I’ve not worked on much this week. I’ve done some knitting, but it doesn’t look different enough to bother with another picture. I didn’t get a chance to do any sewing, but I did carve out some time to support patterns.
In working on the sloper, I realized that much of my fabric was already claimed in my mind for a specific project. However, I didn’t always know exactly which pattern or even if there was enough fabric for what I wanted to do. So I started matching fabric and patterns. The yellow notes on there are notes to myself about notions or sizes or fitting.
I started to count, but when I got to the ones that are waiting on me drafting a pattern, I quit. That was at 23 so I’m guessing around 30. My number one priority to make is work pants. I’ve got two fabrics, one a cotton and the other a blend with no stretch. I’ve also got three pants patterns to choose from. The Vogue pattern came with Sandra Betzina’s Craftsy class, Pant Construction Techniques. It’s my least favorite of the styles, however.
My next one was already high on my list and then The Curvy Sewing Collective announced the wrap a long and this pattern was one of the recommended ones. Hopefully I can get my act together in time to do that.
At first I was going to prioritize beyond just the first couple, but I think that will just distract me. Focus will be key for me to get these actually done!
