Most seasons I post a list...things that I've seen either on the internet, in the stores or in the magazines...of things I would like to sew. Most seasons I make one or two things from my list. The other day when I was reviewing my list for spring which I expanded to include summer, I was truly amazed at how many pieces I've completed.
Let's review the list:
1. A floral skirt - Done!
I used a floral linen to make the skirt just last month:
2. An architectural dress - Done!
Even though this dress is finished...I can honestly say that I will never wear it out of the house and really want to tear it apart and start over. So even though it's done, I'm moving this to my fall/winter list because I just have to have this dress and not the faux version either!
3. A Liberty of London Sheath Dress - Done!
After wearing the dress I finished just this past weekend, I can say the dress was a success!
4. A nude or bone pair of shoes - yes, times 3!
Here's a pic of the latest pair to join the other 2 pairs.
5. Blue and black pieces - Done!
These pieces were included in my SWAP and featured my favorite dress...
6. A spring coat - not even attempted
Well the boat has sailed on this piece but there is always next year!
7. A vintage dress - on list for Sewcation
Yes, I'm still intrigued by this dress and wondering if I can make it work for my body. So it is on my to be sewn list for the Sewcation. Which I'm starting to think will have a vintage theme...but we shall see. I could change my mind again between now and then!
8. The border print collection - in the list still
I have amassed a considerable amount of border print fabrics this year. My plan is to use one of them to make my version of B5147...and since I can't let Elizabeth down...I think/hope/pray that this will be one of my August dresses.
I'm pretty thrilled that I've made four of the things on my list and bought the fifth one. I know that at least two more items will make it off the list and into my closet. But this is the first time in a long time that I've made a list and then stuck to it. I must have really wanted those garments! *LOL*
...as always, more later!
