Pinup and Vintage 2017 Sewing Resolutions!

My 2017 sewing resolutions are going to make me feel like a beginner again!

With the techniques I want to learn, I’ll be hitting the sewing books again and going through muslin fabric like nobody’s business. My 2017 sewing resolutions are a big step for me, especially with so much sewing experience behind my back! I’ve actually been avoiding the techniques for quite some time, but it’s time to get myself together and finally expand my sewing repertoire.┬áDefinitely watch my latest vlog to see some examples of patterns I’d like to tackle and why.

Also, my latest video also goes into my projects from 2016, providing a nice little retrospective of a few of my Vintage Pledge pieces and some of the projects that really pushed my sewing skills to the next level last year.

Pictured above are my collab post with Allie J, the little red dress project from December, the pinup bathing suit I made in the summer, as well as the Seamwork Almada robe. I love each of them for different reasons and it was nice to be able to look at the huge catalog of garments I’ve made for the website and see how far I’ve come.

Definitely stick around for my 2017 projects- I can’t wait to tackle some more complicated pieces and demystify the sewing process so that you can make them for yourself!

    Craftsy – one pant many looks. I think the teacher is Kathy Ruddy or something like that. It’s great for learning pant alterations and fitting. Also

    • Thanks so much for the tip, Belle! I’ve only dabbled in Craftsy a few times- definitely want to check it out :D

    I’m really intrigued by your choices to sew for the new year – they aren’t the usual stuff that everyone picks. I have the original of the 40s suit pattern and would like to make it some day. I took a long break form blogging this year but am excited to be jumping back in. I’ve got lots of vintage looks planned too!

    • I’m definitely taking a walk off the beaten track with my project ideas for this coming year, but to be honest, I’m very excited for it! I’ve made so many dresses this year that I’m ready to add different things to my closet! Will still probably sew dresses, but I want to demystify sewing other garments since they can be so intimidating!

      Thanks for commenting, Lisette!
