Hello Friends! It’s time for my yearly review of stuff I’ve sewn! I have been pretty relaxed about posting my makes on here this year, so you will see a lot of new makes!!
I’ve been quite in love with almost everything I made this year. The only thing I made that I didnt wear is this, mostly because the material was unexpectedly polyester and I just dont do well in poly:
Now I love everything else I have made! Let’s start with the Unselfish Makes:
And then there’s the category of matcha outfits that we literally never wear together except for the photo shoot, and for the green set, i didnt even get our act together for a photo shoot!
I knitted two sweaters. From the same Aquamarline pattern!
I seem to like to make one pattern many times this year. This is quite a change from when i first started sewing – i would blast through as many new patterns as i can. Now, once I find a pattern i like (that is basic and versatile), i love to make a few different looks from the same. After all, much of the effort went into making the pattern fit!
And now the jackets. I have spent a lot more time on each of them this year, and I love the extra designs that went into it!!! BTW, they ALL have amazing, roomie pockets that can take the biggest iPhones. It took some creativity to get pockets in them! The black one has two large patch pocket on the inner lining.
Lastly, I didnt make any coats this year. But I made it up with all the wool capes I’ve made!
2020 has been a year, hasn’t it? I’ve had some very drastic life changes at end of 2019. So 2020 in relativity, hasn’t been too terrible to me. Being shelter in place gave me some allowance to dress however I like, and just for me. I felt that I was putting more designs into my clothing, and not so eager to just crank one garment out after another. However, reviewing this list made me realize that I made… a LOT of things. I suppose it make sense since I have no where to go but sewcially distance at home.
Total makes: 42
Selfish makes vs unselfish makes: 30 : 12

Thank you for reading!!!! I hope you all had a tolerable 2020 and at least productive, sewing-wise!!
