Currently working on a quilt for my nephew
I've always been really impressed by the year end wrap ups that other bloggers do. It's a great way to take stock of what you've sewn for the year and take a look at the wins and the fails. I made 57 items in 2012 which breaks down like this:
31 items for me
2 items for Wade
19 items for the girls, and
5 'other' items (predominantly home sewing)
My favourite and most worn item this year would be my slim fit black pants, they're worn at least once a week and you'll be seeing another pair soon.
My biggest fail is the mission maxi with the godet. I took it off after taking the photos and it never even made it into the wardrobe. I thought it would be fabulous but I don't like the way it looks on me and the godet doesn't work with my lifestyle.
My biggest surprise for 2012 was this dress. I started off feeling very 'meh' about it and yet throughout winter I reached for it regularly and felt good wearing it.
2013 will see me sewing from my stash. I have a list of over 20 items that I'd like to make and I have the fabric for all of them (if I get organised I'll put them on a tab at the top). I'm also going to participate in Cloth Habit's bra sew-along. All the fabulous bras made by other bloggers has convinced me to give it a go (that and $80 price tag on my favourite bra!).
Thank you all for your kind words and support in 2012, wishing you all a happy and healthy 2013 with plenty of awesome sewing.
