Can I do it?

I have a lot of projects in my sewing queue- way too many really. It's time to start sewing them and instead of hoarding patterns and fabric. I'm hoping to get these 8 done over the winter.

Vogue 8685

I have a very pretty dark blue knit with pink, purple and aqua flowers for this one. I'm definitely making the short, straight skirt and then I'll see what sleeve length I can eek out.

This one's going to be a brown herringbone wool. I'll be making the short version (which will probably be long on me!) with the slit at the neck.

Simplicity 2648

Black stretch wool for this one, with short sleeves and a V-neck.

Simplicity 2146

I chose a taupe wool that will show off the pleating details for this dress. I love the short-sleeved, V-neck with the inset pleats.

Burda 7531

This skirt will be a khaki corduroy, good for work and weekend. I love a good box pleat.

Butterick 5249

I have a black and gray pinstripe waiting for this pattern. I'm leaning towards the straight skirt with flounces at the knee, but I'll have to see how the pinstripes work for that.

Simplicity 3775

This easy knit dress is going to be a super-soft dark turquoise. I'm planning on making the long-sleeved, V-neck version.

New Look 6909

I'm planning on making the long sleeved version of this dress in brown wool.

If I get these all done, my work wardrobe will be all set. I already have two dresses made, but not finished, so if I get all these pieces finished, I will be awash in stylish work dresses!
