Make Nine 2021

Last year I didn't commit to any make nine plans which was probably a good thing looking at how the year turned out! But, back in January, in an attempt to give my sewjo a kick up the bum I made some plans for this year, I also thought it might help me get back onto the blogging again. I can't help but feel I've cheated a little as I bought half of these patterns in the Black Friday sales and have already got the fabrics for them too, but at least I know I have plans for my purchases!
So here they are...

From left to right, top to bottom we have:

  • Style Arc Blaire shirt dress
  • Tilly and the Buttons Ness skirt
  • Pattern Emporium Songbird Duster
  • Chalk & Notch Fringe Dress
  • Sew House 7 Free Range Slacks
  • Honse Design Two Man Gang sweater
  • Sew House 7 Wildwood Wrap Dress
  • Deer & Doe Plantain Tee
  • Simplicity 8554 coat

I've made the Blaire shirt a couple of times but never the dress so I'm looking forward to trying that variation when I can find the perfect fabric. I've also made the Fringe top but not the full dress. I've got a couple of possible fabrics for this and I think it will be a great one for the summer. The rest I've never made before. Four of them were Black Friday purchases and one was bought in the January sales.

I think there is a good range of garments here and I'm looking forward to pairing them together. I've already got plans for the Ness skirt to go with a Plantain with the Songbird Duster.

I'd like to make the Wildwood Wrap dress fairly soon as I think it could be a good one for layering in the cooler months.

I'm a few threads off finishing my Two Man Gang sweater so there might be a more in depth blog post on that very soon!

So lets start ticking off those makes!!!
