The Most Worn List
#1. This top, made with McCall's 7630, has been worn a great deal. It's conservative enough to wear to work, neutral colour that goes with many different options and it's raw silk which makes it comfortable even when I was sweating at work during the heat wave.
2. The summer heat wave did come to an end, seasons changed and I had a need for a winter coat that could keep me warm during a deep freeze. I think I did it with this one, Marcy Tilton's OOP Vogue 8934, melton wool fashion fabric, quilted lining fabric and underlined with microfleece.
3. Paco Peralta's Vogue 1567 skirt pattern caught my eye when it was released in 2017 but it wasn't until early this year that I finally got around to making one in a silk wool blend fabric. Then a second British wool navy version was made later in the year and the two of them have become most worn items for sure.
4. Another skirt made it to the most worn list, Rachel Comey's OOP Vogue 1247. This one became a replacement for one that was ready to be retired. It's a comfortable work wear basic.
5. These pajama bottoms might be a recent make but they are quickly becoming a go-to item.
The Most Loved List
Now, the most loved sewing projects are a totally different list. The most loved items I sewed were not for me, they were gifted to others.
1. A cardigan sweater made with the most beautiful Italian virgin wool that I picked up with a gift certificate to EmmaOneSock I was lucky enough to win during National Sewing month.
2. Little girl dresses!
3. I was over-the-moon thrilled when I discovered this vintage pattern at a second hand store in mint condition. I used some vintage denim that has aged in my stash.
4. And a little wee jacket.
5. The simplest things that came from the sewing machine seemed to bring the most joy.
