Ok, I didn't make as many projects as I planned to, but the ones I did finish I'm quite proud of. So here's the round up, only 7 projects in 12 months. My personal goal was to make 12 in 12, but oh well....
Built By Wendy's Sew U black corduroy skirt
A perfect basic. This pattern will be used again definitely. I also have a stretch gabardine earmarked for the jeans in this book too.
New Look 6838 black interlock tee
Ok, this pattern did not turn out to be the TNT I was hoping for. I have a Burda T pattern coming that I hope will be the one.
Butterick 4948 purple corduroy 1970's jumper
Love this SO much! It also gets compliments every time I wear it. Turns out when people love purple, they really LOVE purple!
Sew Stylish "Good n' Plenty" dress
A simple pattern drafting exercise created a dress that I love. This one will be made again too.
DIY orange grosgrain ribbon bow belt
Too cute and too easy. I have two more to make for my spring and summer dresses.
Butterick 5429 "Good n' Plenty" twist top
Though the pattern illustration was deceptive about the fit I will alter the pattern and make this again. I want to move away from plain crew-neck t-shirts.
Butterick 2564 red vintage overblouseI finally finished this fourth item from last year's Pattern Review contest entry. Will make this one again too, but with one structural change.
Though these were the only finished projects for 2010, they were not the only sewing that I did. There were alterations to existing garments, draft muslins for future projects, and most recently, work on the Colette Oolong dress. I hoped to finish it before the New Year, but I had to face the fact that I'm not the same size I was and am now taking a few seams out. My birthday is in early February so that is now the goal I set for this dress.
Goals for 2011:
