Part of what the Stashbusting Sew-Along, which I joined on Facebook, encourages is setting some yearly goals. I think one of mine is to come to grips with the giant WIP bin, and be realistic about what I find there.
So, with that and my current life in mind, I present my Wardrobe Queue, to be placed back on its page, only a day late.
Wardrobe: Items that will work with at least 4 things I already have in my closet, which fill specific needs, and which fabric and pattern already exist for. A mix of quick projects and things that will take a little longer. Properly finishing seams as much as possible.
WinterThurlow pants, by Sewaholic in Hunter Green They're cut, and in a color I've had on my pants wish list. Everything is together for them. Just gotta do it to it.
Charcoal dress and jacket. I have fabric and lining, and even a relatively well-fitting pattern for a professional dress... I just need a simple jacket pattern to accompany it.
Moji pants, by Seamwork in black. For those nights when I'm teaching or have meetings.
Already have fabric. I know I will wear them. Without the drawstring but with the cuffs, I think.
Scout tee by Grainline, in red and(if I like it and if/once it fits well) in Liberty. Heck, if the first one fits well, I'll make several!
Blue Moneta knit dress(Colette), or Mesa knit dress(Seamwork). Will transition nicely to Spring, and work for some of the same situations the Moji pants will.
Pencil skirt trio in blue, red, and camel wool, all from the same vintage pattern; to be assembled assembly-line style where possible, which will require lots of hand marking.
