So - how was 2013 for you . . . sewing wise?
January: 3 Sorbettos, and another 3 and the original - I wear most of them quite often, so they were a great make. Grey aztec two piece dress and a grey skirt, the grey skirt was only worn once, I love a flouncy hem but was not so keen on the proportions, so that was added to the donation pile. I also made 6 little washbags that were given as presents with little treats in, during the year. Total: 10 items of clothing and 6 washbags.
February: 2 skirts (1 grey, 1 tartan). Total: 2 items of clothing.
March & April: Nothing completed as we moved house. This is how my sewing room looked :(
You can see how it looks now, here.
May: Fushia cardi, 2 pairs of trousers, 2 pairs of pj trousers, 2 skirts, red flinen trousers. Total: 8 clothing items.
June: Tote bag, Pointer Sisters dress, 6 x placemats. Total: 1 clothing items, 7 crafty items.
July: 10 pillowcases, 2 shirts for Mr. SDSC, blue stripe shirt for me, black pants, grey pants and a pair of pj bottoms, Chartreuse dress and another Mr. SDSC shirt. Total: 7 items of clothing, 10 pillowcases.
August: 3 shirts for me. Total: 3 items of clothing.
September: 2 linen sorbettos, 2 box bags, 21 pillowcases (wow!!), linen skirt. OK, ok, so I am cheating a little here. I was actually in Australia and New Zealand for the month of September, so these items would have been completed in August - I just had the posts scheduled for September! Total: 3 clothing items, 23 crafty items.
October: 4 washbags, brown skirt and 2 tops, houndstooth skirt, and my Roksanda Dress. Total: 5 clothing items, 4 crafty items.
November: 6 pillowcases and earbud pouch & tater sacks. Total: 9 crafty items.
December: 5 ponte cardigans, lined wool trousers, houndstooth sorbetto and 7 short skirts. Total:
14 clothing items.
Total for the year: 53 clothing items, 59 crafty items (of which 39 were pillowcases). Wow. No wonder my wardrobe looks a bit full - and I am sure that there are a few pieces missing!
There are only a few items that I have not worn/have no intention of wearing - the chartreuse dress is one. I loved the idea of this, but I wasn't too enthralled with the finished item. I'll probably turn it into a skirt. What do I wear a lot? Well, all the trousers, the ponte cardigans from this month, most of the sorbettos, and a good number of the skirts. I have noticed that my skirt lengths have shortened, and my clothes are more fitted that those of last year and the year before.
All in all I am pleased with my sewing this year. I hope to continue in the same vein next year - so watch this space! How about you? How has your sewing been this year?
