I am looking forward to my second year participating in Make Nine. I am hoping I can complete more projects this year than my #2017MakeNine. I have chosen patterns that I will probably make more than one version of – how great is it when you find patterns you know you will use again & again!
My 2018 Make Nine Projects
So…what’s on my list for 2018
(you can shop the patterns at the bottom of this post)
Zinnia Skirt – Colette Patterns
This one is a carry over from 2017 although I am planning to make Version 3 not Version 1 as I feel like this will suit my more laid back wardrobe more.
McCalls Tunic M7473
I couldn’t help but add another tunic to my Make Nine this year. I love the many variations of this tunic and think it is the perfect transitional piece.
McCalls Swimsuit M7168
I’m trying a few new things this year with #SewMyStyle like coats & lingerie so why not add swimwear to the mix! I fell in love with the many variations of this McCalls pattern – perfect for mixing & matching!
Vogue Kimono Dress V9253
I would love to make one of these dresses this year although it may be the pattern I don’t end up getting around to! That gorgeous neckline is the perfect mix of sexy but still classy. I just need an event to wear it to…
I’ve had this pattern in my stash for a while but haven’t gotten around to making it yet! We have a wedding in March I would love to make one for and have a few cute summery versions planned.
I mean…how could I not! Apart from the amazing name, I am so in love with this dress. I purchased some gorgeous chambray from the girls at Fabric Drop and would also love to make a few linen / printed versions. Mimi also hacked this into a top and it is sooooo cute!
Another pattern I am bringing over from 2017. I am still in love with these jeans but I just need to invest in the right material! I feel like I would get a lot of wear out of these with the high waist & skinny legs.
Now that I’ll be working from home I will definitely have a more relaxed style. I know wrap skirts like these will be come a wardrobe staple because they are so easy to wear and style, you can dress them up or keep them casual andddd – I love them! This pattern also comes with a ruffle skirt version and two body suits – win – win!
I’ve been panning a hack for this dress for months but just haven’t had a chance to try it out! If it works I have a few versions of this planned.

I am hoping this along with #SewMyStyle will really start cementing my handmade wardrobe going forward. Are you participating?
