Word of warning, if something seems a bit wonky about this post, I got glutened over the weekend so bear with my recovering brain. I couldn't wait any longer to share my plans with you and hopefully help restrain myself....
You see I had SO many plans I couldn't figure out what to do first and realizing that I only had 12 weeks left at the time I knew I wouldn't be able to get everything floating around in my brain done. Enter the chart.... I tried to draw it all out and make this cool collage but there were still too many choices and it didn't photograph well. :P
I decided to start with the most necessary items and work my way out from there. The biggest hole in my wardrobe is pants/trousers. Especially now that I'm working at a summer camp. So I broke down and bought Grainline's Maritime Shorts and have entered the "MARITIME MARATHON"
I have it fitted to me and hacked to bermuda shorts length and tested skinny and bootcut jeans with it. The only alteration I have left to make is figuring out how to add a back yoke so it looks more like jeans.
I have completed one pair of red print shorts and have plans to make one more denim pair. I'm finishing up a pair of navy twill skinnies and am debating between a wide/straight leg denim trousers or a more fitted Maritime jeans variation. Any advice is appreciated. I'm hoping I can get it all figured out so I can assembly line sew several of these babies.
I bought the whole collection when it first came out and the last of them finally arrived! I'm usually cold so a couple of shrugs or jackets are on the to make list!
The only other things I need to make are some undershirts and I'm waffling between the Sammy Cami or hacking my TNT knit top pattern into a built in bra tank...
I have a ton of knit tops I really REALLY want to make and a couple corduroy jackets but I'm not sure when I'll get it all fit in... Maybe as rewards when I finish the necessary stuff?
I'm also working ahead on the monthly themes for when I'm at camp so I don't leave you guys totally hanging then but I can't exactly list them because that would be "Spoilers"! Guess who I'm thinking about now....... Muahahaahahahaha!
Ok that zapped all my energy so I better quit this rambling and go eat some homemade pizza... bye bye.
