This is the first time I've hit a bit of a sewing roadblock. I've finished my shorts, but I don't have anything lined up that I've been planning to make. I need some help. I've got a ton of gorgeous fabrics stashed away and more patterns than I could use in an entire year, but no one project that I'm dying to make - or maybe too many that I would like to make.
Out of my fabric stash, I want to work with one of three fabrics next. The first is a gorgeous light weight silk pattern.
The other two fabrics are both stretch knits. The first of the stretch knits is a light salmon color and the second is a deep purple. Out of the three, which do I work with first? And, what do I make? My general thoughts are: a maxi dress with a v-neck line, a strapless maxi dress, a strapless dress like the one I made here, a long skirt, or a romper. I've scoped out a few examples of what I envision for the final product.
|Diane Von Furstenberg Maxi Wrap Dress|
This dress is very bohemian, I love it. Plus, I have a pattern that I think would definitely work.
|Strapless Long Dress by Parker|
This dress would be a bit more free form - no pattern - but easily doable. I wouldn't do the shirring all the way to the natural waist, I'd want to make it more of an empire waist line. Although, I do have a dress like this already in my closet.
|Romper Pattern by Burda Style|
I have a pattern for this and could do either a full pant, or make it into a romper with shorts instead.
|Strapless Maxi Dress by Splendid|
This dress would work with the stretch knits, but not the silk. It would be a bit of a challenge to do the top - also no pattern - but I'm up for it. It's super cute.
|Torn by Ronny Kobo Maxi Dress|
I have a pattern that fits this dress perfectly, so it would be nice to not have to completely alter a pattern for once and the look and fit of the dress is beautiful.
Too many choices! Any thoughts on what I should make next?
