2015 in Review

My, what a year it was!  Here’s a recap of how my life and (sometimes) sewing went in 2015:

I got pregnant!  (OK, this actually happened in 2014, but whatevs)

I made a slew of maternity clothes (dresses, tops, skirts, but no pants, because, frankly, I’m still afraid of pants after almost 20 years of sewing) to fit my growing belly, including a bunch of pieces for the Pattern Review wardrobe contest!

And then I made some clothes for him!

I dyed the under layer of my hair purple (because, you know, that’s big news based on everything else that happened), and we had a very Merry Christmas!


Like I said, it’s been quite the year.  So happy to have spent parts of it in the loving sewing blog world with all of you lovelies.  <3  Here’s hoping that 2016 is full of love, fulfillment and discovery for all of you!

  1. I’m really impressed with your maternity wardrobe, both the garments and the fact that you were able to sew so much during pregnancy. Happy new year!

    (On Dec 29 I cut an undercut in my neck. It’s a thing that really excites me, much like your purple hair (awesome, BTW)).

  2. Yay for purple hair!!! It’s my new fave!

    You had a baby!!!! The cutest chubby cheeked baby :) and an awesome sewing year! All the best in 2016!
