If I am soon going have stylish handmade shoes, (my flip flops worked fairly well, the straps stretched but they still look nice- more on them soon...) I am going have to step up my wardrobe game. I am tired of my jeans and t-shirt uniform and would like to buy and make some new clothes.
I know I'm going to need more than sweaters, but Isa at The Owl Sisters designed and is giving away the pattern for the lovely Muse-
It looks like something that would be stylish and cozy.
I would like to try some sewing and make Angry Chicken's 5 Minute Skirt and Wool Leggings. Laura and I may soon have a serger to play around with, I am going to wait for that before I try Amy's tutorials.
For this summer and fall, I would like some churidar leggings. Plain cotton is bias cut for leggings that are tight around the ankle and roomy in the waist. Like these from Toast:
I also like these easy-sew Thai Fisherman's pants from Burdastyle.
If I could knit like the wind, I'd like to make make Mandel by fallmasche-
and the popular Oatmeal Pullover by Jane Richmond.
I'd also like to sew some wide-leg heavy linen pants and either buy or sew some new shorts for the rest of summer. Please share any sewing/diy fashion blogs that you find particularly helpful I could use all the help I can get!
