Looking Back 2016

I have so enjoyed the recap posts of 2016, so I thought I would join in.  And I will start with my favorite of all the tops, McCall's 7284
In total I made 57 garments, 10 gifts items and 18 quilts (baby size to queen size).  Making the total 85 sewn items.
Let's look at some of my favorite tops
Now I just made 3 skirts and I really like all of them


Dresses - Stripe Knit Butterick 6207
Maxi Dress - Butterick 6330

2016 was the year of the jackets for me I made several and in this category I included cardigans  and kimonos but the majority of jackets were lined blazer type jackets.



It really is hard to pick a favorite here, I love all of them!

I also made a couple pair of jeans, including the Birkin Flare, which I love!





Finally sewing for others, which really should just be Kaitlyn, I made her several new garments.

I did not link each project but will work on getting my gallery up to date in the next couple of weeks and you can just click there to see a photo and link to each garment I have made.


I think it was good sewing year considering it was a year of a long remodel project and I started a new job in May, which is a longer commute and more hours.  

I did make 2 garments at the end of 2016, which will be blogged and counted or 2017, so I think it is already a great start.

Thank you for all the comments and feedback you provide on my blog and on my Instagram, I deeply appreciate it.

Happy New Year and Happy Sewing in 2017
