2012 sewing review

My sewing in 2012 took me places I've never been. Pockets, zippers and actual button holes were conquered! Costumes were even made for others (who then actually wore them).

I wish I had tracked the time it had taken me to complete my projects. Some, like shifts or hats, I know took me less than a day. Others definitely took longer than that. I plan to create a "to do" list for 2013 so I'm not panicking before each and every event I don't have the proper underwear for.

But in the end, I'm very pleased with myself. I achieved more this year than those in the past. I've tried new fabrics and new techniques and still want to sew.

Onto the photos! They're not in order, and a 18th century petticoat and a Mystery Science Theater 3000 costume aren't pictured.
