what i did in 2012

so 2012 was actually a pretty big sewing year for me. i wasn’t going to bother with my final thoughts, but i realized i never posted official pics of my biggest project to date. namely, my sister’s wedding dress. in my defense, i only got the “official pics” back in november. (original posts: flower girl, wedding dress, bridesmaid)


if you’re interested, there are many more pics over on the photographer’s blog (post labeled tom + rebecca).

in 2012 i ventured into outerwear. i am so very pleased with my results on this front, and i’m itching to make more!

seersucker suit
knit blazer
jacket
winter coat
duffle coat


these were all my biggest projects. there is so much more that i made and loved in 2012, but going through and finding all the posts and links is a real pain in the buns (mega props to all you who did bother!) and i have real-time sewing to get to!

my only disappointment for the year was my inability to get all my projects onto the blog. i tried to count the number of things i made, but quit when i hit 45. i typically finish at least one item a week. problem is, my blogging (and picture taking) gets behind my sewing, then i lose interest in writing about it or plum forgot what amazing tidbit i wanted to share to begin with. i do try to make my posts worth your time reading, and i really appreciate the feedback. here’s to another great year of sewing!
