2015 Sewing Year In Review

2015 was an incredible year!!  Here is what I accomplished, sewing-wise:
Accomplishments Completed Patterns
I made 5 adult pairs and 1 child's pairs of Lazy Pants.  I took a class a JoAnn's for Lazy Pants.  I mixed different patterns, and drafted my own pattern using Tilly's book - Love at First Stitch.
Learned how to add side-seam pockets (referenced Tilly's book)
Made a dog coat for a friend. This was very complicated for me!
  • Simplicity It's So Easy A1227
Learned how to insert a sleeve (via the dog coat)
Made a child's jumper for my niece (complete with Frozen character print corduroy and a cotton border).  I learned to how use the automatic button maker on my sewing machine - love it!!
Made 3 skirts as presents
Made 1 child's skirt as present for my niece
Made 1 half apron as a present for a friend
