Inspiration: the Tried and True Social Sew

Hello! This "inspo" post is a bit tricky... this month's Social Sew theme is Tried and True, and your tried and trues will be different than mine! I do hope I'll manage to give you some ideas, though. 

Remember, my main goal is designing the Social Sew link-up was to make the theme narrow enough that someone unsure of what to make next could find some guidance, but broad enough that someone with sewing plans could find a way to make their pieces fit. If you're a bit stumped on what to make for this month's theme let me suggest...

Another version of that one dress you reach for every occasion: Whether it be a little black dress, a mod mini, or a slinky maxi, if you have a dress you wear over and over, why not give it a rest and whip up something similar, but slightly different.

A new pattern that could be your next tried and true love: As soon as I saw the Ogden Cami, I knew it was going to get tons of use in my closet--if it fit! If there's a pattern (new or new-to-you) that seems like it could be the pattern, try it out or perfect the fit for future t'n't usage. (Spoiler alert: the Ogden? It fits and I'm in love.)

A silhouette you love in a new fabric: Love the Archer but already have a closet full of flannels? I have seen some lovely chiffon versions! How about a woven wrap dress? A sheer teeshirt?

This is a Social Sew month where I don't know what I'm making--usually I have some sort of idea since I use this as a personal sewing challenge, as well as a way to encourage social sewing! I have a few things I'm thinking about, but it's so hard to choose when you're choosing from a bunch of things you love! I think I'll be drawing my inspiration from you, this time!


ps: i also have a fall inspo post coming up as well... if i can ever figure out how to use photoshop!
