Happy New Year! This is the view out my front window for 2 months now with at least 3 more months to go of snow and more snow.
New Years day was pretty quite. Did lots of sewing and shoveling of snow. I will have some new things to show you soon once I take some pictures.
Fabricland had a 50% of everything sale so I got the bits and pieces for 4 different projects and stocked up on interfacing.
I have set some New Year sewing goals in hopes to get some long planned projects done:
1) Try to find a TNT pant pattern. I desperately need new pants and if I can develope a TNT pattern I will have a template to work with. A Burda pattern is my next attempt at this. Both Sewaholic Thurlow and a Simplicity pattern failed for me last year.
2) Sew a swimsuit! I'm especially nervous about this one as I'm going to have to lengthen the pattern. I have a long torso and have to lengthen all patterns. Ready to wear swimsuits cost me $80 plus as I have to buy the speciality suits.
3) Full and half slips. I don't actually own a full slip and since I wear alot of dresses it would be a nice addition. Most of my half slips are hand me downs from my Mom and are too long. I need an above the knee one as most of my skirts are just above my knee in length.
Happy Sewing :)
