Happy New Year Dolls!!
It has seriously been quite an exciting year in all aspects, but especially here on the blog! I think I found my groove as far as sewing time goes. I have mastered the art of sewing during nap time (or really early in the morning.. I’m talking 4am on a weekend people!), and writing blog posts on the weekends.
If you have recently started following me or been here for a while, take a minute to view the most popular posts of the year! Be sure to share them via Facebook or Pinterest!
In the beginning of 2015 I set quite a few blog goals, and one that stuck out was for me to sew more independent pattern designers. 3 pair of True Bias Hudson pants, and a pair of Ginger jeans later… yeah, I’ll do better next year.
In 2016 I plan to continue networking and building opportunities for the blog. I have received so much positivity on my blog, and I thank every one of you! There are for sure some old bitty’s that don’t appreciate a youngin’ such as myself, but I’m working on my attitude and the internet trolls won’t break me.
ON TO THE DRESS! This crushed velvet dress was made using my favorite knit dress sloper *drum roll please* McCalls 6886! (it’s no surprise) as a base. I made it a tunic length swing dress, added a cutout in the back, and added a mock neck.
I hope you are all relaxing today. We will be in the house playing with baby boy all day. He got a tent for Christmas, and I may or may not grab a glass of wine and eat Costco pizza in it. I’m just saying. You can’t judge because it’s the first of the year, and you promised. Lol.
