I feel like I learned a lot from MeMadeMay about what I actually wear and what I like to think that I wear. So I am determined to keep that in consideration when making my summer wardrobe. Here is my mood board. This is a very rough idea. I don’t want to copy these things, but make something in this ball park.
So here it is, my sewing plan for the next 3 months :
White Scout Tee : Boring I know. It became very apparent during MMM that I had a big gap in my wardrobe when it came to a nice white blouse.
Tie-Dye Blouse : I have had this blouse pinned on pinterest for awhile now. Ever since tie-dying my maxi dress I am itching to dye something else. I am hoping to recreate something really similar to this blouse for myself. I am thinking maybe gray instead though.
Floral Blazer : I know – it’s summer, so why am I making another blazer? But I have worn my chambray blazer so much and I keep wishing that I had another one. I really want to make at least one more for those breezy summer nights in a lightweight cotton. I am really hoping for a floral, but would also love any really cool print.
Peplum Top : Another thing that I have been wanting for awhile is a peplum top. I love this trend and want to make at least one that is airy and lightweight for summer. Plus I love the way they look with both pencil skirts and skinny jeans.
Cap Sleeve Knee Length Jersey Dress : I just want an easy dress that I can throw on with sandals and a belt and feel polished, but also really comfy.
Statement Necklace : I know it’s not sewing, but it’s crafty and it’s for my wardrobe. Both my maxi and midi skirt are screaming for a statement necklace. I feel like I can make one myself and I have seen a few tutorials of late that I will be using as well.
Large Modern Quilt : As most of you know we are moving to NYC in a couple of months. As a result our bedroom will most likely also be our living room. We have never done much with our bedroom because no one else sees it, but now that it will be seen I really want it to look intentional. I have never really quilted before or had much desire to quilt. Mostly because quilts don’t really fit my style. But recently I have seen some really cool and simple modern quilts that I think would be awesome. The one in the image above is from bonjour celine and is stunning. I am not sure what I want mine to look like, but I will definitly be inspired by the color palette and lines of this one.
