Well, it is time to look back at my goals from last year and see how I did. These were my goals - lets see how I did:
* 1. Make things that I love - I think I did make more things that I love. Some of my favorites are the gold blouse from BWOF:
The Loes Hinse Oxford pants. I’m wearing these all the time now, so I need to make a few more pair!
The NewLook 6802 dress. This dress is very flattering and I love wearing it.
* 2. Pants!
I made 7 pairs of pants this year, but only 3 of them are favorites. The LH Oxford pants are real favorites, and I also really like the Simplicity Amazing fit pants.
* 3. The great white shirt
The gold blouse that I made from BWOF will make the perfect long sleeved white shirt. I did, however, make 4 white shirts - all of which I do like and wear.
* 4. More out than in (fabric)
Well, I have no idea. Somehow I lost the book I was keeping track in, but I probably did not hit this goal.
* 5. BWOF - 7+
Wow! I barely made this goal. I made exactly 7 BWOFs this year.
* 6. make & use TNTs
Not only have I found some new TNTs this year, but 10 of the things I made this year were from patterns I had used at least once before.
* 7. Make a vintage pattern - I did not meet this goal, although I did make an apron from a “retro” pattern. I hope I can get to some of those vintage patterns this year!
All in all, I think I did pretty well on my goals last year. In total, I made 37 things this year: 9 pants/shorts; 15 tops, 4 skirts, 3 dresses, 2 jacket/toppers, 1 vest, 3 accessories/lingerie.
