The end of the year is always a great time to reflect, so I'm thinking back to all of my sewing projects from the year today. :-)
2015 was a very full year, even though it wasn't super full of personal sewing projects... I always have something in the works, but sometimes they take a little longer to finish than others. ;-)
My non-1950s attire for the year. ;-) I felt like I did a lot more 1930s sewing this year, and I guess I did... they just haven't been blogged about yet. :-P The 1940s dress might not count totally, but it was an extensive remake!
My favorite and most common thing to make are 1950s dresses, so I was shocked that I only had 3(blogged about)! Like I said, it was a slow year on the sewing front...
My biggest change this year was delving into more blouses and skirts! This was partially to fill a void in my wardrobe, but mainly to creatively use up fabric remnants. :-) All of the blouses pictured were remnants from other projects.
Kathryn also was feeling the separates memo, too. ;-) Although this does put into perspective how very many more outfits she really should possess, considering how amazing all the photos were this year! (sorry dear! 2016 will be better, I promise. :-))
Not included in this post, but coming eventually:
-1950s novelty print dress
-two 1950s blouses
-1950s plaid skirt
-1950s twill skirt
-1930s rayon dress
-1930s evening gown
I felt like I finally got my wardrobe up to "more than necessary" on the quantity front, so I guess that's why I decided to sell several of my dresses on Etsy. ;-) More will be coming shortly to the shop, so stay tuned! I guess I just love keeping my wardrobe at the bare minimum level. :-P
Oh, and 2015 marked the end of one of my most faithful dresses- my fruit dress. She was my favorite for years, was my trusted "travel dress" (that outfit never set off any alarms and always garnered raving compliments in airports- always a good thing ;-)) and eventually she just gave out. :-( Anyone else experience wardrobe casualties this year? I'm torn between trying to replicate it and just moving onto something else....
Well, that's it for my recap! I rather enjoyed putting it together; it was fun to see the common themes that ran throughout the year! I feel like I'm also more aware of the gaps in my wardrobe and I'm looking forward to seeing where I go in 2016. :-) Thanks for following my ventures for another year!
