My original to-sew list had 7 things on it, with 5 optional bonus projects (12 in all). So how did I do?
My goal was to finish one of these because I didn't think I could get the second one done with Christmas around the corner, but I did! Therefore, this one counts as two projects. The first one took 2 months, but the second only about 1. I love them and I think they'll be great with a 1940s style outfit.
This turned out great, but I still want to re-do the hem properly. I'm also having trouble finding the right outfit to put it with. It really calls for a skirt, as after washing it shrunk a tad.
This project became the replacement for the Halloween costumes I didn't get to sew.
My inner 1970s nerd LOVES this, and I think I could get away with it as a 1940s look too. MUST MAKE MORE!
I just realized I only sewed from McCall's patterns, which is unusual as I tend to favor Simplicity! Well, this is the only one that let me down, so that's not too bad, eh?
I made 6 items, 5 of which were on my original list AND they were all done before the deadline! I think that's not too shabby considering I had a lot of freelance work pop up, and it is probably my best track record for a sew-along yet!
