The #2018makenine hashtag has become a bit of a thing in the crafting world in recent years (obviously the prefix changes each time). It started with Dressmaking but in more recent years has been used for knitting, crochet and crafts in general.

Most often seen on instagram, makers share 9 items they want t make in the coming year and set themselves the challenge of completing them all.

So here is my dressmaking make nine for 2018.

This year I realised that I didn’t wear many handmade garments on a day to day basis during the winter and Autumn, this is mainly because I tended to make cotton dresses or Cami style tops and that wasn’t particularly practical all year round.

So this year its all about super simple separates, lots of jersey and a random posh jumpsuit that I quite fancy!

I’ve already got a head start on my plans with most of these patterns printed off and ready for a mammoth fabric buying trip to the Goldhawk Road tomorrow.

With a few days off between Christmas and New year and a fairly slow start to the New Year I should make some headway on this list fairly quickly.
