Moodboards and Future Projects

As I said in the last post, I have been thinking about things I need to fill wardrobe gaps and also to soothe the pain of a RTW clothing ban until Christmas. This is what I have come up with so far. 3 skirts, 2 tops, 1 shirt and 1 cardigan. I should really plan in a more capsule wardrobe kind of way but at the moment i'm going for what helps toward stashbusting.
Most of the plans I have done are based on fabrics I already have in my stash. However the Crescent and the Liberty cord are treats i'm planning on.
I'm not sure about what I want to use for the new Lonsdale dress yet, something nice and floaty I think.
As you already know I've already started on this Polka dot jersey top! I'm waiting on the Sewaholic ones!
Most of the fabrics I'm using are from the blogger meetup in Brighton. But I'm trying really hard to work through my stash so that its not languishing.
These are kind of work in progress moodboards as I've said before I just try to get things straight in my head so I can work out what fabric will go with what pattern. I need some spur of the moment projects too to stop me getting too bored but planning is fun too!


  1. That Liberty cord is awesome. I'm excited to see your flutter sleeve cardigan. I have some super soft rayon jersey and I think I'd like to make something like that with it.

  2. So many amazing plans. The Any Butler fabric is very Lily Pulitzer-ish. I can't wait to see all of them sewn up! :]

  3. Love your picks, Stevie! That bunting cord is too cute :)

  4. I really like your post Stevie! -- I'm looking for a way to display my future projects on my blog as well. Also, I like that you sew a lot from Burda patterns. I always forget that they exist. And I am IN LOVE with your Liberty King Cord fabric. Absolutely gorgeous. My first thought is that it would be too thin for the Beignet if it's a cotton lawn. The Beignet works best with medium to heavy weight fabrics in my humble opinion. I would totally see the Pendrell or JJ Blouse in this, however. I'm totally looking forward to seeing your progress! :-)


I love reading what you have to say!
