Project for 2016

I won't do a review of what I've done in 2015  , I prefer to focus on what's coming.There is a few thing I wish to do.My daughter will start the daycare next month.Slowly I will have time alone and I intend to put a lot of it in sewing.Here are my plan:

1- Chairs covers
 I will buy 2 chairs soon to complete the set of 4 we have.With kids you can easily imagine how stain they are .To cover them will help changing the look of the dining room.

2- spring - autumn 1920 coat
I still have 1 fabric I want for sure to use , just need to buy the lining.I will use this pattern as a base but I already know I will modify it.

 McCall pattern no 7259 from the archive collection.

3- Clothing for my kids
I have a few fabric for child , I think it's overdue to use it.I have some lovely fabric with flower that will make cute little dress.

4-Finishing the restoration of my hat
I buy a hat a few years now.Not proud to say I didn't finish the cleaning-restoration of it.It's a 1960 hat that imitate a style of the 30's.It's almost done .
Henry Pollack hat from somewhere in the 60's .Found on Etsy from The hat museum.

5-Transforming  a plain black hat
I do receive a plain black polyester hat from Walmart.I want to pimp it to something that will look more 1920 to fit with the coat.I'm pretty sure I already have everything I need for what I have in mind.

That's all for now.I don't want to make too much project because I know I will be disappointed .I have plenty of thing in mind but I start first and see later what is possible.
