Sewing Plans for 2020

January 1st, 2020

My personal plans for 2020 are fairly simple. I didn't want to overwhelm myself with a commitment I couldn't keep. I decided to have three patterns in the "I pledge to make" category and I have two others in the "if I have time leftover" category. On top of these patterns I want to make, I want to make sure that I'm very intentional with my closet in this new year and next few years. I say I don't want to buy any new clothes. I say that, but if I keep to it, well we'll see. I want to only buy things I need second hand and then I want to make the rest myself.

So, here they are. The three garments I will make next year are the Yanta Overalls by Helen's Closet, Estuary Skirt by Sew Liberated, and the Wilder Gown by Friday Pattern Company. If I have enough time to, I also want to make the Ilford Jacket by Friday Pattern Company and the Persephone Pants by Anna Allen Clothing.

That's the plan, Stan.

Update 2/28/2020: I have completed TWO Estuary skirts so far and I have TWO Wilder Gowns almost done. I have the Yanta Overalls pattern and the fabric (a lovely Essex Linen blend from fabric.com) for it and I'm going for that next. Either I need to slow down or I can handle more sewing than I thought. ☺
