Do you set sewing goals each year? Last year was the first time I did and I met most of them. So, while I am a little late getting started this year, it is time to set some goals!
To help keep me accountable to my sewing goals, I thought I would participate in #2017 Make Nine, a program sponsored by Rochelle of the Lucky Louise blog. Rochelle started Make Nine, inspired by the "Best Nine" round-up on Instagram. You can read all about it by clicking on the link above. By the way, you can find and follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/pinkhollybush. So in no particular order, here are my goals for 2017!
First up is Sweet Little Kisses pattern by Judith Marquis. I have some wonderful organic knits coming from Denmark to my shop and I know that this simple pattern will be perfect for them. I also received a new serger from Santa this past Christmas and this pattern would put it to good use!
I made this Vogue Pattern (8815) for my daughter a few years ago and she loves it. The top I made for her has seen better days and she has asked for another. She has picked out the fabric and this is my current WIP.
I received the Building Block Dress Book by Liesl Gibson for my birthday and have several ideas for dresses. Liesl provides a dress pattern block and walks you step by step how to create your own design by altering the block. The instruction in this book is amazing!
Another Vogue Pattern (8805), I want to make this with long sleeves and without color blocking. I think it is the perfect dress for the Valentino wool knit I picked up in the New York City garment district a few years ago.
