2012 Wrap-up

I don’t really have too much to show for 2012.  I did complete garments, but I was a very bad blogger.  A lot of changes happened on the home front and they took precedence so everything else took a back seat.  I’m hoping 2013 will be a better year (as I keep my fingers crossed.  Here are a few of my favorites, and I’m also including pictures of some that were not blogged about.  Hopefully in the future I’ll talk about them or make them again because quite a few should be repeated.

These were a few of my favorites

McCall 6118. It might be an OOP, but I still love it and it looks great on stage.
McCall 6206(OOP) and McCall 6440.  I plan on making this jacket again in a tweed.  I have made these Palmer Pletsch slim pants three times now.  Would that be considered a TNT yet?

McCall 4517 (OOP)

McCall 6559. One for me and one for a friend as a thank you.

Vogue 1247.  I think everyone has made this one.  If you haven't, give it a try. 
New Look 6130 and McCall 3830.  I love knowing that I can wear these two pieces together as you see here or as separates. 
The Kimono t-shirt by Maria Denmark.  I see more of these coming this Spring and Summer.
Burda 8/2012 #112 for Faye's sew-a-long.  There is nothing like a flashy skirt.  Love it.

McCall 6402 (OOP) but you can still get it on the McCall site.  I enjoyed working this skirt up.

The top is Vogue 1291 and the leather pants are McCall 6440 which I made and pictured above.  One pattern different looks.  You can't beat that.

McCall 6556.  I loved making this coat and it was probably one of the easiest patterns I every worked with.

Simplicity 2181 or Sheila's 1849.  I used 2181 so that I'd have more choices in the future as to the variations of tops to make.
Vogue 1267 (the Tom and Linda Platt dress) a dress I made for a friend for her college graduation.
Crochet cowl made is variegated chenille yarn

Crochet newsboy cap made with Noro Silk Garden.

Kwik Sew KP-2935 made for Mr. D's birthday.  Pattern is compliments of Clio.  Thanks girl, he loved it.
New Look 6036
Chunky newsboy hat (crocheted) with matching cowl.wrap knitted.
#3 Lace Caplet by Tanis Gray from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2010.

I want to thank everyone who has stopped by, called, emailed, or texted me to catch up.   You are all awesome and talented individuals and it is an honor to get the chance to communicate with you all about crafting.  You brighten my days and spark my creativity just when I least expect it.  You are all very talented individuals and I value your expertise and advice immensely.  I wish you all well for 2013 and happy crafting.  I can't wait to see what we'll all work on in the coming year.

Happy New Year Andrea. You had a wonderful sewing year! The leather pants are my favorite although I do love everything else you made as also. Thanks for joining my sewalongs too!

Tanya said...

Right back at you. You made some amazing things in 2012. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging, I didn't have such a great year either. Hope you see you in 2013.

Clio said...

Yay! What a great 2012 you had! Happy sewing in 2013!

Myra said...

Well done. I'm just so happy that you decided to do a review 2012. You made some great garments. Congratulations on a productive sewing year.

My comment disappeared. Not sure what I did so I'll try again.

I love everything you did in 2012 but the Black skirt with leather inserts is my fave. I want to copy it!

Will I see you at PR SFO?

Those slim pants are a winner--they should definitely be considered your TNT!
