2013 Sewlution completed!

I promised the Mistress of the Jar that I would use 12 pieces of stash fabric this year and I did it.  Phew – the Mistress scares me!

Here they are –

My surprise success this year was the Christine Hayes Derby dress (5th pic, with Hetty on a lead).  It’s a very different style to that I normally wear, and I could have worn it every day on holiday.  The perfect beach and going-out dress when the weather is hot!

I’ve found some skirt patterns I love too.  The Chardon by Deer and Doe is new to me (red print above) and I really like the shape.  This was my Christmas skirt – I haven’t blogged it yet.  I’ve made Simplicity 2152 and the Serendipity Studio Bella skirt several times this year.  More details on these through the links on the My Handmade Wardrobe page.

The problem is, my stash drawer seems to have magical properties and it is still full!  I think my 2014 resolution needs to be more ambitious.  Reduce that stash!
