Well, clearly, I like my Burda. It was 75 percent of what I sewed this year. At least I’m getting my money’s worth!
I still love dresses. They flatter me the most. But, I branched out into separates. Mostly because of my China trip. I’m thrilled I made two jackets this year and hope that continues.
The not so good things: The Patrones dress, my pleated Burda and the notched collar Burda. The Patrones was my first FBA and I didn’t do a great job. It was always just too snug for me across the bust so I bid her adieu. The Burda pleated dress got shrunk. The notched collar Burda should have been lined and had a touch more ease in the lower body. And, again, still hadn’t mastered an FBA. I would definitely remake all three.
I really do like grey, don’t I?
I’ve started my first project of 2011. But, I don’t want to say yet since I have a habit of chickening out. But, I traced it out on Christmas Eve and have started my lining/muslin. If that is ok, then we can say it out loud.
I don’t say it enough, but it must be said often. I have the best blog readers and friends in the world. Writing my blog and knowing that anyone out there cares about what I have to say is the best gift I could have. Thank you all for taking the time to read and encourage me.
