Spring Wardrobe Sewing Plans

After a lot of planning, thinking and scheming, I finally decided upon these six pieces to make for my new spring wardrobe. I stuck a rather neutral palette of greys and blues that will easily fit into my existing wardrobe. The selections are on trend, inspired by my Spring Wardrobe inspiration board and fill in the gaps of my current wardrobe. Oh, and I'm only using stash fabrics!!!

Here are the details (with links):

1. Salmon Silk Blouse 
Pattern: Self Drafted
I'm planning to wing it on this one and make a blouse similar to the one I made for this outfit.

2. Slouch Top 
Pattern: DIY Couture
I got the book DIY Couture for Christmas this last year. I haven't made anything from it yet but I'm pretty excited to do so.

3. Navy Knit Top
Pattern: Drape Drape 2, No. 4
I have Drape Drape 2 in Japanese so wish me luck with this one. :) You can find it here in English.

4. Pencil Skirt
Even though there are lots of pencil skirt patterns out there, I have yet to find a favorite. I'm planning to use Simplicity 4047 (now out of print) for this one.

5. Pleated Pants
This is probably my most "out there" choice 'cause you know when do you really need knit pleated pants? But between Vogue V8657 and all the pants in Drape Drape 3, I just really, really want to make some for myself.

6. Pleated Mid-Calf Skirt
I was totally inspired by this photo to make this skirt. I'm still debating a little bit whether to make a gathered waistband or a pleated one.

I'm really looking forward to making these new clothes. Keep checking back in to see how I'm coming along! Are you making any new clothes for spring?

  1. I know it probably isn't a big deal for you, but your illustrations are awesome and I feel like I can totally see where you're going with this. Will be fun to see it all come to life.

  2. You can definitely do the Drape Drape 2 #4 top without it being in English! I made it and it's my most made pattern; it's one piece and has maybe 3 seams and one neckline, which I wing every time. I have 3 now! It's so quick too; I made one during Project Runway!

    Good luck, can't wait to see it!

  3. Looking forward to seeing your sewing projects. Esp the slouch top from diy couture!
