I have realised this year is going to be a challenging one for me, and I know my sewing will suffer if I don't have a plan. I joined the Sew Weekly circle, but I now see that I will not be able to follow the weekly challenges. I feel it will restrict me and I will end up sewing things that I do not really want.
So I was very happy when I fell on Suzie's 12 in 2012 project. Basically, she's set herself 12 goals which she wants to achieve this year. She decided to sew 12 items, learn 12 new sewing skills, and use 12 new techniques.
I will only concentrate on sewing 12 items. I am sure I am bound to pick up a few new tricks along the way, and I will share those with you when I do.
I am selecting 12 items which I REALLY want to make this year. I am sure I will make other things as well, but these 12 are those that I would rather make. In other words, if I only have to make 12 things this year, it should be these.
1) Bombshell Dress
2) Trench Coat
3) The Couture Dress with Susan Khalje
4) Galaxy Dress
5) Silk Blouse
6) Lace Dress
7) Lonsdale Dress
8) Maxi dress
9) Pattern Runway One shoulder dress
10) Pencil Skirt
11) Shift Dress
12) Shirt Dress
I am not planning to sew the actual items pictured above, well except those that are patterns, like the lonsdale, bombshell dress, couture dress, and one shoulder dress. I will have to find patterns that I like for the rest of the items as I go along.
Is there anything you ABSOLUTELY want to make this year?
