Sewing plans for 2013

So as everyone else is doing theirs, here are my sewing plans for 2013. 
I will be sewing on a tighter budget than usual. And I will be trying to make the pieces I want to make fit both my own 'Doctor Who sew a long' and The Dreamstress' 'Historical sew a long'.

Swing trousers (and perhaps a bow tie). 
Also need a white frilly fitted shirt and a waistcoat.
Other cold wear projects include tartan 1920's style pinafore/jumper

Clara Bow inspired dress

Some striped PJ's (this may be put on back burner for a while)

Some victorian/edwardian bloomers

A 40's style dress. My playsuit plans are on hold at the moment.
Colour may change
And a cape/cloak...design to be confirmed.
I also have an apron and matching headscarf to sew.

So that's 11 things on my current list. I would say most is cake rather than frosting.


  1. Lovely, I love your illustrations too!

  2. Can't wait to see the finished projects!

    1. Thanks...same here. lol! Too many sewing projects....too little time. I want to sew them all at once.
      I'm thinking of one project while sewing another.

  3. You're so incredibly creative!! My creativity has been on hold for a long time now, which is a shame.
