After one hundred obstacles along the way, I’m finally sharing the faux fur coat that I sewed at the close of 2019. It is perfect timing – it is finally getting cool enough that I might be able to wear this outside soon! Sewing with faux fur was so intimidating to me, but I am so thrilled to be able to say I MADE THIS COAT!
Have you ever fallen so in love with a fabric or pattern that you just think of it constantly? That was me with this pencil skirt for about a year. I saw this fabric on Minerva back in January 2018, and couldn’t stop thinking about it ever since. Once I finally got my hands on some, I struggled!!
One of my favorite makes of 2019 went live on the Minerva blog this morning! I’ve been truly in love with this tee since making it, and wouldn’t mind one bit if I just had a closet full of these. I wear this shirt on a weekly basis, and I’m so happy to finally be sharing it with you guys! How many times have you made this free pattern already???
Another Recap – and another super late post! I’m excited to look back over my September / October makes today, halfway through December. I think next year, I’ll be switching to quarterly instead of bi-monthly recaps, because I just can’t seem to keep up!! Over the two months I’m recapping today, I made 12 new garments – my three favorites were the matching outfits I made for our family for our tiny girl’s first birthday! I did more “selfless” sewing over this period than usual, and also did a little scrap busting by sewing up a headband out of some leftover leggings fabric. I didn’t include any photos here, but that has probably been my most worn item from this period!
