2014: A Year in Review

It the last day of the year and I thought it would be fun to look back and see what I've accomplished this year.

I kept track of every single thing I sewed in 2014 by writing it down in a notebook. I have not blogged it all, but that's okay. My total was 56 garments. Out of those, 36 were made for me. I did a lot of sewing for my little sisters and some for my mom this year too. 

All of the patterns I sewed were from Indie designers. I did not sew anything from the big pattern companies such as Simplicity or McCalls. I really prefer Indie patterns because they are just really thought out and have excellent instructions. The designers are always more than willing to help you out too! 

Now, here are my top 5 favorites from 2014:

Pineapple Lady Skater

Hello! I have a new Lady Skater dress to show you made in pineapple knit fabric! I have been eyeing this pineapple fabric from Girl Charlee for a long time. My mom surprised me with it after I finished all my finals a few weeks ago and I decided to make a new dress for myself.

I am so happy that this semester is finally over!!

Hello friends! It is the most wonderful time of the year!!! I am finally finished with my seventh semester of college and will be heading home soon for a whole month of rest and relaxation! Today I thought I would do a different kind of post. Olivia, from Fresh Modesty did a similar post and I thought it was such a cool idea and gives you a little peak into my live right now. Hope you enjoy!

The Zoe Dress

Hello all and Happy December! A couple months ago, my roommate and I had a sewing weekend. It was so fun to just sew and not think about school for awhile. I made the Zoe Dress from Serendipity Studio. It is a fabulous retro style dress with a full, deep pleated skirt and curved waistband.
