After finishing my Christmas gifts which included the infinity scarfs, and 3 variations of the Jalie pleated cardigan:

Jalie 2919 Grey Flocked Knit

Jalie 2919 in Grey Rayon Knit

I made a third one for my mom, but didn’t upload a pic.  It’s rather like my ‘spice’ coloured one but in blue & purple tones.  

Now onto some capsule sewing for me. I was thinking of 4-5 co-ordinates for work, then adding some casual pieces later, based on a grey/black/cream/red colourway.  Oh, I’d also like a top to wear under my spice coloured jalie – maybe I can see if I can work that into the mix.  So far my ambitions list (which ALWAYS exceeds my ability & time) is:

to be added later:

  • Red plaid tunic – either a pintuck front type with a collar band from Burda or slim long-shirt like Vogue 2972 by Alice & Olivia
  • Slim jeans, not as skinny as before from Jalie
  • second pair of leggings with some contrast panels of snakeskin print
  • another Vogue 2980 Sandra Betzina top with faux bolero – it’s just so cute and easy.  I need a white one. 

Here are the main contenders for the fabrics, there are a couple of red co-ordinates (not shown)

Winter fabrics

Shown above from top to bottom are: deep charcoal rayon knit with a wide white stripe of  tie-dye across it; a puckered novelty knit in cream, stretch mesh with matte sequins in black with a blue cast

Shown above, top to bottom:  Rayon Poly lycra with pinstripes, black rayon knit and knit with printed skin overlay.  Below is the brushed plaid.

I also have some cherry red rayon knit, some lipstick red ponte knit and a red, burnt orange and black striped mystery knit that may make the cut.

What’s in your machines this week??
