SEW DAILY & SHARE
Setting aside time proved to be challenging in the past year. I’ve been constantly distracted by the big move, holidays, new school, new house…. I felt too busy all this time, but now, as the house is set and kids are settled, I finally have a chance to review my priorities and get sewing on the top of the list. So, I pledge to sew for at least two hours a day, and to dedicate at least an hour a day to blogging.
MAKE 2014 THE YEAR OF THE SKIRT
It took me quite some (sewing) time to realize that I really mostly wear skirts. I like combining them with anything, sweaters and shirts, and, for me, nothing really beats a white or sky blue dress shirt. It goes with virtually any type of skirt…. So, I pledge to sew twelve different types of skirts this year and share the results here.
FINISH THE SKIRT DRAFT-ALONG
A year ago, when I was writing posts for the skirt draft-along, I was mostly following directions from various drafting books, as well as some instruction by Kenneth D. King. It bothered me because I really wanted to explain the logic of drafting, and most of the sources only offered step-by-step instruction. Last year I gained a lot of knowledge on pattern drafting, the why and how of every single step and its impact on the final fit. I would like to share this information with you, so I am going to relaunch the skirt draft-along from the scratch.
Last year was an achievement as I managed to reduce my stash by 10(!) fabrics. This year I want to reduce my stash by at least 25% and buy on demand mostly.
