Let me be clear, I don’t really think ahead. I rarely plan anything, sewing or otherwise. I am more a spur of the moment kinda gal. This has proven to be a real problem for me. Disorganization, wasted time and so on. I know people who have all their projects organized into certain time frames with deadlines and other nonsense. Secretly I am very jealous. I’m tired of scrambling to finish articles of clothing in order to be able to wear them before the season is over. So with this in mind, I am trying to be more organized. I would like to try to sew for the upcoming seasons. After snowboarding with my kids over their February break I realized I am in need of new winter outerwear. What I currently have is old, worn and not really my style any longer. I really love the idea of a vintagy inspired style but i’m not sure of the practicality. I just don’t think sweaters alone are warm enough for the harsh winters of the northeast.
They were hardcore in Alaska in the 40′s! The next one may be more practical but I don’t know if I can rock the one piece and what a pain when you have use the ladies room.
For the pants I am thinking one of my jeans pattern in a larger size to accommodate the lining and bulkier fabric. I think in the right fabric and with some concealed interior gators this could work, right?
So this is my sewing project for the summer. To be all ready for the slopes next winter. This is so hard for me to think about when winter hasn’t ended here yet and I am dreaming of flowy summer frocks.
