Would Like To Sew

After my post around this time of year, last year of clothes I'd like to sew, I thought I'd do it again, partly to show you what sewing patterns are out there and partly as a motivational thing for me to get my arse in gear and actually use up some of that fabric I have hoarded away. (Despite the fact I actually only sewed one thing from my last would like to sew post.)

New Look 6143; I love this party dress, I think I'd make dress E (the red polka dot one) exactly as it is, with red and white polka cotton and white power mesh, except I'd probably add in sleeves as I think the tops of my arms are a bit funny looking.

Burda 7063; I really love this cute and casual blouse, it will be perfect for summer. Although the american website describes it as 'almost a little frumpy' which I dont really see how that sells it... I'm going to make the blouse in a blue ala these ones and white polka dot and maybe a red and white striped one with a lace collar. I might make up the dress too, in a pink with birds that I have stashed away. I wish the sunglasses were included too.

New Look 6051; I actually already have this pattern, it's one of those I bought ages ago and still haven't gotten around to sewing it. At least I haven't bought the fabric for it yet...

New Look 6130; I don't much care for the trousers or the pencil skirt, but I love the peplum top. I could make it in a satin for an evening type look or floral cotton for a day time look. It's worth it at the moment because New Look patterns are currently on offer for £2.95.

New Look 6125; I have already used this pattern to make my halloween costume but I was thinking that I could make it up again in a nicer fabric. I wouldn't bother with putting in a zip this time I found it was loose enough to pull over my head. I'd take it in somewhat too. The model on this picture must be very tall, I shortened the pattern for my costume and it was still too long, I don't think I'm that short...

Burda 7052; The two sleeveless blouses are really nice, but I just don't like the sleeves with the massive shoulders, it looks so unflattering.
