Sewing for Autumn

It's been a long time since I wrote here but there is so much going on that I haven't had time. You get more often updates if you come to my instagram place @medeasgarderob

As usual I want to sew a Granville Shirt. I use my sleeveless Granvilles all the time, even in winter. But I want to sew one with long arms and see if I like it. Second is a long cardigan from Knipmode that I've sewn a couple of that pattern before and like it. This will be in a brown linen knit. Maybe I have to find a brown matching fabric for a skirt or I wear it with my denim pencil skirts.

My high priority project the coming months is my navy blue coat in wool crepe. The coat is Quart Coat from Pauline Alice. She makes pattern for short people so I have to adjust before I sew, but I've sewn a dress from her and it worked. So I hope this will be beautiful.

On the lower row there are things I need and I'll see if I can find time to also sew a slip, at least one bra (Marlbourogh Bra) and some panties. If I have time I also want to sew a blouse and maybe a dress from my Laurel Dress Pattern.

Finished everything

There are ten garments sewn by me and one bought jacket. I think I will use all of them a lot. Don't miss my everyday outfits in May. It's #mmmay17 and you'll find me at @medeasgarderob

Since last time...

Now it's already the end of April and Stitcher's Guild's SWAP is closing on next Sunday, the 7th May. I haven't sewn all the things I planned for but I sewn some other garments. Maybe I'll manage to finished all of them completely before Sunday.
I've started to put my garments in a sudoku board to make my outfits. Let's see how it works.

My sewing list

These are the garments I plan to sew in the near future. The dress and the black shirt is already cut and the red skirt is sewn. So maybe I'll start with these when I come home in the end of February. I really need one or two new pencil skirts in jeans fabric so these  need a high priority. And the long cardigan will be a fast project so I will cut that before the printed Granville Shirt even if I really want to wear it.
There will be a sewing marathon when I finally reach my french home in a couple of weeks.

Winter 6 PAC

These are my latest finished garments. I haven't sewn for more than a month but before christmas I finished these.
The black pencil skirt is one of my early garments for my SWAP at Stitcher's Guild's yearly swap contest and I will soon start to sew more of what I planned. The only problem is that all my fabrics are in my french home and I will not come there until the end of February.
I used these patterns:
Navy blue pencil skirt in heavy jersey; Kirsty Jupe from La Maison Victor.
Top in the same navy blue jersey: Pattern from Stof & Stil, same as the dress in this post.
Cézembre blouse in a single jersey: Anne Kerdiles Couture.
Navy blue wrap cardigan in a blue angora wool knit: Pattern from Papercut Patterns.
Gertie's Pencil Skirt from her first book.
Plantain Tee from Deer & Doe Patterns
Aldaia Dress från Pauline Alice.

Stitcher's Guild

I've missed Stitcher's Guild since the site is down. But today I found a blog post about it at Ruthie's place and then I went to Pattern Review to read more about it. You'll find the thread here.
