I need to get organized, so I am going to post my ideas for getting some fall sewing done.
The girl is in need of pretty much everything. She has grown several inches since last year, so of course, none of her pants fit. I made most of her leggings long, so they kind of fit.
Re-measuring is in process.
One outfit I would like to make for her is a copy of this Diesel dress. I have some chambray fabric and some patterns I can mash up together. I will make some leggings to go with it, and probably line the body with a comfy and warm knit. Mine won’t end up looking so “broken in”, but it will still be cute and trendy.
This is the fabric I will use for it. The pink will be for leggings underneath.
I also like this little dress, only with some sleeves and in knit. Again, some leggings for underneath. I have some plaid knit, but not enough for the whole dress. I think I will do the skirt and the neck flounce in that and the rest in a dark complementary knit.
I have some fabrics for the Cruise chinos and Star Top. I will likely do the graphic on the solid color body and print for the sleeves, similar to the shorts and top I did last week. I have a grey/white print of mine to use.
She will probably get a couple pairs of chinos, since they fit her well. She wants “dark” colors right now, so I will be leaning more towards that section of my fabric stash. I also have a few things to upcycle for her.
This will be a top of some sort and then black ponte leggings. The leggings can go with the dress above and the chambray dress/top.
The dragon scales with either be leggins or maybe Domi pants. The top is going to have the white and HTV in the middle and red for the arms. Not sure what top to do yet. If I go with leggings, then I will likely do a Hibernis top.
I will be buying her some jeans, most likely, and need to match a shirt to a pair of her Justice jeans I got on clearance that are green and white patterned. She has nothing that matches right now. She also wants a “black leather jacket”, so I will see if Zulily has something that will work.
As for the boy, well, he is basically hoodies and t-shirts. I need to find some good solid hoodie fabric. I have several t-shirts to make him out of Deadpool and Fallout fabric. I have a Harry Potter one, too, and he said he would wear it. I can use some of the busy prints on the inside of the pockets and hood for the hoodies.
He will be getting some purchased pants, but not sure what he wants yet. He starts middle school, so I’m not sure if he is going to want all-athletic-pants all-the-time. I think something with a zipper fly is more age appropriate, but what do I know??
My plan this week was to make up the t-shirts for the not-so-little-anymore dude, so that is still a plan since I actually have a free weekend day tomorrow. Hopefully I can get to work! I also have a test for a cardigan/vest to do. That should be pretty quick and easy, and something I wanted for my fall capsule. I have some fabrics planned for it, and it should look pretty nice and fit in well.
Hopefully, it will be a productive weekend!
