New projects for the new year

This past holiday season, I used up some of my fabric I had for a lot of, well all of my Christmas presents.  But I'm sure like most of you, I still have a TON of fabric left.  Motivated by starting the new year by cleaning out my apartment I cut out 5 new patterns.  I have already started sewing one. My goal is to sew one a week, so by the end of January I'll have some new digs to wear!

McCalls M5661
I am doing view B with view C sleeves.  I will be making some adjustments on the neckline and sleeves. I couldn't get the picture of the fabric right, but it's silk and feels gorgeous.

The plaid will be the skirt and the mustard will be the bodice & sleeves.  I haven't decided if I am going to make the sash in the plaid or solid.  
Simplicity 2406
I absolutely love this dress! This  will be my second time making this dress, and since it's a little fashion forward, I don't want two of the exactly the same, so I am going to change it up a bit. 
New Look 6910
Sheath dresses will always be a classic silhouette than almost anyone can wear, I probably own at least 5!   I am making view B out of this geometric silk.
