Sewing in 2013

Can’t you believe that it is already the end of the year again??

As usual I love to put together all things that I have sewn in one post to see how I have been doing this year. Some pieces got worn a lot, and some don’t get much wearing time. I think it helps me to see what I should be making next or what kind of style that I’m into at this moment.

For myself: tops, pants, skirt, a coat, a bathing suit, and as usual more dresses!

Lingerie: Still continuing my journey in lingerie-making. I also made a corset!

For Sidra: Not too many, mostly pants  because it seems that he is growing in such a fast rate nowadays. I made him a jacket every autumn, and this year it is a cape per his request.

For my husband: Err… just a pair of jeans so here’s a single big photo of the jeans (-_-;) He recently asked for a long-sleeved T-shirt so maaaybe I can make one before the end of the year (which is tonight??).


For the dogs: We started to foster dog this year so I have another one to sew for! I love making pet clothes as they are small and such perfect projects for recycling old clothes. When the dogs got adopted, they got to take the clothes with them so I can sew for the next foster. One of the happiest news this year is that we finally adopted one of the foster!

Also: a yoga mat bag for my sister in law.

I finally got a pixie haircut after negotiating with Sidra for 6 years. Although it is not directly sewing-related, but the hair kinda affects my choice for the next sewing projects. Maybe it shouldn’t have to, but I can’t help thinking if those dresses in my wardrobe still suit my hair or not. I got bored with myself frequently and always tried to make changes, although sometimes subtle, to my appearance. So maybe it is time to explore other style of clothing than what I usually wear in the past. Let’s see what 2014 will bring!

Have a happy holiday and see you next year!
