New Projects On The Cutting Table

Here is a preview of my upcoming projects:

B5718, already cut and ready to go. I'm making the short version (red jacket) I think it's view B. Vogue 1100, there is enough of each of these fabrics to make two full suits, one houndstooth and one in the solid. But I thought about the jacket in the houndstooth and the skirt in the solid. What do you think?

Vogue 8567, the skirt & jacket. Simplicity 2636, the top with sleeves. I have several pieces of black fabric to make the pants.

I've wanted this coat for quite some time in this fabric. New Look 6736

This purple faille from will be a jacket and skirt, Butterick 5294

And this one will be OOP Butterick 3638, a royal blue for the jacket and a solid black skirt (fabric underneath the pattern).

I know these two fabrics look almost the same shade on my monitor, but here they are side by side.

I am not sure what I want from the last two pieces. I love animal prints. It could be a lightweight coat for Spring. When I first pulled it out, I thought about a skirt.
I think when this one was originally purchased, I wanted it to be a skirt, long and breezy. It is a satiny, crinkle type with strands of ribbon and specks of clear sequins sewn throughout. I may have to come back to this one later.

Looks like you have a lot great projects on your cutting table. Re: V1100: I agree that the jacket in the houndstooth and skirt in the solid would look fabulous!

Your projects look very appealing. Will be checking back to see your progress.

Lovely line-up of patterns & fabric. The jacket would look great in the houndstooth & the skirt in the solid fabric. I have NL 6738 and looking forward to your version.

Thanks for the lovely compliment on my jacket.
