So with the year coming to a close I have been reflecting on my newest pursuit and the second love of my life – sewing.
This year I’ve completed 17 items of clothing and one line of bunting. I also have two genuine WIPs and two truly genuine UFOs (they haven’t had any progress on them in five and two months respectively). And without further ado here’s what I’ve made: Nine dresses, four skirts, three tops and a line of bunting
This year has been a good year for my relationship with sewing. I’ve started working full time, which has had the reverse effect to what everyone says will happen when you start full time work – I have far more spare time now than I did as a student.
In 2012 I’ve had lots of fun re-learning to sew. I’ve learnt tonnes of new terms selvage, bias binding and kimono sleeves and I’ve even learnt how to insert an invisible zipper. Being part of the blogging community has been immensely helpful with this learning too. There’s such a wealth of knowledge out there and it’s been great to be able to access all that information and experience. The sewing bloggers out there have also been incredibly supportive and encouraging – thank you!
So now I, as I look into the next year I’m thinking about sewing goals for the new year. What are your New Years Sewing Goals?
