Here's to 2009!

Here’s hoping I’m as productive in 2009 as I was in 2008! (Click the composite photo to zoom in, and have a look in the Gallery to read more about any of them…)

(Here’s 2007’s roundup, for comparison)

Highlights of 2008 include:

I don’t keep track of yardage used vs bought like some sewers, but I thought I’d try my hand at a year-end tally of finished garments. The only unfinished objects are my winter coat and that Jean Paul Gaultier Patrones skirt from way back in February, which I don’t think is too shabby overall!

By my count, I believe I made:

  • 26 tops
  • 9 dresses
  • 11 pairs of trousers
  • 6 jackets
  • 3 skirts (which really surprises me! I could’ve sworn I’d made more!)
  • …and a lot of other things like swimsuits, fascinators, sleepmasks, pillows, placemats, etc

I’m not much one for resolutions, sewing or otherwise, but here’s to bigger and better things in 2009!
