I can’t believe that 2012 is coming to a close and that I have been blogging for almost a full year. It’s fun to look back and see all of the friends I have made, clothing I have made, and things I have learned. It really has been a great year.
Here are my top 5 sewn items this year. It was hard to choose.
#1 – Darling Ranges Dress with a bow – This might be my very favorite item in my closet. It was the first time I had sewn with pure silk – there was a learning curve to be sure. I always get compliments on it when I wear it. It’s just the perfect blend of feminine, vintage and modern for me.
# 2 – McCalls 6044 Men’s Dress Shirt – It has been very satisfying to finally sew something for my husband. He still wears this top all of the time and I love how professional it turned out. I should really make him another one.
#3 – Tie Dye Mission Maxi Dress – This was a fun one from beginning to end. It was cool to feel like I truly had something one of a kind because I not only sewed the garment, but also created the fabric pattern. Plus it’s SO comfy.
#4 – Black and Yellow Vintage Blazer – This has been a cool project for me because I made it from a vintage jacket that I took apart and turned into a pattern. This has also been a staple in my wardrobe while I’ve been pregnant.
#5 – Megan Nielsen’s Ruched Maternity Skirt – LOVE this skirt. It’s pretty hard to feel sexy when you are 9 months pregnant, but this skirt makes me feel sexy. I love showing off that baby bump instead of hiding it. This has been a big hit in my pregnant wardrobe.
