For the last couple of months I have been slacking off in my photo documentation of finished projects, so I thought I´d share it all with you today instead. Oh, and Happy New Year!
This is my New Years Eve dress. AKA the Christmas Dress. AKA the oldest UFO in the history of mankind. Pattern is Burda WOF 125-11-2007, and it´s a reprint of a vintage pattern from 1958. It´s got kimono sleeves with gussets. Geez. I´m glad I didn´t actually try to sew this one up in 2007. Because that would have been a small catastrophe, I´m sure! This is part of the Hepburn Hepburn project and My Grand Plan.
Burda WOF skirt 117-10-2010, Burda moden blouse 6794-02-1975, Simplicity 2497 Cynthia Rowley dress, New Look 6000 dress.
Sencha the dress and Sencha 2.0 (Colette Patterns). These are both part of Hepburn/Hepburn and My Grand Plan. And the skirt is Vi Mönster 3324 aprox. 1960.
Self-drafted asymetric top, made from what was left from the gray cardi, Burda WOF 103-03-2009 jersey top, Burda WOF 109-03-2008 silk blouse.
The finished black wrap dress from the 1970s. Stil 7261. This is part of My Grand Plan.
What do I learn from this?
- I never need to make anything for myself ever again.
- I am not at all especially good at sticking to a plan.
- I want to do nothing but sew, sew, sew all day long.
- I need to start sewing more for others.
Can I justify any of this?
- All fabric is either thrifted at my local charity shop, or bought on sale.
- The two woolen skirts were made out of necessity of keeping warm in the freezing cold.
- I have already worn the Cynthia Rowley dress at three different activities.
- I “needed” more tops.
