Why hello there! Remember me?
It’s been over a month now, but finals and schoolwork got in the way. I did make some stuff, but that will be relegated to the new year.
But I’m back for the reflection on the 2014 year. I’ll be posting each of the sewing top 5 this week, one day at a time.
So first up: Hits!
Now, I’ve only worn this once, and I have a feeling I won’t be wearing it much more but it was a fantastic learning experience and it was nice to know I was wearing me made during May, even on such a big day. As a plus, my mom and my grandmother loved it!
This simple staple is one of the most comfy things I own. Seriously. Perhaps one of the most comfy things I’ve ever owned. So much comfy. It doesn’t try to be things it isn’t, and it doesn’t ever fly up in the wind, and I don’t feel especially dressy when wearing it, but it feels at least a bit dressy. Maybe that’s a reason to make another!
My first full circle skirt, made out of suiting fabric no less, and I wear it all the time. Sometimes I go looking for it and realize its in the wash. Because I’ve worn it twice since the last time it got washed.
I didn’t spend much time on the post for this, but that was partly since I had already been using it for a few weeks. In reality, I designed it one day during class (oops!), and I went home and made it that weekend. I had planned for it to be a “wearable” muslin, to make it out of a paisley fabric later, but then I never wanted to pull it apart.
5. Comfy tee
Like the circle skirt, I’m continually looking to wear this. I’m embarrassed to admit, one day I wanted to wear it, and then I realized that not only had I worn it the day before, but also that I couldn’t find it since I was still wearing it. That was most certainly a fun day.
Honorable mention goes to my knitted socks. I love them so much, but I can only wear them for a day or two between washes before they stretch out.
Secondary honorable mention to my rainforest purse. I use it weekly, and its also a great day trip bag since it both holds so much and rarely looks full.
So that wraps up my top 5 hits! See you tomorrow for the misses!
