Sewing Lists?

Right now I feel like there are a million things that I want to sew, but not a whole lot of time to actually sew. I have been seeing so many cute patterns on-line lately and I keep adding things to my mental list of things I want to sew. Currently on my list I have:

1. The Collette Laurel dress that I will finish in my class Saturday (Yay!);

2. My homework Laurel dress that I have been making on my own;

3. My Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt that is currently in progress (I’m still waiting for my zipper to arrive);

4. I just purchased enough knits to make 3 pairs of leggings;

5. The Plantain shirt by Deer and Doe;

6. The Renfrew shirt by Sewaholic;

7. Various baby items since my soon to be sister-in-law and my sister are both pregnant;

8. The Gabriola skirt by Sewaholic; and

9. I signed up for a Tilly and the Buttons Coco dress class (I guess I will be sewing a lot of knits in the near future);

I also have other patterns on my I want to sew list that I haven’t gotten patterns/fabric/notions for, including:

1. The Washi dress by Made by Rae;

2. The Hazel dress by Victory patterns;

3. The Belladone dress by Deer & Doe;

4. The Chloe dress by Victory patterns;

5. The Clara dress by Sew Liberated ….

My list goes on. So, what is on everyone else’s sewing list? or do other people not make sewing lists?

  1. That is quite a list! At least most of the knits will probably be pretty quick makes. I have made a list of garments that I want to make to eventually switch to a complete self made wardrobe but I haven’t matched everything to patterns yet. I change my mind too often.

    • Hmm adding things to my sewing list according to what I need in my wardrobe may be a better idea, but I guess I don’t shop for clothes that way either, I just buy what strikes my fancy, so I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that I seem to be sewing that way too.

      • Sewing what you need will probably also help to get you to actually wear what you make. For example I see a lot of really cute dress patterns but I just know that I would wear a dress like that maybe once a year to a party and then it’s not really worth my time to make 5 of those. Instead I make t-shirts, perhaps more boring but I’ll wear them at least once a month.
