Plans 2015

I made huge plans for 2015 as usually. I am not sure how I will manage to achieve them all but I will try. The main goal is that I should enjoy my sewing.

The next goal is to win our bet with Semeon that I can make 50 items in 2 years so 15 items should be finished till end of June. I hope the victory will be mine !%)

Also I want to control my fabric stash(this is most difficult) and budget, last year my sewing expenses were too big. I plan to sew not only from Burda, to sew to other persons, to sew some man's clothes, lingerie, a dress per season(at least), finish some old UFOs, use some vintage patterns, learn how to make welt pocket, stop to fear garments with buttons (I don't like buttonholes), make a leather jacket and a wool jacket. I want to knit a hat or maybe two and try to start sweater. Uhh, big plans! And I want to blog regularly%)

Hope I will make again Me Made May and two more challenges - Burda Challenge(I will sew from January issue in January and so one) and Vintage Pledge(I plan to make 2 vintage items). Happy sewing!

Summary of 2014

Before making some plans for 2015 I would like to summarize last year's sewing. 2014 was not too sewing year because of different reasons. The main one was overseas moving, I got my sewing space only in May. Also on the new place you had to do a lot of stuff instead of sewing.

Totally I finished 13 items ( and started some more%). 4 items were not for me. I made 2 kid's skirts, friend's skirt and cushion for our couch. 2 items were half-made in 2013 and I finished them. 2 items were refashioned.

I made 7 skirts (3 - not for me), 1 t-shirt, 1 dress, 1 turtleneck. 2 refashioned items were skirts too%)
I used 3 Burda patterns, 1 Ottobre, 1 KwikSew, 5 self-drafted or without pattern.

I bought a lot of beautiful fabrics, failed in Summer Stashbust 2014, participated in Spring Sewing Swap 2014.

My favorite made is summer dress, I should blog it%) And I should make more sack dresses, they are so comfortable!

Dress from SWAP fabric

Also my favorite is the turtleneck because it is very useful and I can wear it with skirts, jeans and even my blue dress.

The next - ideas for 2015!%)
