December & Year End Review

Hello lovely people. First off, I would like to wish every one a happy new year. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to say good-bye to 2016. Here is to wishing everyone a healthier 2017 filled with fun in the sewing room. May all your 2017 dreams come true!   

Sewing:

This month, I really pushed myself to get sewing done. Snow storms forced me to finish up a winter coat and I was busy with Christmas sewing right up until the last minute.

Top L to R:  Lynn Mizono dress, Vogue 1455; Marcy Tilton coat, Vogue 8934; more microwave bowl cozies; little girls' robe, out-of-print (OOP) vintage McCall's 9278, wool and cashmere pants, Simplicity 2372; cotton double breasted boys' robe, OOP vintage McCall's 9278; silk top, OOP Butterick 5561; Reversed side of the Lynn Mizono dress.  
Year-end Sewing report:  

This year I managed to sew a total of eighty-four items.  
☛  17 dresses
☛  11 tops
☛  1 coat
☛  1 cape
☛  29 microwave cozies
☛  2 pairs of pyjamas
☛  3 robes
☛  6 pairs of pants
☛  3 jumpers
☛  5 skirts
☛  2 baby onesies
☛  1 jacket
☛  1 necklace
☛  2 pillows

Not all of these items were for me, there were items gifted to others and of course, there was some sewing for Mama R.  

RTW Fast:

I'm happy to report that I'm finishing the year without any RTW purchases this final month.  Woohoo!

The Stats:

Looking back at the stats maybe next year's goal should be to sew just from my fabric stash?
