2021 Historical Sewing Plans

I haven’t posted sewing plans here before, so why not start now? I am adjusting to the idea that school leaves me very little time to sew, but I can still hope to get some done. Also there is obviously little in the way of historical costume events right now, outside of whatever my local friends concoct. I am also going to try (yet again) to follow along with the Historical Sew Monthly challenges.

18th c. Wardrobe

Pockets – They need binding and a waistband tape, but I was hoping to combine it into a bigger order from B&T so I haven’t bought the tape for this yet. This may be my March HSM “Small is Beautiful” entry.

Regency Wardrobe

Redingote – I am attempting to finish up my (only semi-accurate) regency redingote/walking costume this January for the #wednesdaywintersewalong I am hosting. This will double as my January HSM “Joy” Challenge.

Chemise – My old chemise is getting pilly and tearing because of the poor fabric choice. If I can afford some new linen, I may try to put together a new chemise, maybe as a demo. I also want to try some patterns other than the S&S ones, for various reasons. This easily fits the November HSM “Zero Waste” Challenge.

1920’s Wardrobe

Wearing History’s 1921 Bandeau – Finish the mock-up. This definitely counts for the February HSM “Roaring 20s” Challenge.

McCall 5623 – I’ve had a mock-up done for ages, I need to finalize fabric and make the real thing! Since I’ve already got my bra for the ’20s challenge, this one may get shoehorned into another HSM challenge.

I think if I’m being realistic, even these few projects will be too many, but it is good to remind myself of projects that I have already started! What are you planning on sewing in 2021?
