2017 at a glance!

This year garment sewing slowed to a crawl.  I read other blogs and many bloggers  garment output was triple and quadruple compared to mine.   I sewed garments using mainly  Big 4 patterns witha Style Arc, Pamela's Patterns, Sewhouse 7, New Look and the Tunic Bible patterns as part of the mix as well.

Here is a recap of 2017

I have given some thoughts to 2018 garments.  I need more tops; I find I am wearing the same ones over and over.  Some were made 1 to 2 years ago.  

I also want to sew some cardigans as well as topper.  I am definitely going to get serious about sewing some pants.  I don't know why I keep putting that off.  I think it is the fitting issue with pants, that many have overcome.  I am going to have more time to focus on pants and have pulled out some patterns to consider making.

I decided to participate in the 2018 RTW Fast that Sarah Gunn with Goodbye Valentino has started.  I think I can do this!  I got the fabric and the patterns to sew up so should be an interesting challenge for me.

  2. Your output looks pretty good to me, far exceeding mine and as for pants, yes I need to gird my loins and get stuck in on perfecting some pants.
