I know, you've all missed me. I admit, I'm lazy and usually just post in instagram these days. However today you're all in luck! I've written a 2014 wrap up post!
I won't add too much commentary, but will mention my favorite makes from each bunch. And yes, I've sewn a ton more this year than last, so I've categorized them. And yes a ton of these have not been blogged (and some aren't even pictured at all!)
Sewing for Me - Shirt-dress edition
I'm probably the proudest of these. I love shirt-dresses as wear each of them regularly. The Alder is probably my favorite and I have an second on my spring sewing list!
Sewing for me - Knits edition!
since getting a better machine and later a serger, knit projects are quickly becoming my favorites! So quick and easy wearing! I made a second Sewaholic Saltspring this year, but the Colette Monetta is becoming a favorite for dresses.
Knit shirts are sooo quick! My nani iro Lane Raglan is probably my fav or this bunch! My blue and green cardigan is sadly my least worn, a bit too small and a bit too bright!
Sewing for me - The Rest
I made a bunch of Wiksten Tanks this year. I can squeeze them out of a meter and they are so quick! Also made my first Jacket, thanks my pattern testing experience with the lovely ladies at Pattern Anthology! I plan to make a ton more blouse/woven tops in the near future, probably including more Wiksten and more Zippys!
Sewing for Boys - Knits Edition
This year I discovered the rabbit hole of Euro knits and custom knit fabric groups. I had no idea there were sooo many beautiful patterns out there and lets just say I've accumulated quite a collection. Good thing sewing up shirts, hoodies etc. from knits is so quick and fun!
Sewing for Boys - The Rest
I got to sew my first button down for my boys this year, and I hope to make more, nothing is cuter! I also hope to make them more pants, because... I didn't make them any this year, ha.
And last but not least...
Sewing for my Man
I finally got around to sewing him up a few things just before Christmas this year. And I plan more now that having a serger makes these projects quick sews! Too bad their size means they still take forever to cut!
Plans for Next Year - I'll keep it simple again
1.) SEW FROM MY STASH. I said this last year, but my stash is significantly larger, so seems more reasonable. But that said, I looove supporting my local store Fabrications and the several awesome online Canadian stores.... so I suspect I'll still buy a bit.
2.) Make more things for my Man.
3.) Make more basics (ha) I looove pattern, but I'm hoping to make me and my boys wardrobe almost entirely handmade by adding a few more basics!
So how was your 2014, and whats up for 2015?
