The Plan for FESA 2013

While I might not have got round to sewing as yet (which may have something to do with the fact that I forgot that I had promised my son a coat and he will be home at Thanksgiving which is next weekend in Canada!!).

I do have a plan in place and all the fabric is washed and ready to go! So I hope to be able to make something from each of the categories:

Fashionable Foundations
Navy blue Sewaholic Thurlow trousers. I haven’t used this pattern yet and have been looking forward to trying it out.

My stretch goal for this would be to also make a caramel / brown Grainline Moss skirt. I really like the denim one I made a few weeks ago.

Chic Chemises for Cool Climates
I took part in a spring swap challenge earlier this year and received among other things a lovely pattern for a top, from a pattern company I have never heard of, Silhouette patterns. I thought this turquoise would be nice and bright for Fall weather.

My stretch goal would be to also complete a button down shirt either a Grainline Archer Shirt or a Burda one.The fabric was bought about 3 years ago from Joanne’s, on a cross border shopping trip.

Fabulous Frocks
As part of the previously mentioned Spring Swap, my partner sent me a lovely piece of grey knit fabric which I am going to underline in a plain tricot and use this wrap dress pattern that I bought on sale the other day.

Underneath It All
Two pair of panties and two bras, fabric already purchased and partly cut out from last year!

Tender Handies!
I plan to knit to a pair of Owl gloves. Using a free pattern from Mollie Makes magazine. These gloves will match my owl (“nice hooters”!) sweater that I knitted last year as I have left over yarn.

Also a another Sashay scarf as they are quick and easy and add a pop of colour to any coat or jacket in the fall. I picked up a ball of blue Sashay yarn.

Those Cozy Nights
Not exactly cozy PJs but I got this red fabric from out first Toronto meet–up (I think 
from Seraphinalina) and picked up this pattern earlier this year when they were on sale.

Baby It's Cold Outside
I have a grey Sewaholic Robson trenchcoat cut out and partly sewn. This needs to get finished. 

Then I also plan to make another  Sewaholic Minoru coat as I live in the one I made in 2012.


  1. It looks like you have a lot on your plate, sewing wise. I hope you have fun. :-)

  2. I fell behind on my blog reading, but yes, I suspect that red fabric came from my stash. It's good to see it being used! (or at least planned, that's a pretty long list)
