1. Waffle Patterns Pepernoot Coat


This is possibly my favourite garment that I’ve made. I love wearing it. Sure, there are some mistakes and it is not perfect, but I love it and have worn it so much this year. I have plans to make another one of these coats eventually. I’d like to make the Tosti coat first, though, in this stiff buffalo plaid flannel that I’ve been hoarding.

2. Cashmerette Upton Maxi dress

I wore this a bunch in the summer and really really love it. I’ll definitely be making more in the new year for summer especially with similar fabric.

3. Moxie Patterns Verity Dress

Verity Dress by Moxie Patterns

From the fabric to the pattern, from head to toe, this dress is a winner! I love wearing it and get lots of compliments whenever I do.

4. Star Trek Costumes

Star Trek Costumes

Well, technically these are three items, I’m grouping them together. I’m really proud of how they turned out, especially for my husband. He looks spiffy and I am proud to clothe him in Federation garb!

5. Baby Bedding

Bedding set for baby Charlie

Probably the biggest project I have ever made for another person and tackling three different things that I’ve never made before. I’m so pleased with how they turned out and really happy for my friend with her new little girl.

Honestly, narrowing down this list to 5 was tough! I really loved a lot of what I made this year.

  1. Wow, awesome makes!! I love your Peppernoot coat your Upton so much! Great job on the star trek costumes, too! I really want to make myself a uniform for next halloween 🙂

  2. Wow, I can see how you’d have a hard time picking a top 5. These are all fantastic. What a great sewing year you had! Hope 2017 is as inspiring and fun for you.

  3. Hi, TO lurker here, especially love your coat & the colours, never would have thought to pick them but they really work. Have shoulder, trapezius problems & just was wondering since I find raglan sleeves to be better for me, might they work also for you. Tosti pattern is also a set-in sleeve, think most coat patterns are as they use less fabric? Don’t sew myself yet, looking around internet & getting inspired by people like you, might have to start! Best wishes for 2017.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting! 🙂 Raglan sleeves mostly change the location of the seam, but don’t make it much looser. Although, most raglan tops I see are loose fit anyway so they work. 🙂 There are some raglan sleeve patterns for coats. I think it’s pretty popular on bomber jackets. I love sewing so if you do decide to try it you can definitely chat with me! 😀 Best wishes for 2017!! ❤

I love comments, but sometimes I may be slow to respond/approve. I will respond though. :)
