Re-sew-lutions 2019:

CAVEAT I will be including both a knitting and a sewing project in the answers.


The questions are:

  1. What’s your favourite make of 2018 and why?

Sewing – TATB Freya dress in tan velour – comfy & smart – wore to work xmas do & on xmas day

– quick & easy make, will make lots more.

Knitting – Vinterfjell, Skeindeer – 1st top down colourwork yoke sweater with significant modifications – 1st steek + added colourwork cuffs & hems + added short rows to lengthen lower back.

  1. What did you attempt in 2018 that you won’t do this year?

Nothing springs to mind.

  1. What will you continue to make?

Lots of socks! I am determined to complete the box o sox this year.

Trousers & tops – plenty more Freya’s on the way!

  1. What will you try this year that you haven’t tried before?

Sewing – Bag making – I have the Annette pattern by Swoon, just need the hardware & I’m good to go.

Knitting – own designs – not necessarily to sell, but just to see if I can design things for me – I have a shawl idea & a sweater idea to try. Have improvised some socks, but not yet knit a premeditated pattern of my own.

  1. Where do you see your wardrobe at the end of this year, and where do you see it in 5 years time?

End of 2019 – better curated wardrobe with a significant amount of everyday me-made items.

5 years – 85% me-made wardrobe, well curated and not bursting at the seams!
