This year, I finally found my groove with sewing. I completed more sewing projects this year than I have in a year's time previously. And, I WEAR the garments I made for myself, which, in my mind, makes my year in sewing an enormous success!
In a word, 2013 was about SEPARATES. I tackled my fear of setting sleeves. I acknowledged that skirts, rather than dresses, are my best friend when it comes to figure flattery. And, I tried to be honest with myself during pattern selection in terms of practical wearability.
Not all my sewing was practical. I cut-loose and had some fun. I sewed along with three incredible bloggers and their readers. I was also able to get more involved with the online sewing community during two meetups with some lovely Chicagoland sewers and the infamous Lauren of Lladybird.
And, by far, my favorite sewing endeavor of 2013, is the mini wardrobe I made and wore on vacation.
I have good feelings about the projects and productivity 2014 will bring. I look forward to being inspired by you all in the new year. Thank you for the time you take to visit with me on my little corner of the internet. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'll see you in 2014!
