My top 5 of 2012
Here are my five favourite selfish sewing/machine knitting makes of 2012. Please keep in mind I’ve only included blogged items (four months worth of things!).
Number 1 – Doublet Redux. I wear this ALL the time. It just seems to go with everything in my wardrobe. I even wore it over a RTW silk shift dress to a fancy dinner with some girl friends before Christmas.
Number 2 – Vintage Simplicity 5547. This top has been on high rotation. The style, fabric (colours and print) and cut fit so well with my life. Must make another one soon.
Number 5 – Mustard Maize Linen Lily Dress. This dress was the first thing I made myself that I was REALLY proud of. It the extra jolt I needed to start this blog. Although only worn twice, I have a great fondness for it. A sleeveless version should appear early in 2013! I do feel a 2013 ‘to do’ list won’t be far away.
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, words of wisdom and honest feedback. I love our supportive online sewing community and I feel blessed to be part of it.
