Which means it's time to see what's been popular on the old blog this year!
Lace and gingham dress - not much to say I still love it! And I get quite a few compliments about it!!
This is a weird one? It's currently sat in a draw waiting for next Valentine's Day! It's cute I just don't wear it much!
My mums Mimi blouse!! She made the top five! She's gonna pee her pants! Anyway I guess she likes it? Another has been requested so that's a good sign? I don't think she wears it day to day though just saves it for vintage occasions.
My first ever trousers! I'm surprised they made the top five , mainly because they ended up in the bin! Wrong fabric , wrong colour, wrong style, but a lot of lessons learned !
Skyline lilou! This is the dress that received the most hits!! And I still love it, and I always feel fabulous in it!!!
And so on to resolutions!!
1: more sewing - pretty standard!
2: better sewing - I want to improve my finishing and techniques!
3: better fabric choices - I'm trying to make sure everything I make is something I'll actually wear, which means I have to really look at what clothes and colours I actually wear.
4: do more knitting - in particular finish my miette cardigan and start more clothing type knits.
5: keep writing tutorials - I love writing down my ideas and I'm having a lot of fun experimenting
6: bake more - I have aims for once a week but I'll probably forget!
7: make trousers - actual proper trousers that I can wear.
8: continue to eat healthy - I've made a really effort this year to find balance with my diet and I'm feeling better because of it. In fact we have a take away a few weeks ago and the grease in it made me feel really rotten.
9: buy and waste less - just in general really with both clothes and food. We don't throw much away but I'd really like to minimise my impact of the planet.
10: make another quilt. I LOVE quilting!!! Ideally I'd love to have a quilt in every room !!! And I'd like to keep making them for babies that are about to be born!!
So yeah that's my year sorted!!!
In other news!
