Sewing top fives: goals

Last of the Sewing Top Fives of 2020: goals. I didn’t complete most of last year’s goals, so I’m setting the bar low for 2021.

I want to complete my sewing with a plan wardrobe. This should be achievable. There are three more garments to go. I already have fabric for the last pair of trousers, and I have the fabric and have even traced the pattern for the white blouse. The third piece is a simple Burda top that I’m having some doubts about now I’ve read a few reviews of it. I may replace that pattern with something else.

However I think I may have to make an extra wardrobe piece to replace the black blouse that didn’t fit. I’ve got a fairly basic Burda shirt pattern lined up for that. So maybe it’s four more pieces. That should take me until April or May. After that, all bets are off. I’m hoping the world will look quite different by then, and who knows what I’ll feel like sewing.

  1. I have a similar goal, though I didn’t really state it on my blog. I want to finish the mini wardrobe I planned out last year for the pattern review contest that I never had time to finish or enter. I just finished my second piece (I need to blog both of them still), so I’m hoping it’s do-able! I’m also considering expanding the mini-wardrobe plans to do more of the My Body Model’s 3 x 3 x 3 wardrobe (3 tops, 3 bottoms, 3 toppers) to get even more options. I won’t be surprised if it doesn’t happen (after 2020 plans seem to be made to be broken), but it’s at least something to work towards. Good luck with your sewing goals and I can’t wait to see what you make. Best wishes for the new year!

    1. The 3x3x3 sounds really flexible – much more so than a lot of the wardrobe planning suggestions I’ve found online. Fingers crossed it all works out!
