Lots of craft bloggers are reviewing their year with the hits and misses, here’s mine.
2013 has been one of my most productive years for a long time, there has been…
3 pairs of PJ bottoms
1 pair of boys trousers
4 pairs of socks
1 upcycled adults skirt into a girls dress
18 projects in total, 1.5 a month.
The top hits are the two dresses.
Butterick B5600 and the Kitschy Coo girl skater dress. The denim Butterick dress has had a lot of wear over the summer and is really comfortable. I’m sure there’ll be another version next year. As for the girl skater dress it is one of her favourites.
The Burdastyle 7136 denim shirt was also a success. I wasn’t expecting it to turn out so well but I love it.
I’ve also re-discovered knitting, just socks so far and I was really pleased with my first pair.
And finally I got over the fear of sewing with knits and made up the Maria of Denmark Kimono Tee which gave me the confidence to make up the skater dress.
It’s not finished, not sure it’ll ever be finished so the Sewaholic Robson Trench will have to be put down as a miss. It’s not past saving, I put a lot of work into those bound button holes so in the new year I will take another look.
Overall not bad really!
See you in 2014
