Are you sick of all the year end summaries yet? I’ve been avoiding writing one up because Real Life Stuff kept me so busy in 2013 that I didn’t really feel like my sewing had much of a chance to grow. Really, I am more than okay with that. There is a season for everything. However, if I do take the time to look it over, 2013 still had some pretty fantabulous moments blog/sewing-wise.
The beginning of the year I was settling into my sewing room and preparing for my fifth child. I released the Mommy Poppins bag pattern and went to Sewing Summit in the fall. I started two quilts and finished neither of them. I experimented with leather and made a rad slipcover.
What I wasn’t doing much of was sewing clothes for myself. I want to pick up where I left off in 2010 when pregnancy shifted the direction of my garment-a-month sewing plans.
No more excuses! The time has come to sew myself some pants (or trousers rather,for you UK sewists. Although making myself some lacy knickers sounds fun too.) So this is my public declaration…..
I refuse to be a scared pantless any longer. I will sew myself one pair of pants a month in 2014.
What about you? Do you want to make some pants?
