It's been a YEAR!

Well it's official!  It has been a year since my RTW fast began back on December 1.  I have to tell you, I have never given up anything for a full year.  I thought of refraining from shopping for Ready to Wear clothing for a year was going to be scary BUT once I got the ball rolling, it was the easy.

DIY Dress with Shawl Collar


I have a quick post today! The McCall's #7016 Shawl Collar dress was very easy sew.  This project was so fast.  I really love the look and feel of this fabric. It's funny how many people wanted to feel the fabric.

DIY Winter Coat. Butterick #5966



It appears that whenever I make a winter coat, the snow seems to disappear.  I've been enjoying make these fitted garments; experimenting with fabric, interfacing and linings to see what is the best for the coat.  The constructions of my winter coats have been a labour of love.
