End Of December Wrap Up


 

Like so many others, December was more about the functions and shopping associated with the end of another year, than actual sewing.  I did manage to make a few things to take away on my summer camping trip which will be blogged in January.  For now though, here is what I managed to photograph for December. 

Usually I can pick a favourite make for each month but unusually for December I really like all three.  The trouser suit while a favourite of mine, actually had mixed reactions at home.  My youngest son thought I looked really cool but my daughter still can't understand the whole trouser suit trend. 

The blue dress is actually made from a tencil type fabric and not sueded silk like some of my readers thought.  I wouldn't mind making it with sueded silk though.  This dress has become a favourite work dress and I am really pleased with my sleeve alterations.

The pink dress, is also a favourite.  I love this fabric and have had it stored for a year with no idea what to make out of it.  I am really pleased with my fake wrap dress and this pattern will be used again in some form.
