At the start of 2014, I set a goal for myself: sew at least one garment per month for the year. It was a low bar, but it wasn’t so much about sewing 12 more garments for my wardrobe as just creating on a regular basis, even when life got busy. Here’s the big round-up of all my garments this year (click on the photo to go to the blog post):
That’s about 39 garments (conservatively–I didn’t count all the undies and random tee shirts that made and didn’t get posted):
- 11 tops
- 11 dresses
- 5 pairs of pants
- 1 pair of shorts
- 6 skirts
- several pairs of underwear and a camisole
- 2 jackets
So what’s up for this coming year? I am not taking any patternmaking/ sewing classes this year (again, they don’t fit into my work schedule), but I’d like to draft a few new garments, focusing on blouses. And I’ve got heaps and heaps of fabric, recently purchased, that are earmarked for various garments. But the one thing I MUST do this year is sew a quilt for my littlest man. That is my primary goal for 2015.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing my sewing adventures this year! Have a happy and safe New Year!
