Well, so far these are my decisions. For the wool boucle jacket, I’m leaning heavily to this new Marfy 2922 pattern. I’m just waiting for it to arrive. It’s very Chanel, and I really like the collar detail. And I don’t have to draft my own, peeps!
Vintage Vogue 2354 for a LRD from wool crepe. I don’t have a pic of the wool, but it’s very lovely red, and has been crying to be made into a dress for probably a decade or so.
Claire Schaeffer’s Vogue 7881 for the sage and the caramel wools. This may change to my favourite pants pattern, Vogue 2578, or I may do one of each. I’ve made up both a few times. All I know is that I want dressy straight or wide-leg trousers out of both wools.
And Vogue 8626 for Harris Tweed. Which kinda looks boring as I’m looking at this on my computer screen. Maybe I’ll do Marfy 1401 instead. I’m leaning towards the Marfy, but I prefer the back details of the Vogue – the Marfy is very A-line plain and I’d need to decided on velvet or leather or something for the trim. Fur? Hmmmm… And then I’d have to see if I’m up to making a muslin of 3 different Marfy patterns…. for one season. Ulp.
And I’m planning to take Steph C’s advice: Start with the easiest. That will be the ponte knit skirt. What do you think? I hope I didn’t bite off more than I can sew.
