My top 5 of 2012

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 1Doublet 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.


Numbers 3 & 4 – These two new additions that haven’t had a chance to be worn much, but I foresee that they will be active members of my wardrobe!  My Scout Woven Tee and my Japanese Smock Blouse.

Number 5Mustard 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.
