So that’s it! I’m all out of Sew Weekly challenges for this year! What will I do now?!
Sew at a more reasonable pace, that’s what!! And only things that I truly want to make. But I do still want to motivate myself somehow, and I think this plan will help with that.
I have gathered a nice size collection of patterns over the past two years. Some of which I used during the past year, some of which I haven’t touched yet. I’d like to get to those untouched patterns and see what they’re like. I purchased them for a reason after all! So my goal for 2013 is to sew up each of these patterns at least once.

Came so close to using this one at the end, sadly didn’t have the time.
Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing
I already made the Bow-tie Blouse, but I’d like to have a go at a few more in here. I’ll probably do the Scallop Waist Skirt, the Portrait Blouse, and probably the Pencil Skirt.
This is one I’m eager to have a go at.
So that’s twelve if I go with three from Gertie’s book. Once a month? Sounds reasonable! There seem to be a lot of evening dress patterns. I will probably make them more wearable with a different fabric from what they show.
I’m not going to make a set order for completing these as I’d like the flexibility of moving them around if something strikes my fancy. But I’ll try to also include an “in progress” post before hand announcing which one I’m completing next.
