Well, I’m too disorganized to put together a year-long sewing retrospective. But, I thought I would share something restrospective related. Below are the garments and accesories I made this year.
From my count:
- Two Vests
- Three woven blouses
- Three knit tops
- Five woven dresses
- Three knit dresses
- Four skirts
- Three pants
- One bag
- Three UFOs: MTP dress, a knit skirt and a woven skirt.
That’s about 28 things. Somehow less and at the same time more than I thought. Less than half are NOT BWOF. What are you gonna do? They work for me.

Last Years Resolutions — Measuring Up
I swore I did a post about my sewing resolutions last year, but I can’t find it. So, I’m going to review the ‘goals’ along the sidebar of my blog:
Attempt a FBA on a Big 4 pattern
Umm. I made an FBA, but it was in a muslin for a dress for someone else that I ended up not making. So, I’m going to count this as a ‘yes’ since I essentially did make one.
Develop a sloper
Draft something from said sloper
Again, I say ‘no’. And I’m in a mini-battle with the powers that be to let me work a flex schedule to take a drafting class in the spring.
Figure out my pants / crotch depth – length fitting issues
Well, no. But, I have found that it’s trousers I look good in and that’s sort of been my saving grace.
Flat fell seam a shirt
Nope. I know ‘serge’ and ‘fuse’ are the five and four letter words of fine garment sewing, but I’ve always had the vocab of a sailor.
Learn to make a blind hem
Lol. NO! I don’t care how easy you say it is, I just haven’t tried it.
Learn to use each of my serger feet
Almost there. This is detailed in my ‘I think I love my serger’ posts.
Make a double welt pocket (either jacket or pants)
Make a Tailored jacket
No! 2010 is our year baby!
Make bound buttonholes
No! But, I finally have the fabric.
Make shirts with collars and such that fit well
Well. I’m going to say YES! I made two awesome blouses this year.
Sew a wardrobe (mini or otherwise)
I’m working on it now.
Use French seams and construct a garment
So, I think my next post might be things to add to this list 🙂
