At the start of the year I finished two cross stitch projects that had been in progress for a VERY long time:
|Mermaid of the South Seas|
Then in April I got a couple of accessories finished for Lexie:
My 1860s sheer stripe dress was one of my big projects for 2015. From March through May this dress consumed a lot of what little free time I had between work and being sick on/off again. I'm still very happy with how this one turned out and I got to learn a lot while making it.
Although it was only a mock-up, I did get my Regency stays done. I never did get around to sewing the real ones, but I am hoping to accomplish that this year.
And then this year I went on a handbag spree. Starting with this little gem that was later gifted.
And for the special occasion, I made a decorated boater hat to go with it.
Fall consisted of a Regency sewing spree. I went to work on an 1800-1810 Regency drop front dress and also put together a quick shawl to go with it. While the dress still isn't completely finished, I plan to do finishing touches soon.
For Halloween, I went vintage and put together a 1950s style swing skirt to wear into work.
Also in October, I got a head start on Christmas presents and put together an underpinnings set for Lexie to add to her own historical wardrobe.
Last but not least, a huge handbag spree for Christmas time gifts. I made a total of nine of these lovely little gems.
Aside from finishing some items, I don't have set plans set for my 2016 projects. Like last year, it will probably be a mix of cleaning out my stash and seeing what comes to me in the moment. In the meantime, happy sewing!
