2010 -- A Year in Review!

3:30 PM

This has been a pretty good year for sewing for me. Even though I didn't do a lot of things sewing-wise, I'm happy with what I did!

Favorite Garments of the year!
I couldn't pick just one!

Vogue 1154 - I love the construction process on this one!

Vogue 1174 - This dress translated really well to a casual sundress with flat sandals!

Major sewing-related purchase...

I bought my dress form that I'm completely in love with!

I also attended...

"The Original Sewing & Quilt Expo" in Atlanta and "The Golden Age of Couture" exhibit in Nashville.

What I didn't do that I wanted to do in 2010:
  • I didn't get around to making another Chanel jacket.
  • I didn't make a coat.
  • I didn't finish the tailored jacket that I'm currently working on.
  • I didn't make anything with welts or bound buttonholes.
  • I didn't drape a single thing.
  • I didn't make anything from Burda. Can't bring myself to trace a pattern when there are perfectly good ones that I can just cut out.
  • I didn't make anything from Marfy.
Here's hoping that 2011 brings much more fabulous sewing!

  1. New to your blog. Wasn't sure if I should really look because I thought it was just about sewing. The more I looked however I noticed not only can you sew, but you've got such a great since of style as well. But the reason I'm writing this post is not only to tell you the above but to ask you how you created those waves in your hair? Take care and God Bless u!!!
