My September Sew for 30 Plan

September 1st is quickly approaching.  Are you ready?

I have lots of projects planned for this year's September Sew for 30 Challenge.

Numero Uno - First a foremost is the remaking of my wedding gown into a vow renewal ensemble of some sort.  I am taking the first week of September off of work and am treating it as a mini "Sewing Vacation" and plan to tackle this job first.  I have lots and lots of yardage to work with here as you can see in our wedding photo below - so we'll see what evolves.....

Once the vow renewal outfit is done - I have a bunch of other projects already cut out and ready to sew.  So - here we go - from top to bottom, left to right:

  • The bright green will be a new Cynthia Rowley top - Simplicity 2281.  Pretty much a direct copy of the blue one I made recently.
  • The two fabrics in the upper right (one stack pink, one stack green/black) will be 3 Sew Together Bags by Sew Demented.  I haven't made these before but am looking forward to it.  I bought the pattern at a craft show earlier this year and the sample bag looked very cute!
  • Below the bag stacks is more pajamas!  McCalls 3017 - my favorite pj pattern.  This time, I'll be using a cute flannel with a bug print on it.  Recently snagged the flannel at only $2.00 per yard!
  • A turtleneck from the green and blue knit.
  • A Katherine Tilton pattern - Butterick 5925.  I've made this pattern before and really like it. This time, I'll be using a medieval knit print and I purchased at this year's Sewing Garage Sale, paired with a polka dot and lots and lots of trims.  This top I think will either be fantastic or a huge flop - we'll have to wait and see!

 Then, if I get all of the projects above done, I have a few crafty ones as well.

  • A garment bag out of the top two fabrics.
  • Christmas Woolens ornaments to finish. I started these last year but didn't complete them.
  • A new Christmas advent garland.  This is half finished too.

I think with all of these projects I should be pretty busy!  What are your plans for September Sew for 30?

Happy sewing everyone!
