Today I’m celebrating 1 year of blogging and more than that I’m looking back over 12 months of makes, 12 months of supportive comments and 12 months of feeling connected to fellow sewers from around the world.
I appreciate all the lovely comments, thoughts, suggestions and advice I have received over the last 98 posts – I couldn’t have figured out some of the trickier techniques without you or enjoyed florals quite so much either!
I was quite surprised when I totted up my makes, totalling 59 for sewing and 9 for knitting. Broken down into categories here’s the pie chart for sewing:
And my favourite make so far?
Not only did I nail the fit of New Look 6000 pattern for this make but I also used many of the new sewing techniques I’d mastered since starting dressmaking (remember I used to only sew curtains and take up trousers) and it was the inspiration for the lined vent sew along.
And now for the bit you’ve been waiting for (or just scrolled over the previous waffle):
I named my dressmaker’s dummy the day hubby laughed that I’d set the height I thought I was instead of 15cm shorter but can you guess her name? Clue: She’s named after one half of a female duo of the 1991 film in which they drive off a cliff into the Grand Canyon.
One lucky recipient with receive a little parcel of crafty goodies including the Deer and Doe Sureau dress pattern, orange stripe washi tape and 8 gold-coloured buttons.
