I'd love a burnt orange or mustard yellow.
This pattern was voted one of the best patterns over at Pattern Review in 2009. This pattern has been given to me, so really I'd be nuts not to give it some attention and I think it has potential.
I'd really love to knit a shawl for this winter. I really like the Catherine's Shawl pattern on Ravelry, but particularly in grey, like this one. Unfortunately, I am a slow knitter. I am almost finished Adele's In Three's cardigan, which I am yet to log on Ravelry, but still, I don't see this one happening this year, which is a shame because I really want one. Gosh I wish I could knit fast!
So there are some of my jacket, coat and shawl ideas for the coming season. Hopefully some of these plans will happen, but my sewing time is becomming more and more rare. I'll post shortly with my other autumn and winter sewing plans.
Have you begun sewing new items for your coming season? After the cool, wet weather today, I'm already feeling behind!
