blogtober day 19 // spring stash sewing

With the warmer weather hitting right as we move, I’ve yet to drag my clothes crates out of storage. There always seems to be something more pressing to unpack (like my craft room), which means I’m cycling through the same two or three outfits every time I go to town. I don’t go out that much, but when I do, it’s to the same places. Living the wonderfully glamorous life I do, it’s prestigious venues like the green grocer and the bakery and the Coles click & collect line. Clearly, repeat outfits for such visits would be beyond the pale.

I could be an adult and find the box of summer clothes in the container. Or, I could pull out my fabric box, dig through my Pinterest boards, and get sewing!

On my list for sewing my way through my stash this spring:

1// Simplicity 8605 wide leg pants. They look so comfy and wearable, and I have a lovely dirty navy linen that should look really nice in this style.

2// Thurlow trousers (shorts version). I might be pushing the stash concept for this one, but I’m going to include it – I already own the pattern, so that’s the stash part!! The last pair I made were in a mustard drill, so I’m thinking maybe a bone drill, or even a navy, would look nice.

3// I would love to add a simple dress to my summer round up, and really love the functional prettiness of La Petite Robe (the pattern is here). I do have a gingham I picked up as a remnant that could work for it?

3.5// alternately, the gingham would make a nice skirt. Something like this drafting tutorial, paired with a tank top and a fun necklace could look cute. Bonus points for stash AND self drafted (making it easier to justify the pattern & fabric purchase in part three!)

Maybe all of the above? If I’m sewing clothes, that counts as necessary, doesn’t it, and I shouldn’t feel guilty for doing that instead of sorting and unpacking boxes, right?

What’s on your spring sewing list?
