December in Review...

Sewing:

It was a hectic month but you couldn't tell by the number of items that came out of the sewing machine. I've had busier months in the sewing room. Mind you the pink onesie was actually sewn months earlier and just blogged this month.   

The List (Top L to R):  Wrap: OOP McCall's 2485, Pullover top: OOP Butterick 5561, Baby Onesie:  OOP McCall's 7367, Dress: OOP Vogue 8939, Wrap top: Butterick 6285, Skirt: Vogue 9060, Child's reversible dress: Vogue 1455.  
RTW Fast:

Just because I'm on a RTW Fast doesn't mean that I can't take a stroll to the change room with an arm full of clothes to try things on, right?


It was research, honest. I didn't pick it up. More on the cape in an upcoming post, stay tuned.
