I have an announcement to make! It is February 20th, and I do consider my winter wardrobe, COMPLETE. Those are famous last words, but I'm pretty sure I'm done.
The exciting news is that I can now get started on my Spring and Summer wardrobes! YAY!
As much as I love my "fly by the seam of my pants" creative process, it doesn't do a very good job of getting me from fabric to project to a completed wardrobe. So I'm actually going to create a flexible plan. A list of patterns that WILL be able to create a finished wardrobe that will gladly be mix and match.
You may be thinking that I could just move a bunch of my stuff from last year, into my pile for this year, but my body shape has completely changed in the last year and my bust size is easily 2" bigger with a larger overbust. I'm not sure how that happened, but it did. And there's no guarantee that my shape won't revert back either. So I'll keep the old clothes but definitely add in the new!
#2- Shorts/capris, pants
Shorts. I definitely have the pants thing down from my winter sews, so I need to focus on shorts and capris.

Patterns for Pirates Free Spirit Tank is my go to loose swing style dress,
tunic and top. And you better believe I need a loose flowy fit to survive summer. And, this pattern even comes with a crop length, which is a style I'm wanting to try this year.
cross back and scoop back options I've made, I can guarantee I'll be making at least a few more of these.
I have refound my love for dresses this past winter and I can't wait to wear what I've already sewn up. But I'm sure I'll get the urge to sew up at least a few dresses, so I should have a plan!

pleated skirt is really flattering on my body shape and I LOVE a good maxi dress for summer. It doesn't have a sleeveless option, but I'm sure I can fix that easily.
It might be shocking to hear, but to survive the Wyoming summer, I will need both a few cardigans AND a light jacket. As soon as the sun starts to set, temperature plummit and our nights are often only about 50 degrees! We like to use those cool night temperatures to get outside (since there are basically no mosquitoes).
I bet I'm missing things. What's on your sewing list?
