The Sewing Year That Was...

Tuesday, December 31, 2013
It's always nice to look back on the sewing year that was and know that I actually made rather a few things that I wear on almost a weekly basis. I made 16 things all up including one fancy dress, my Christmas dress, and the rest fit relatively well into my already existing wardrobe of Me Mades, Vintage and High Street.

This year I focussed much more on using patterns I already owned from my vintage pattern stash, which meant that I didn't buy a single vintage dress this entire year! (That little fact actually hadn't even occurred to me until just now). I also have several makes that are finished that I've not yet managed to blog and that never happens!

I do have one major sewing goal for 2014 that I will reveal in the New Year, but for now, here is a selection of my Sewing Year that was... for the full list, head on over to my Finished Projects page.

These are illustrated with some of the outtakes from each photo shoot because I'm sure I'm not the only one who has to take several (hundred) photos only to end up liking 2 or 3!! Unfortunately, as I had switched computers throughout the year though, the rest of my photos are in a box somewhere in the other room, but I hope you'll enjoy the ones I could find...

I got photo-bombed by a dog, did something weird with my hands and laughed a lot!

I make that face a lot it seems, my version of Blue Steel? Hands doing weird things again...

Yep, there it is, Blue Steel. Trying to twirl and showing an eyeful instead (getting a good twirl picture is hard!).

Hair in my face. More hair in my face. A variation of Blue Steel.

I think I was telling David that he had taken enough photos here. Being silly on one leg.

Blue Steel and, um...

Hope you all have a fabulous time seeing in the new year, and I'll catch you all in 2014!

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
