Vintage Sewing

2014 Year in Review

January 9, 2015

Hello all,

It’s been a long time since I last posted here. 2014 was certainly a busy year for me. There were some big changes, lots of new friends, and many great memories. Overall I’d say it was a good year despite the major stress of wedding plans and buying a house.

I though you all might enjoy a quick recap of my sewing projects, events and other fun things.

My favorite sewing project of 2014 has to be the Red Birds Dress. Everything but the thread was vintage and came from my stash. McCall 5724 was one of those pattern crying out to be made but it was waiting for the perfect fabric and notions to come along. As surprising as it may sound my least favorite sewing projects were my wedding and reception dresses. It’s difficult to enjoy a project when you are working under pressure. (I do have blog posts in the works for these two dresses, I promise)

Projects I wish I could redo or want to go back and alter? If given the chance I’d remake my wedding reception dress. The dress was made literally days before my wedding and I really didn’t take the time I should have to properly fit the bodice.  I’m not likely to wear it again any time soon so it’s very low on my list of things to do. I would like to alter the bodice of my Violets and Blue and Purple birthday dress. I love how it turned out even if it’s a little big.
