This is a lovely idea that I picked up from Prttynpnk who picked it up from Crafting a Rainbow: it consists of your top 5 things from this year.
Let's start with the good news first and the top 5 of 2012. A mix between most proud, most admired and most worn.
The Watermelon Suit - inspired by Jackie O and Chanel
OK, so there were 6.
Now for the bad! Mostly really bad sewing....
Test run of the Three Bears T-shirt - this is the Daddy
Traced Burda cardigan pattern and the fronts cut off grain
Rachel Comey fav top of all time made in stiff cotton and reminds me more of a set of scrubs than a floaty casual top. Never blogged about - wait, not even talked about!
Donna Karan jersey top. I'm almost sure I missed some tailor's tacks in this but the sleeves would just not sit like the picture on the envelope.
First pair of knickers and bra - absolutely no close up pics as the stitching is SO bad.
And now for the ugly. Things that just didn't suit me and should never have been sewn.
Yeti coat - now in a friend's dressing-up box
Stepford Wives top - really! So not me at all - in style and attitude
Burda shift dress that was more like a prisoner smock
The Pattern Company Jigsaw dress. A lovely dress but this fabric was too stiff - might try again next summer.
And the unfinished... yes the leather pants are still sitting around somewhere waiting to be completed (if ever).
All in all, I think there are many more good than bad and many lessons learned along the way. Not a bad year in retrospect.
Thanks again for your support and encouragement, your ideas and inspiration: keep them coming in 2013 seeing as the world didn't end and we have another 12 months of sewing until this time next year!
