Best of 2012 for me

It is that time again, the best sewing projects of 2012.  My first post will be the best sewing projects for me, then I will do one for my girls.
1.  Simplicity 2728 – I wear this quite a bit and get compliments every time.

2.  Hot Patterns - Riveria Jacket- My go-to jacket.

3. McCall;s 6163 – nice basic for my closet

4.  Butterick 5526 – love the gingham and the pattern

5. McCall's 6563 – an easy to sew shirt but looks great many different ways

6. McCall's 6512 – made twice and have fabric for one more.  I really, really like this top


7. Simplicity 2580 – my favorite thing made for me in 2012

8. Vogue 8831 – my most recent garment,and a winner

9.  New Look 6097 – wasn’t sure about this one but it has grown on me

10. Vogue 8747 - always need another basic white shirt

worn a couple different ways.

11.  Simplicity 1919- Ponte pants – these are great when I am not sure what to wear, they look great with several things.

12.  Simplicity 2584 – wonderful pattern, love how the yoke comes together

The big thing for me this year was co-coordinating with Lynne the Wardrobe Basic Sewalong

I do know after looking back at 2012’s blog posts, I did sew a lot of garments, quilts and bags but most were not for me.  I do need to change that a bit this year, I purchased more RTW this year than I have in a long time.  Now I know why.
Tomorrow’s post, Top 12 garments sewn for my daughters.  This will be hard to narrow it down to 12.


  1. This is fantastic! You've made some beautiful pieces and I can tell you enjoy wearing them. You look great!

  6. You have made some gorgeous clothes! You've been generous to make so much maternity wear for your daughter, I am sure that she really appreciates it. I've bought more RTW this year too.

    Wishing you a happy 2013!
