I think I have the stuff to do it to it this time... I am spurred onward and inspired by newest acquisitions in the stash- and some old ones. So at the moment, I have things I would like to make. It's honestly a matter of getting to them, and of making a cohesive wardrobe come of getting to them. Things I'd like to make... Stars mean I have fabric.

2 dresses:
*brown/eggplant retro print matched print?
*brown jersey knit
*brown herringbone wiggle dress

6 tops:
*purple sweater knit tunic-type thing unusual closure
some fun shirt featuring entre-deux- maybe dotted Swiss?
long/half-sleeve tshirt
embellished tee

2 bottoms:
*embroidered cotton circle skirt fill in w/color along top opening edge to feature embroidery
*charcoal/navy twill kickpleat skirt

plus one:
*wiggle dress

Financially, stash, and planning-wise I am in better shape this year.But first, finals...

December is INSANE.

Sooo I am getting back into the swing of things, and feeding my fabric addiction, and I suppose I should start thinking about Winter Break sewing goals, although I have a pretty awesome sewing goal to accomplish before then... Remember Dawn? The dress that never happened for a formal that never happened?
Well, that fabric was still destined for "greatness". Imagine this strapless neckline, knee length, with kick pleats over each leg, but maintaining the same clean silhouette- a sort-of straight but not pencil-skirt line.
You know, this will be easier to explain with pictures. Which I will take.But for now I used another line drawing to kinda make a point... I've drafted the pattern (using a straight skirted strapless dress as a starting point), cut, and assembled to the point of pleats pinned to insert.

Bought the lining and other unnecessary but truly wonderful things today- and the lining was the only thing I bought full price! I'll share those, jewelry made for the dress, and some other projects when I have my camera.
