February or What will I sew in the future

Like most people who sew their own clothes, I've got to a point where I need to plan more what I sew, so that I really wear it.

The thing is, there are some really awesome patterns out there and some really eye catching fabrics too but, not all suit me or my body. I might fall in love with beautiful flowery fabrics but how often will i really wear it? Very few.

To prove that, I took away all my 'I don't wear this' handmades and left only those that I really really like.

And this is what happened...

So I understood that I have to start planning outfits. But how does that work when everyday we see a new pattern?

So I went the other way around. I went to some shops, and checked out some Pinterest boards to get an idea of what kind of clothes caught my eye and suited me.

After that, I searched for patterns that were similar to the clothes I liked and this is what I came up with:

 

 

Top Left to Right: The Bettine dress, by Tilly and the Buttons; Tania cullotes, by Megan Nielsen; Addison top ,by Seamwork; The Hudson pants, by True Bias. Bottom Left to right: Blackwood cardigan, by Helen's closet; The Orla dress, by french navy now; Catarina dress, by Seamwork; Rumi Tank, by Christine Haines.
