Case in point? That lovely mustard print pencil skirt (it's not really a pencil on me) - it doesn't fit properly. It's way, way too big in the hips.
I'm not sure what I was doing this year instead of sewing. I know at least one skirt got made that never got blogged and I think that will make an appearance when I review Vacations 2012.
It wasn't until I attended the Fall Sewing Retreat that I really started sewing this year. I took 2 patterns to retreat with me, one woven and one knit. The patterns were traced, standard alterations made, and 'fake' fabric cut out. I came home from retreat with 3 dresses - not too bad for 3 days of work, right?
I then proceeded to make another woven dress for my birthday and a few more knit wrap dresses. I know how 3 dresses that fit me well, that I can slap on fabric, cut and sew and know (barring any fabric and pattern mishaps) I will have a winner.
With that end result - I'm very happy with the sewing output from 2012. To see the posts with finished garments in 2012 click the finished g12 label. Happy 2013 Sewing to all!
