I recently bought bunches of fabric from Denver fabrics with the plan of sewing a fall wardrobe. I love Denver fabrics. The fabric I order is always nice quality, and you can order matching thread.
The first three fabrics are going to become Wiksten tanks. I've found a simple tutorial to modify the pattern to reduce the size of the back. I also found an amazing tutorial that explains bias facing. I never understood that this was different than bias binding. I recently sewed a second Wiksten tank, and it made an incredible difference! I would also like to modify the neckline and arm holes a tiny bit. I think I'm going to cut a second version that's an extra small, with a small length. I'm so excited to see how they turn out. I might even make some short sleeves for one.
The gray chambray is going to turn into the Colette Crepe dress. I might actually make a muslim for this pattern, as I want the wrap to fit correctly.
The pretty blue twill is going to turn into a Wiksten tulip skirt. Honestly, I cut this pattern with another fabric, and it was just wrong. I don't know what happened (the paper printed it in the right size). However, the pleats were much smaller than the ones pictured, and the waist size was crazy small.
The jean will be turned into a Ginger skirt, also from Colette patterns. I haven't ordered this pattern yet, but it looks pretty simple. As long as it fits in the waist, I should have no problems.
What do you think? Do you have other pattern suggestions that might help me out?
