Sewing Inspiration: Winter 2017

I’ve been chasing my tail trying to decide on what to sew next. The main things I need are active-wear and everyday clothes that I won’t mind getting dirty. So many ideas, but where to start? Sound all too familiar?

So I thought I’d make a mood board of my wish list. While I was doing this, I decided to scale the inspiration photos in size based on how much I wanted/needed to make the item. It was a good way to try to come up with some sort of prioritised list.  I’m mainly looking at the styles here, the colours are likely to be different.  Mostly shades of grey, pink, olive and brown – depending on what is in my stash – along the lines of the colour palettes in the last board.

  1. You have some amazing garments listed here and love the colour inspiration. My main need is tops, both work and play so I really do need to find the time to sew.
