(Above picture is my pile of fabric that is feeling abandoned and unloved!)

I decided to start sewing as an extension of my love for crafting. I enjoy making things that are unique; such as jewellery, fabric flowers, stationery and clothes was another hobby to take up.

I started sewing properly last year by making skirts and dresses which I loved and got wear out of. Fast forward a year and I’m now in a job in an industrial environment where skirts and dresses don’t fit. Everyday I find myself putting on jeans and a t-shirt which doesn’t inspire me to get sewing. I know I could sew my own version of this but I feel that is a bit advanced for my newbie skills right now, jeans and jersey isn’t something I’ve ventured into.

I bought the ultimate trousers pattern but for some reason I find myself intimidated by sewing trousers having not sewn since February. So I now find myself in an odd limbo; not sewing skirts and dresses as I have no real opportunity to wear them and feeling uninspired by the types of garments I would get wear out of.

Can anyone recommend some simple sewing patterns that will help me get out of this rut?
