Ok guys, it seems like most of you want to sew something for yourselves.
To be honest, my first thought was no way. I don't sew for me. I'm not sure why.
But, why not?
So, I've browsed around for patterns that I would love to make for myself, and I hope you'll like them too! After all, I don't want to make something I'm not going to wear.
You'll find a poll on the top right sidebar (if you don't see it quite yet, you are reading this just as I've posted and it will be there momentarily).
Please only vote if you think you will participate in the sew-a-long.
Zip Front Hoodie (or it can be made without the hood) from Jalie. This hoodie comes in 27 sizes, from a child's size 2 all the way up to a women's 22! Jalie patterns are a bit pricey, but for this range of sizes I think really worth it. Hoodie jackets like this are a staple in my wardrobe so I would love to do this one.
Yoga Pants (also shorts) pattern also by Jalie. This yoga pants pattern looks amazing to me. They have seams down the back of the leg and look really quite like those overpriced yoga pants from Lululemon.
Please tell me I'm not the only mom that wears yoga pants almost everyday. I'm thinking this could be a really great pattern for me. Yoga pants, again a staple. Or, maybe I should say part of my mommy uniform. Again, 27 sizes.
This is Jalie's Women's Pullover. Again, don't let the pattern photo in that weird snakeskin print scare you. I've seen photos of several of these made and I love them. This one can be made with or without the hood as well. You guys, this one might be my personal favorite pick! Again 27 sizes so can be used for kids and for mom!
Shawl Wrap Cardigan from Dan.a? I've been meaning to make this all winter but haven't had the right fabric. I know we're heading into spring, but for those of us who live in chilly climates we will still be able to wear this for awhile. And those of us who actually get a spring, can tuck it away until next year.
What do you think? If you would prefer we could maybe make a bag of some sort and I could do these "must makes" on my own. :) I know I could really use a new bag.
Vote if you'd like to take part, and leave a comment if you like. :)
I'll leave the poll open until mid next week, and will probably schedule the sew-a-long for mid April (I know a ways away yet but it takes forever for me to receive things up here and I will need to order patterns and fabric).
I would also like to invite you guys to check out Sugar Cubes and Spice Cake. This is a new cute little sewing blog started by my sewing friend Sandra. She is hosting a girly sew-a-long coming up the end of this week. If you liked the vintage pattern I shared with you last week, I think you'll like the pattern she is sewing up! I'm hoping to sew-a-long. :)
Have a great Monday! I just heard on the radio that there is a moose walking around town. Let's hope I see it!
