New Creations 2014

 Whew! Somehow 2014 is nearing its close, and it's time to both look back on 2014, and to start making new goals for the year ahead. I have several end of the year posts planned (more for my own satisfaction than anything else) and it will be good to remember just how much I accomplished this year when it comes to blogging and sewing!

I decided to compile a list of the sewing projects I completed this year, with links to outfit posts where you can see the garments in action!

 In total, that's over 35 separate garments! That's certainly more sewing than I have ever done before! As always I have many more projects planned for the year ahead, including more costuming. I received some Truly Victorian patterns for Christmas and I'm excited to dive into a late bustle era traveling gown. I also have half a dozen 20's-50's dresses planned, I just have to buy some lining fabric and find the time to sew! I am still hoping to eek out a velvet dress for New Years, but we will have to see what time permits!


  1. Wow! I always enjoy your project posts, but until you listed them all together I hadn't realised how many there were. You are so prolific! I'm very impressed and jealous :) Well done!

    1. Thanks Tanith! I hadn't realized either, I don't think I have ever counted them all up before!

  2. My word, what an incredibly productive, inspiring year you've had, sweet dear. I've loved seeing the projects you've shared with us here and really must tell you again how phenomenally talented I think you are.

    Happiest New Year's countdown wishes!

    1. Thank you Jessica! As always you are too kind, I'm not a very patient seamstress which means I sew fast, though not always very well!

      Happy New year to you too! :)

  3. I am amazed by how much sewing you have done in the past year! I want to get to grips with my sewing machine this coming year.

    1. Thank you! I was too ha ha, you can do it, sewing can be frustrating sometimes but it is so rewarding!
