Well, we have made it to the end of 2016 and, boy, what a year! Many highs, a few lows, and one big life change would sum up my past 12 months. While I haven’t been able to post as much as I would like over the past few weeks, I plan on getting right back on track for the new year!
One of my most favorite posts to do at this time of year is the review of my favorite sewing projects. I love looking back and seeing all the various creations I have made, and hopefully I will be able to notice a few improvements on my technique as well!
So let’s take a look at a few of my favorite projects from this year!!
I loved creating this 1943 ruffled blouse! Click this link to see how to make one of your own!
This 1930’s beach wrap was created from scrap fabric which I got for $1 a yard!! Love those kinds of savings!
One major accomplishment this year was the publication of my very own vintage sewing pattern book! Click HERE for more information!
I designed this 1940’s salmon pink suit by taking inspiration from three separate designs!
I returned to my roots, and began sewing Regency era gowns again and had great fun photographing them out in nature!
…and in lovely historic settings.
Now that my life has return to a more normal status, I can’t wait to get back into my sewing room and starting whipping up more creations! My 2017 plans include some 1700’s clothing, 1910’s, and everything in between! 🙂
I wish you all a very happy and healthy end to 2016 and beginning of 2017!
Oh and that big life change I mentioned earlier???….it will be making it’s sweet debut June 2017!! 🙂
