My 5 Patterns To Sew in 2015

Today I thought I'd share with you the main projects on my to-sew list for 2015, and also my pattern wish list since I don't own most of these yet..! Most have been on it for quite a while, but the Rigel Bomber Jacket is a new addition after reading about the 'sew together' over on Ginger Makes.

1. Clover Trousers - Colette Patterns

This has been on my list for ages. If I can get the fit right (a pretty big if..), this could be a great pattern for a wardrobe staple.
2. Mimi Blouse - Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes
I think 2015 may be the year of the blouse for me...I make loads of dresses, but I could really do with more blouses and tops to wear with jeans or skirts. This is the only pattern I've not used yet in Tilly's book, and given how much I love the others I'm sure I'll be making several Mimi's.
3. Chardon Skirt - Deer&Doe
I saw this in a lovely plum colour on a blog somewhere and had to find out where the pattern was from. I would just love to fill my wardrobe with one of these in every colour of the rainbow.
4. 1940's Tea Dress - Sew Over It Pattern
I have a piano pupil who lives just around the corner from the Clapham Sew Over It, so I walk past its beautiful window displays every week. I've been drooling over a stunning navy version of this tea dress in the window for weeks so I've just got to make one for myself.
5. Rigel Bomber Jacket - Papercut Patterns
I never knew I wanted a bomber jacket until I saw this on Ginger Makes' blog. I'm not sure how brave I'll be with pattern choice, or if I'm really cool enough to pull this one off... but we'll find out I guess!
What's on your to-sew list for 2015?
