Hello everyone, Last year I posted a sew-along in this forum because one or two gentlemen seemed to be interested in joining in. I am happy to report that I did meet my personal goals, at least in terms of quotas. In fact I lost track of just how many things I made. The goal was ten sewn or knitted garments, and I think I overshot that by quite a few. I don't always keep careful notes on the dates I finish things b/c some hang fire for months before I put in the last stitch. I posted a few projects but never got around to photographing the rest of them. If people are interested I'll try to do that some time. Let me know. This year I decided to set up another challenge for myself. Since I tend to do a lot of sewing when I'm in the mood, I thought I wouldn't bother with a quota, but I would very much like to try some of the more challenging projects I didn't attempt last year. So here's my personal challenge: 1. make an intricately pieced 1930s dress, perhaps something with a challenging collar 2. I need a few practical garments: one full and one half rayon faille slip; a flannel slip for winter wear; a seersucker bathrobe for the summer; some basic shirts for work. 3. I'd like to continue building my early 1940s frumpy lady wardrobe (shirt dresses, plain serviceable skirts, that kind of thing.) Anyone else interested in talking about sewing?
