Shannon's Spring Sewing Plan

It has been unseasonably warm here lately. That fact combined with the fact that I just don't like winter, has me chomping at the bit to get started on Spring Sewing. I've decided to give up on cold weather sewing and get started making some things for spring. And besides, I'm so slow, I better get started now if I want something new to wear when spring officially arrives!

So I present to you Shannon's Spring Sewing Plan, or SSSP for short.

My plan (loosely) consists of 7 items: 2 tops, 2 bottoms, 1 work dress, 1 play dress, and one jacket.



Here you can see my tentative storyboard. I have one woven top (NL6831), and one knit top (NL6648). I have one skirt (BWOF 01-2009-132) and one pair of pants (BWOF 09-2009-113). The plan is for each top to go with both bottoms. For my work dress, I'm thinking BWOF 03-2008-115, and for the play dress I'm considering S2694, the sundress version. I actually have two jackets on my storyboard. I can't decide which one I like best, so I might make both. S2443 is the cool new Cynthia Rowley pattern from Simplicity, and the "denim" jacket is BurdaStyle 02-2010-109. Both jackets need to go with all four top and bottom combos and both dresses.

As always, none of this is set in stone and any one of these pieces could change with no notice. As a matter of fact, I just ordered the new Hot Patterns Weekender Track and Field Cargo Pants and the Wong Singh Jones Kyoto Skirt so who knows?

So is anybody up for a sew-along? Feel free to borrow my plan, or better yet, come up with a custom plan that works for you. Anything goes as long as we all have fun sewing and we all have something pretty to wear come Spring!

In the meantime, smocking continues on Kitty Mittens. I'm thinking when it's all done, I'll put it into this dress:

The Princess still likes the smocked kitties and wants to wear them, and this little dress is suitable for an older girl. And we've made it before, so I know it goes together easily.

Well, I don't want this year to turn out like last year, when I blogged mostly about what I wanted to sew rather than what I actually did sew. So I better get going and sew something!

Great plan! My favorite are the Cynthia Rowley jacket and the work dress... Can't wait to see your progress...

Marsha said...

The Annika dress is nice using a smocked insert for older girls...think my daughter would like that style. Is that pattern from Maja?

Shannon said...

Marsha, yes! I should have mentioned that Annika is by Maja's Heirloom Treasures! She has lots of great patterns for older girls.

I need to revamp the wardrobe, too. I may count myself in, with a plan for some tops and skirts, a jacket or two.

Lina said...

Great plan! I made Burda dress before and would recommended it.

It's always good to have a plan!

Spring WILL be here before we know it....
