In my spring 2011 inspiration post, I said my first sewing goal for the month of April was to make a pair of pants. To make this goal a reality, I needed a pattern. I found what I hope will become an oft-used pattern for a pair of jeans on PatternReview. To better illustrate my plan and keep my focus, I pulled out my specific inspirational colors and outfit sketch by Bibhu Mohapatra from yesterday’s larger image. Now, I need to find my fabric. But I have a bit of time there since I’ll definitely be making a muslin.
If I get inspired, I also have a pattern from my birthday stash that is vaguely reminiscent of the jacket in the above sketch. Maybe 2011 will be the year of the coat? I like the sound of that. Done.
