Here are my top 3 things to make:
Raglan sleeve sweatshirtas blogged previously) and also this monochrome geometric print french terry. I have never sewn with french terry and was intrigued to try it, as well as loving the print.
I got the Simplicity 1317 pattern on sale at just over £4, which is like the ubiquitous Grainline Linden sweatshirt but, y'know, cheaper. I don't sew with modern Big 4 very often so I will be keeping my eye on the sizing as I want a fitted look and they tend to have a lot of ease. I've ordered some samples of ribbing as I think it would look good with a white or black rib at neck and cuffs. It would probably look good with black sleeves (like the bottom left view) too.
Denim skirt or pinafore
I bought this pattern from the awesome DestinedRendezvous Etsy shop - they have a brilliant range of patterns and shipping is reasonable, perhaps because it's from Canada and not the U.S. as I find most U.S. Etsy sellers have crazy shipping prices these days. Also, I was buying 2 patterns and she combined shipping costs when I asked. Lauren Lladybird has recently made a 1970s denim skirt with big pockets (but more A-Line shape) using a pattern bought from the same shop.
TightsAlice tights pattern (which she kindly sent me) that I would really like to try.
I find that my winter wardrobe can look a bit lacking in colour, and coloured or patterned tights would be a great way to inject some brightness into my life. As a tall lady, I also find tights that are too short are incredibly annoying so to be able to make my own would be amazing.
I bought the above mustard rib fabric from Minerva Crafts for £3.99/m because it was one of the fabrics Marilla had successfully used for tights, so I felt I was on safe ground with it. I think the colour will look perfect with reds, denim and tan - all colours I want to incorporate into my wardrobe a bit more.
