End to another crazy year and time for some silly reflection!
Here are a few statistics and superlatives.
The piece I’ve worn to death over the summer has been this Sloppy Striped Sorbetto. With leggings around the house or with skinny jeans and a cardigan something about those black and white stripes just works with everything.
Speaking of Colette Pattern’s Sorbetto… here’s 5 more. Definitely my most used pattern. I loved the opportunity to experiment with pattern alterations off of the basic block.
The post with the most comments was this experiment in drawing a personalised croquis from the Colette Sewing Handbook. I’m really interested in seeing who else has done this exercise – maybe we can start a croquis gallery (maybe anonymous if preferred). It could be linked with different fitting adjustments, e.g. different examples of sway back. Just throwing it out there.
Hmm, I’m not sure which random google algorithm lead the most amount of people here using the term “elbise çizimleri”. Google translate tells me it is Turkish for “dress drawing”, so hoşgeldiniz to any readers from Turkey. Interestingly also in the top 10 are kıyafet çizimleri (costume drawing), dress drawings, drawings of dresses.
523 people found their way onto this post via wordpress and were bitterly dissapointed to find a post on Burda Magazine’s questionable styling after I accidentally used the term n * k e d lady.
I was absent for the first few months of the year due to travel for work and procrastination over sorting a proper sewing space. However, one good thing that came out of it is this tutorial on how to re-cover an office chair.
Ugghh, no one should ever watch themselves on video.
The most incoming links this year came from the superb Snug Bug. Here’s a big bouquet to say thanks, Patty!
So there it is 2011, done and dusted. Here’s to a smoother 2012!
Lastly but by far not leastly, thanks to all of you for your support this year!
