2013 Resewlution Completed!

Photo from Karen's blog: Did you Make That

Back in January, the wonderful Karen who blogs over at Did You Make That? had a brilliant idea to collect all the resewlutions from the sewing community, or all those things sewing-related that we wanted to complete during 2013, and provide a space to, erm, keep us accountable.

Here was my response and resewlution:




And for once in my life, I've actually kept my resolution!! woohooo!  I expanded a bit on the resewlution from sewing just 5 dresses to, oh let's say sewing the entire 1940 McCall catalogue of patterns (about 550 patterns--over multiple years)...but that's beside the point!

Here's a look back on my seven (woohoo) new 1940 McCall dresses:


McCall 3820: The 'Scottie' Dress







McCall 3939: The 'Hiatus' Dress

Here's a round-up of all my 1940 McCall Project Makes:

And I am still loving this project!!  It's so much fun to see how the patterns translate into real-life garments....stay tuned for my newest 'Fall for Cotton' make!

  1. I love seeing all of your dresses (so far) together like this - it really goes to show just how fresh and wearable they all are. You manage to capture the essence of the forties whilst making them modern. So glad you are still loving this project, because I sure am and can't wait to see more of your 1940 makes!
