My blog is 3 years old today – I just happened to stumble upon that fact this week. I’m not very sentimental, and on top of that I’m forgetful. (As evidenced by the fact that hubs and I both forgot our last wedding anniversary. At least when you both forget no one’s in trouble. In our defense, life was sort of busy around that time…)
But since I had the realization, might as well reminisce…
Well, my sewing skills have certainly come a LONG way in 3 years. Of all the projects I’ve posted on this blog, there are only a fraction of self-made items that are in regular wardrobe rotation. The nice thing, though, is the number of kept items increased as my skills increased. It’s nice to be able to look back and see I’m actually getting better!
Once you get into 2012, there are a lot more pieces that are still in my closet. Here are just a few since then that are some of my favorites:
– Dorothy dress (Simplicity 2362)
– Pintuck dress (Simplicity 2365)
– Mixed pattern shirt (Simplicity 1884)
– First Jacket (Simplicity 2443)
– In Love Dress (Simplicity 1877)
– Tangram skirt (Chic & Simple Sewing Wrap skirt)
And more in the works!
I enjoy blogging – it’s fun and relaxing to write about something I love. Thanks for following as I flounder and flourish!
