Yesterday I shared with you my sewing plans for March and so today I get to share my Sew the Year February Recap.
If you haven’t been following along with Sew the Year I recommend going back and reading all about it here.
In February I went really big and tried to focus my makes on items that have either been in progress or on my sewing radar for a long time. This included 5 different projects and while I didn’t complete them all I am happy with the 3 I did make.
I was a lover of overalls in middle school in the 90’s. But once I realized they weren’t exactly ‘cool’ I stopped wearing them. And honestly haven’t thought about them in 20 years.
But then as trends and fads go, they started popping up in social media and I was mildly interested. When I saw a fellow mom on the PTA board rocking a pair I knew I needed to make myself some. So bad in October I ordered the Turia Dungarees paper pattern from Pauline Alice patterns and some of my absolute favourite cone mills denim from Threadbare Fabrics and started sewing.
With no specific plans for the month that would dictate my sewing I decided to take Sew the Year February as a chance to tackle patterns that have either been sitting around partial finished or patterns that just never seem to get cut out.
We all have mental or written lists of patterns that we want to work on and in many cases even have the fabric and notions. But for whatever reason those projects just sit untouched. The flip side is the patterns that are a work in progress. For me the works in progress usually have something that bothers me to the point of knowing I will never actually wear them.
