I don't know about you but I am quite happy to see the back of 2010! To say it was a challenging year is an understatement but I have definitely come out of it stronger. All the stresses of 2010 means I wasn't able to focus on my creative pursuits as much as I would have liked, but when I could they helped me get through some really difficult times. I foresee 2011 also being challenging (at least the first few months) but what can you do other than face it head on?
I'll do my 2010 round up of projects on my blogoversary in just over a week so today I will show you what I whipped up for New Year's Eve...
I was going for this -
But may have strayed dangerously close to this -
Garden State so I don't mind too much!
The pattern is BWOF 11-2007-107 which has been really successful for a number of people.
The fabric is quilting cotton (yikes!) which I don't normally use for garments (other than PJ pants) but I don't think it looks too mad.
I am thinking of this as a wearable muslin. I want to use the pattern for a work dress so this was a trial run to see if the general shape works on me. If I can get the fit worked out I think it will be okay.
