My sewing has definitely slowed down a bit since having a baby, but I do have some plans for the autumn. I need some more long sleeved tops, as does Matt so I’ve gone back to my favorite cotton spandex from Girl Charlee in Sage Green and Dusty Masala.
With regards to my make 9 plans its going pretty well and I’ve decided on a final couple of things to add as my wildcards. I’m going to sew the Poppy and Jazz Dandelion Dungarees for Toby (and if I get time a co-ordinating Honeydew Hoodie), and I could do with another wintery Archer shirt for which I have a perfect cream speckled brushed cotton from Fabworks last year. So my make 9 now looks like this:
6 made (some several times), 1 in progress, and 2 yet to start. I feel like that is not too bad. The Taylor Trench and Archer shirt are pretty involved makes, though I have made the Archer multiple times before. The dandelion dungarees should be super easy though. I have some cute Fabworks elephant fabric which might work.
If I get time, I could also do with another Oslo cardigan. The one that I made at the start of the year is in constant rotation, and I’ve been discovering that cardigans are much more convenient to breastfeed in than jumpers, and its getting too cold to be without layers.

Do you have any tops that you would recommend for breastfeeding??
The other thing that I wear that works well are wrap dresses/tops. Also cardigans are easier than jumpers!
I love my Megan Nielsen Amber tops. I’ve made several already and a dress version and they are my favourite options. I’ve just hacked a version with the Tilly and the buttons Agnes to make a more fitted layering version. There’s also a tutorial on SoZo what do you know that I’m keen to try out which might be useful. Otherwise I wear quite a few nursing Camis under things that button down the front like shirtdresses (I’ve just rediscovered a darling ranges dress which is good)
