Looking back over my makes this year, I do have some favourites. And there are a few things I just haven't worn.
Part of the reasons behind most of the unworn items is that I have to go back and fix something, usually something pretty minor -- but I find it so hard to "mend" something once I'm done. Sigh. There are a couple of items that I don't wear, though, because they did not turn out well -- the fit is off or I just don't like them. I've passed a couple of them on, but I still have hopes I can fix a couple of them and start wearing them.
Here is my yearly roundup --
|My Floral dresses|
The Rest of the Dresses
|The odd ones out!|
Once again, I've mainly sewn dresses. And they make up most of my favourites too. This year found me sewing a lot of florals, with a few other patterns making an appearance -- not too many solids in my wardrobe! I really like most of my makes this year.
I find that making dresses is still my favourite thing to do, and when I tell myself that I should make something else for a while, I stall out on sewing altogether. So I need to let myself do what I love :)
Here's to another year of wonderful sewing!
You have made some lovely garments this year Melwyk and I agree with making what you love. This is supposed to be an enjoyable hobby...not work, after all.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed! Just like my reading, I like to sew according to mood :)Delete
Even if you had purchased everything, there would be a few pieces that you would not have worn. And maybe more than a few!ReplyDelete
My favorites are that little blue dress, and the cardigan with the red roses. Here's to a new year of great makes. Happy New Year!!!
That's very true, Rhonda. I have some RTW to give away that I have never worn :( At least in my own sewing that happens much, much less often!Delete
The red rose cardigan is actually a fooler top, by Kwik Sew -- lots of fun to wear because of that. It's such a nice rayon challis it is also very comfortable.
Thanks for your compliments and Happy New Year to you too!
