Initially I was not going to do the typical year in review type post because well...if I did I would have to post more fails than success' and more waders than wearers so I decided instead I would just post my top 10 favorites from 2014 in no particular order.
#1. V1314 and #2. "faux fur" vest#3. V8825
#7. M6844 (made this 3 times)
#9. S1613 & M6654
- Increase my use of woven fabrics for more tailored pieces and less knit pieces (although I love a good Ponte knit)
- Take a chance at making pants (since I typically only make skirts and dresses)
- Attempt buttons/buttonholes and fly front zippers(goes back to that pants goal above)
- Still deciding if I need a fabric buying restriction goal. I'll get back to ya on that one
Question: When do you no longer consider yourself a newbie to the sewing community? I received my sewing machine in November of 2013 but didn't start cranking out garments until 2014 and by cranking them out, I mean in a snails pace kind of way. I guess I still consider myself new because there are so many techniques I still have not attempted. Perhaps, I'm just a slow learner or a scared learner?I'm curious.. How did you learn to sew and do you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate, or advanced sewer and why?
Let me know,
