Gillian at Crafting a Rainbow has posted her Top 5’s for 2012 and I thought that I would play along and perhaps (oh dread) learn something about my sewing. My 2012 New Years resolutions showed me that I really don’t like dress pants and that sensible sewing is just not my forte. I’m afraid that this list will also out me as Foolish Sewist of the Year!
Gulp…here we go: Top 5 most worn makes of 2012!My radiation batik top Simplicity 1978 – I have 2 makes in this challis, but the top is the one I wore out most- its comfortable, vaguely flattering and easy.I am the only one that I know of to make this- the cover featured a very off-putting shoelace tie at the front- ghastly! Mccalls 6604- the Don’t cry for me Argentinian Butterflies blouse. Again, it’s comfy, hip flattering and easy. Hmm- I sense a theme here….Floral Zebra Simplicity 3786- one more easy to wear one in under 17 pieces. Simplicity 1800 – not so flattering, but so comfortable. It was the crocs of sundresses for me this year. Butterick 5791- I just made this last month,but it is sooo comfortable, but still stylish, I am wearing it to death!
Ok, I guess if I were a reasonable person I would acknowledge that my lifestyle demands comfy easy separates and not so many serious, formal sews. But that doesn’t get me many new skills- tho I am now a whiz at french seams from playing with sheers this year. So I think I’d better alternate crazy and sane a bit more this year. What did your makes turn out this year?
