2009 - a year of sewingFriday, January 08, 2010Johanna
I sewed the Diana bag for a friend.
I joined Clevergirl's pant sew-along and decided to a Anthropologie knock-off. Here is the end result.
APRILI sewed my first silk velvet garment. It was a struggle, but I love the dress.
MAYI went fabric shopping with Melissa in London.
I used one of my London fabrics to make a Burda dress with puff sleeves.
AUGUSTI made a pair of skinny jeans using Burdastyle's Anita pattern.
I began selling some garments on Etsy and got featured in a newsletter along a former Project Runway contestant. It remains the highlight of my Etsy venture.NOVEMBER
I made a new skirt design, which I named Edith. It's one of my favorite design ever.
DECEMBEROn New Years Eve I finally got to wear the dress that I made for the Timmel SWAP contest in 2008. I love making party dresses, but I seldom wear them.
All in all 2009 was an incredible productive year for me, sewing wise. I think a big reason behind that is that 2009 was a very stable year for me, with few stressors and no tumultuous life changes. It's so much easier to be creative when things around me is in place.
