December was only a short month to make a lot of things but two of the garments have taken up most of my time.
For the shop, I stocked up on couple of sizes and sewed any items I had sold on previous markets. And of course we made all the stockings this month.
I started the month by finishing a sample dress for my new dressmaking course. I wanted to launch it before I went away with courses bookable from January to March and needed to get some nice pictures done. The new dressmaking course is my favourite dress – the Betty Dress by Sew Over It. Now I have 8 dresses of this pattern in my wardrobe and love wearing them. The nipped in waist and the v-back is utterly flattering. I made the sample dress in a medium heavy weight cotton in cobalt blue with white triangles. I absolutely love it. Check out my launch email if you are interested learning to sew your own dress. I have a second sample almost finished but was very unhappy with the invisible zipper and ran out of time to unpick it. So I will show this one in January.
The two garments that have taken up most of my time are the two coats. More details, thoughts and pictures, you will find in my pattern review post.
I made a gift for my mom: a Lark Tee by Grainline Studios in white blue striped jersey with anchors. I still need to get a picture of it. So bear with me on that.
And last but not the least, I made another Agnes Top by Tilly & the Buttons in spotty sparkly French Terry which kept me nice and cosy while on holiday.
I didn't prepare you the usual look book for the month since I didn't make that much but here are a couple of pictures of the coats and the dress of the new sewing course. As mentioned above more pictures of the coat will be viewable with my pattern review.
What have you been sewing this month?
Thanks for hanging out with me.
