What to Sew Next - A New Blogging RoutineFor a while now I have wanted to change my blogging routine. I would really like to keep you guys more in the loop of what I am planning to sew and how my sewing (and knitting) projects are progressing. I usually have a lot to say about each sewing project (problems, doubts, fitting issues, etc) but every time I write a 'finished' post I have to scrap a lot of the thoughts I have (had) about the project because there's just too much text and I'm afraid I will scare you guys away ;)
Yesterday I finished another sewing project (a two piece dress in mustard yellow - I love it!) so I'm at the point of planning my next project - the perfect time to finally start that new blogging routine.
Right now I am torn between two options:
The first option is to make a maxi skirt with this lovely fabric. However, it is a lightweight slippery ( 'liquid') fabric and I don't have the proper needles. I have also purchased a walking foot. So it would mean no sewing until the things I've ordered arrive in the mail.
The second option is to make a dress out of this gorgeous dark eggplant/purple lightweight woolen fabric. I am still looking for a job and I have realized that I hardly have any clothes that are suitable for a job interview. So I really need to start sewing some. But even thinking of sewing with such a warm fabric right now makes me sweat.. Also, I am completely indecisive on what pattern to use for the fabric.. will it be:
Simplicity 3475 - The dress version with long sleeves (very cute but unsuitable for a potential job (interview))
Retro Butterick 5281 (very suitable for a job interview / work but I have been a bit disappointed at the sewn examples I've seen)
Simplicity 3962 (I really like this pattern and it would be suitable for work but I have to size it down a whopping 6 inches which means making muslins and all together just takes a lot of time..)
Honestly, I'm really much more in the mood for a simple project and something that I can wear right now.. but I do need a 'proper' dress..
Ugh, me and my indecisiveness! What do you guys think?
