2018 in Review

Sooooo, this post has been sitting in my draft folder since January. Not sure why I never completed it. Oh well! Better late then never I suppose! My blog has been sadly neglected this year so I figured a post of some sort was long over due. For more regular posts and updates, follow me on Instagram.
I felt like I hadn't really created much in 2018, but after compiling this list it seems I sewed I lot more than I thought! So here's a quick recap of 2018.

I finished quite a few things that had been languishing in the UFO pile and listed them either in Etsy or on Facebook. Check them out here!

From the UFO pile of past years - 1940s pinafore with rickrack trim
Cherry print pinafore
Asian print 40s dress
purple and white 40s dress
2 bolero jackets
green 40s pants and bolero
pink 40s Scottie dog blouse

My bigger sew-to-sell projects included these 1920s inspired headbands using vintage trims, several self-tying 1940s turban and TWO pairs of 1930s beach pajamas using the awesome Wearing History pattern.

Wish I knew her name! A lovely customer wearing one of my headpieces!

As for sewing projects for myself I made (or finished from the UFO pile) the following in 2018.
