Being the last day of the year, I decided a recap was in order! This has been an absolutely monumental year for me as far as sewing is concerned. At the beginning of the year, I hardly knew anything about sewing, especially when it came to following patterns and such. All that changed though after I made my first dress (the Walk-away dress, seen below), which happened to be from a reproduction vintage pattern. I was so thrilled with how easy it was to make that it gave me courage to keep going!
I first discovered vintage sewing through Tara's blog, A Lass of Yesteryear, and Lily's blog, Mode de Lis. I was (and still am) so impressed with all of their beautiful, inspiring sewing projects! I discovered through them that the pattern companies had reproduction vintage patterns, so I was very excited and started buying them up. I have had such a passion for vintage and historical styles ever since that I purged my closet of modern clothing for good!
I am so very thankful for the ability God has given me to sew. I can't imagine life without it now!
Here's a roundup of some of the major projects that I have made so far.
All in all, it has been a very successful year. I look forward to (Lord willing) continuing to learn even more in this coming year.
And lastly, thank you, dear readers, for your support and kind words!! You make my day with each and every comment. Thank you all so much! :)
Happy New Year!
