The pattern I am thinking of hacking is in Tully and the buttons stretch book, it’s the Stella hoodie but I am not putting the hood on and depending on the fabric will do a high ish neck.  Has anyone done this pattern if so is it any good.?
Will also do some sort of trousers as part of the set of 3 and then ??

I've had these fabrics marinating while I've been unable to do any sewing.  I will use 3 of the 4 for the 3 piece - it depends on time and how the mood takes me.
The black is a medium weight stretch denim and I will inevitably use my much tweaked jeans pattern.  The print is a stretch cotton jersey.  I will use the Grainline Lark Tee, long sleeved.  I might go off piste and do a front placket just to ring the changes as I have some lilac jersey somewhere.  The plain lilac is a cotton sweatshirt fabric possibly destined to become a cardigan or sweatshirt.  The grey on the left is the leftover Donegal Tweed from when I made a jacket about 3 years ago.  I've been thinking gilet for some time so this may be the opportunity to do it.

Those fabrics look good together @Ploshkin. I like the effect.
I also like the colours of @Goth Gardiner.

Nice set of fabrics @Ploshkin . I too marinate fabrics - sometimes for years.  :S

I've been hunting for free smart top/shirt patterns for this and I've found a few but the best need linen and I'm out. Will keep the hunt going.

The jumper I'm planning is the Style Arc Kennedy but I'm having problems picking fabric. Without being able to feel sweatshirting fabric I'm being very dither. I want something that looks almost woven texture with a fleece back. But it's tricky. Stone colour midweight would work. But it's getting the right backside!

@Syrinx   I’ve just bought some cotton jersey fleece backed from Croft Mill to make a top, it wasn’t the cheapest but I think it will make up well.

Saw GS's last night and took their measurements
GS1 asked me why and I told him I was going to make their Christmas pj's, not buying them from Tesco!
His little face lit up with excitement.

As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

Awwwwwww! @Bumblebuncher how adorable was that! I still remember Grandma making my sister and I matching flannel nightgowns when I was 11 and she was 7. Dad was stingy with the heat back then so we LOVED them -especially since the quality of the flannel was devine!

@Esme866 Thank you!  This has just jogged my memory, I saw some lovely wynceyette while browsing last week, and as usual, I've forgotten where.

I'll have to go through my history...

I would love some snuggly, old fashioned nighties and pyjamas...

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Really enjoyed reading through these plans.

I can barely keep three ideas in my head at once so the thought of planning and making three matching garments is beyond me!  :laughing:

Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress.  :)

Me too I am approaching it one garment at a time, if they match   :loveit:  If not  :(

I have some ideas but I'll need to get cracking. I think it's going to be waterfall jacket, blouse and trousers. I've started the blouse but it is a plaid fabric with some, ahem, challenging pattern matching so I'll just have to see whether it ends up looking ok or whether it's a dog's breakfast! If it's the latter I'll do a quick change to a plain fabric. Hope to post some pleminary pictures on Monday.

@Lemon Syllabub , @Celia , I'm not sure they need to match, as such, just three things that can be worn together. If your choice is an orange leotard, a leopard print hat and a giant coatigan with llamas all over it, who's to say you're wrong  ;)  Needs to be suitable for Autumn / Winter unless you're in the Southern hemisphere then it's Spring / Summer.

Coatigan with llamas @Flobear ? Now you're talking!
