My Wardrobe Plan – How did I do?
Has it been a year already! OMG I can’t believe it. But I have a lot to be thankful for. It’s been a phenomenal year for me! I’ve gotten a lot done and proud to say that I’ve achieved my goal of ONE Garment-a-month. Not only that, a Sew-along started on PR about this generated a lot of interest and many of you joined me in this motivating me even more.
So what did I sew?

This is the most expensive yardage I’ve ever sewn with. Its Rayon/Silk Jersey I bought at Sawyer Brook at the PR Day a few months ago. The good thing is that I only had to buy a yard and I squeezed a 3/4 length top from it. Not bad right? It feels like butter against the skin! I used clear elastic in the neck binding all the way around so it doesnt sag. LOVE IT!
So 7 out of the 12 garments I made this year were NEW. Not bad if I may say so. I am actually quite pleased with my progress this year. My goal for this year is to try one NEW pattern each month.
Happened on your pictures and blog by happy accident ( looking for pictures of that coat you made)- your choice of prints is so good, has such wonderful design and color, so much better than the pattern illustrations – and everything looks wonderful. What fine work. I think my favorites are that last 3/4 sleeve Jalie sweetheart top in the fine fabric, the simple but glorious newlook skirt, and the Burda misty green shirt.
