You know me and my love for knits. But anyone who owns a Brother 1034d (affiliate link) knows that its volume is slightly below "motorcycle". I figure that it would be more polite to bring my regular ole (quiet) sewing machine, which means no knits. Once you go serger, you never go back. I also don't want to sew anything that requires in-the-moment fitting. I doubt these ladies want me sewing in my underwear.
So here are my choices:
New Look 6216, the pants, with a lovely lightweight non-stretch denim I got last week from Fabric Mart. With Me-Made-May coming up, I definitely need these done ASAP. I've compared the flat pattern to another pants pattern that fits well and have noted any adjustments. There's still a small risk in terms of fit because I haven't made a muslin.
If you follow me on Instagram then you've seen this pattern, a vintage Butterick. My lovely and sweet reader Candace sent this to me because she knew I'd been searching for a good jumpsuit. I have some black linen for this one and I've already made a muslin, which fit almost perfectly.
Last but not least, a few possibilities for Easter dresses for AB. I've made these patterns before (here and here). But for both of these I need more/contrast/lining fabric and I'm trying to impose a fast on myself for the rest of the month. I'd either have to break my fast or use something "just okay" from my stash. Or maybe just be more creative! Oh, the other downside to this one is that Easter is 2 days after the event, which is sort of cutting it close.
(Speaking of a fast: someone tell me that I don't need to pre-order the bundle of the new Colette book on knits plus the two knit patterns being released next week. Haaaaaaalp! I want but probably don't need or maybe I do need?!)
What do you think of these patterns? I plan to have whatever I choose cut before I go, so I'll need to get on that next week. Have you ever gone to an event like this? Want to take bets on the one essential item I'll forget to bring?
