I hope this weekend finds you well! I am actually on a camping trip with my family, but I wanted to talk about what I am up to for October.
As you know, I am a planner, but I go with the flow in executing those plans. Because of that, I don't think I've ever done any re-caps of things I have sewn during a particular month. Let's just face it--I'm not that productive! So please humor me as I remind you of my September sewing. There are only two garments I completed (and a particular pair of jeans that remain unfinished), but I'm still gonna celebrate it!
Here they are:

Right: Simplicity 1805
I really love Simplicity 1805, but I want a pair of dress pants to go with it. I'll have to do some peeking into my closet to see if I can come up with a good solution. Dress pants are on my "to sew" list, though I know if I don't finish my jeans soon, I will not get to them so my dress pants will wait a bit.
But the part I am excited about is this:
I've knocked two items off my Fall sewing list!!!!!!!!!!!! That is sooooooo big for me! In fact, I am cleaning my closet out so that I can create a special place for my new pieces. The best part is, I am loving all of my newest acquisitions, and they are things I WILL wear!
That brings me to my thoughts for October. Now, let me just tell you, I am going to put it all out there, and we'll see how it all ends up when I re-cap October sewing next month. Here goes:
Simplicity 1805, per special hubby request. I want to try this again with a ponte knit.
Mccalls 6844 Cardigan. I plan on sewing one for sure, with possibly adding more colors if I really like it.
If by chance I finish everything here, I have plenty of items I can add into the mix. But the BIG factor for me would be pulling together an entirely ME MADE outfit. So, that is what I am focusing on in order to finish out the month of October--after I get back from camping, that is!!
