2011- Garments I made .

I'm looking forward towards the new year and the new challenges ahead and think its important to look retrospectively to the past to see what was accomplished.

Nine dresses for me, one for Grandma and one for little Elizabeth
Nine skirts
Two trousers/pants
Four tops
One cape
One jacket

2011 was all about quantity and I used lot of repeated patterns with variations.As 2012 approaches , I want to do more complicated items and that will be what you will see from me in 2012. 

Most of the above have a pattern review under type of garment label. I.e dresses etc.

I also refashioned the following items:(note the pillowcase skirt is not considered refashion)


Lots of Love,
