It's getting really cold here, which means I need to start making some of those fall/winter dresses I've been dreaming about since July! My plans (I love daydreaming about what I'm going to sew next!) with their fabrics:
After that, I'll try to squeeze in another (hopefully) quick butterick 2952, this time another one like the pink one, but from a houndstooth wool, and with a waistband (somehow I always picture myself wearing that (still imaginary) dress in paris, with a big fancy hat on and a crocodile leather purse, walking a big black poodle. I might start calling it the Poodle Dress :)). I'm thinking about making a (removable) collar for this one.
Then the Tweed "Chanel" Dress, which will be a slightly bigger project, because I need to draft the pattern. I first wanted to make this when I saw laurianas version, and then kept seeing more versions of this kind of dress! In Paris I finally found the right kind of herringbone fabric (it's not tweed, but I like to call it the "Tweed Dress" anyway :)). I might also change the design to include a waistband, I'll see if I like it on the Houndstooth Poodle Sheath first.

And finally, I want to sew that Bustier Dress from Gertie's online course! I bought 3 different colors of shantung when I was in New York, this dark seafoam one will be the one I use first. I'm excited for this one! I'm going to take my time with this one (my first time using boning!), but I'm excited to try out a few new techniques :)
Hopefully I can get started on the Lucille Dress soon! I'm a little scared of the wool crepe, pre-treating it is a little complicated from what I've read (steaming the entire thing with the iron...), but at least the pattern is fairly simple.
