So for the last few years, I have made up a Make Nine post on Instagram and here but each year I never get round to finishing the items on the list. So I’m trying to put a little more thought into it this year and come up with something that I will actually achieve.
- Rumana Coat
I bought this coat pattern on Boxing day and am planning to make up a version of it at some point in the first quarter of the year. I will probably have to adjust the sleeves on this too.
- Active Jacket from Melissa Fehr’s Sew your own Active Wear book
Once I have received this book I want to get my teeth stuck into making myself a soft shell jacket – I always have problems with RTW ones as they always have sleeves that are too small for me.
- Wedding Shawl
I really need to get a move on with this shawl as the provisional wedding date is in May – I brought the wool, needles and beads with me to Christmas but forgot the Tambour hook that I need to put the beads onto the wool.
I cast this on on Christmas Eve and am on the second column although I have a feeling progress will slow down after the Christmas period.
- Nice going out tops
I am probably going to try and hack Butterick B5997 to try and make a top like this one in the photo and add a few more niceish tops to my wardrobe – suitable for dinner or drinks.
- Black/dark denim stretchy Ginger Jeans
I am on the lookout for some decent stretch denim to make myself some super comfy jeans.
- Sasha trousers
Thanks to Nikki I recieved this pattern (already printed) for Christmas along with some fabric, zips and interfacing so there is no excuse for me not to try these out…
- Knitted Jumper
I have yet to work out what pattern I want to make this from but I would like to knit myself another knitted jumper probably with at least some of it knit on the knitting machine
- Harriet Bra
I think that I will invest in a kit for this, I did try making a version of this but as it is missing underwires and the fabric had too much stretch it didn’t really work very well.
