It's been a while, I know. Wish I had an epic things-I-sewed-this-year post, but honestly, I didn't do that much. Here's the list:
1. Plain red Alabama Chanin Factory Dress
2. Reverse applique Alabama Chanin fitted dress
3. Rachel Comey Vogue Patterns 1585 popcorn dress (not finished; posted on Instagram)
I don't love it, but still really like the design and would like to try again, maybe not in mixed fabrics this time.
4. Fixing and finishing of t-shirts using AC fabric:
I found out that Eloflex works great for constructing knit seams. Will definitely be using that again!
It's been a tough year, but two bright spots were 1) finding a great group of sewists to hang out with (hi, New England Stitchers!), and 2) stitching with my niece. I got her a sewing machine for Christmas, and she's already cranking out bags. Awesome.
I don't have a huge list of resewlutions for 2019—I actually wound up buying RTW clothes this year for various reasons, so my closet is pretty well stocked. But I'd like to tackle a DP Studio pattern this year, just for the experience. And I'm mulling over whether to buy Alabama Chanin's Build a Wardrobe. I really like the patterns.
That's all for now. Happy New Year!
