2017 Sewing Plans & Goals:
Well, it's 2017, the year I need to finally get a few long-planned outfits done like my first Robe a la Francaise, jacket/s for my husband, and get foundation garments (my least favorite) done for new era's: Victorian, 1830's and proper Edwardian.
PLANNED for 2017:
-Robe a la Francaise
-Late 18th and early 19th century men's jacket for HB
-late Victorian corset
-late Victorian foundation garments
-Tiffany blue fur trimmed late 18th century pelisse
-Outerwear - late Victorian
-Pumpkin Tea shoes - bees or fleur-de-lis
-Regency Pumpkin Tea flag - inspired by Kat's Victorian Party flag
-Stays/Corsets: 1830's, Edwardian, Georgian, Regency
-Regency bee spencer and bonnet
-Regency sari dress
-18th century jacket/dress with a hood
-More Etsy shop stuff - muffs, reticules, and more
My plans for 2017 sewing include the continuation of my 2016 goals:
Goal #1: sew for CREATIVITY
Continue to sew and integrate creative arts into sewing: creativity with trim, painting and more. Sew under creative inspiration.
Goal #2: sew more MEN'S garments
Really focus on getting a few things done for my husband in 2017. He doesn't costume with me more than a few times a year, but I need to make him some jackets!
Goal #3: work on my LONG-term sewing plans
2017 is the year of Victorian for me! I'm starting with 1880's bustle, with full foundation garments up first. I also would like to get to my 1830's finally in 2017. Continue to make foundation garments for new eras and re-do's for eras I already do. Continue to stretch into new eras. Finish my first Robe a la Francaise. Continue to build a wardrobe of options :).
It's the year of foundation garments for me! It's about time for new Regency and late 18th century stays, and I also need to make stays for new eras I want to do: Victorian, 1830's, Edwardian.
Continue with lots of HAND-sewing projects ready to go at a moment's notice. Continue to plan and sew for events in advance, low pressure sewing is the most enjoyable. Continue to sew from the STASH. Continue to de-stash where I can, but also continue to acquire lovely fabrics that inspire creativity, as long as I sew them within 6 months or so of acquiring them wherever possible. UFO's pile if there's time.
UFO's I could finish in 2017:
-Finish my Regency rose cotton velvet spencer
-Finish my 1780's cream silk jacket - jacket mid-way and petticoat hem
-Light green cotton Regency
-Lots of Etsy shop projects
I have a lot of sewing planned for 2017, and I generally get no more than a few outfits and then accessories in a year, so wish me luck, and good luck to you with your 2017 sewing plans too!
