Got my apartment stuff sorted out (keys on the way to me and bill paid) and thinking about other things, like what is on the sewing docket for the coming year. I've mentioned my projects before but I'm kind of sad that all of my upcoming projects are already decided. I like it being a bit open-ended. But since the reason for these projects being determined is the fact that I have specific things to wear these to, it's not really a bad thing. So here are the projects and their different elements, just to keep it organized:

1. 1895 ensemble: petticoat, corset cover, skirt, blouse, bow tie, straw boater, (jacket?)
2. 2 baby quilts
3. 1867 outfit: corset, crinoline, petticoat, (chemise?), print dress, hat, shawl
4. 1883 plaid kilted outfit: kilted underskirt, overskirt, velveteen bodice (I hope 1m is enough for this, if now, I have a cotton-silk suiting I could dye green that would work), (collar?), (cuffs?)
5. 1883 outerwear: coat, faux fur short cape, faux fur muff, faux fur hat, nubia
6. Modern: grey shorts

It's a lot of items for me to make in a year, but last year I made 3 ensembles/dresses for Costume College, so I think I can get it done. And when these are finished, I have some others that I want to get done after (maybe for the Francaise Dinner or Costume College in 2017).

1. Painted 1780s gown: bum pad, petticoat, petticoat, gown, wig, cap/hat
2. Lilac silk and cream net 1871 evening gown: petticoat, skirt, overskirt, bodice
3. 1816 ensemble: print dress or shortgown/skirt combo, cap/hat, apron, ruff/chemisette
4. 1790 riding habit: shirt, cravat, petticoat, waistcoat, jacket, hat
OR 4. 1908 ensemble: net guimpe, green jumper dress, (hat?)
OR 4. 1920s one-hour dress: lavender polka dot day dress, hat
OR 4. Yellow linen-rayon 1930s/40s something
OR 4. 1916 outfit: petticoat, corset cover, striped skirt, blouse, hat
OR 4. 1869 burnt orange dress: dress, overdress,
5. Modern: pants, (blouse?), (wool-cashmere blazer?) (birds voile dress?)

I have fabric for all of these, or at least most of the fabric/supplies, and Pinterest boards, so these are all projects that I am thinking of for the near future. I have some more fabrics in the stash for things, but not too sure about when I would get to them or exactly what the fabrics should be. These are:

1. Teal silk velvet spencer
2. Pink linen 1770s stays
3. 1779 striped silk polonaise
4. 1950s suit: skirt, pants, blazer
5. 1876 pink striped polonaise
6. 3 m narrow white muslin
7. 6 yds plaid silk
8. 5 yds ivory wool
9. 6 m synthetic rust satin
10. 3 m pink dotted voile

It sounds like you have a great list of things lined up that you want to make and are ready to make. I hope you're able to find some flexibility to work on what you want to work on and that it coincides with what you need to work on. Best wishes, and I can't wait to see some of the finished products.

Thanks! My lists are probably overly ambitious, but I like seeing everything laid out, and hopefully I'll actually get most of these things done.
