Do you ever make something and then don't like it!? No, just me? Oh ok.
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/02/butterick-5850a-review.html I hate this dress lol. I got rid of it when I put away my spring/summer items. I think I loved the concept and the colors but the fabric choice was ALL wrong. Maybe it doens't happen to you but it indeed happened to me lol
This was too big when I made it. Even though I made adjustments it just doesn't fit the way I want. I MAY revisit this one in 2014, there are soooo many other dresses though so I might not lol. It also went away in the giveaway pile lol.
This one also went into the giveaway pile. I like the color more than anything. It's not as flattering on me as I convinced myself it was. Does that happen to y'all? LOL I was seeing myself one way but looked a WHOLE different way. Glad I have that under control now lol
When I was working on this post, I noticed how everything I didn't like happend BEFORE my trip to NY in August when my fashion eyes were opened lol. I'm excited about next year lol. I hope not to have ANYTHING that I don't like.
Sooo on to the stuff I really love. Now I technically love EVERYTHING I make, with the exception of the above items so these were just some of my favorite looks:
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/05/mccalls-5330-vogue-8422a-review.html I love this look on me. Im having a love affair with red all over again and working on a red dress now soooo yeah lol
This double peplum was one of my favorite items. So easy to mix and match with other items in my wardrobe.
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/06/butterick-5761a-review.html This has to be the most unexpected pattern ever. This is a great example of why you should ALWAYS look at design lines and NOT the pattern on the envelope. This dress got a LOT of wear.
Best Save of 2013:
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/08/vogue-5851a-review.html This skirt turned into a favorite after the dress was a FAIL for me. Best save ever because I LOVE this fabric.
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/09/colorful-peplum-dress-butterick-5916.html This dress was an instant hit. Great, great use of a gorgeous fabric! Can't wait to pull it back out to wear again.

I still LOVE this dress and my haircut lol.
Favorite Inspired Dress:

http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/10/im-in-love-with-my-wrap-dresskwik-sew-3408.html This fabric I fell in love with the instant I saw it. This dress. I fell in love with the instant I put it on. I felt like new money lol. I got SO many compliments on it the first time I wore it.
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/11/olivia-pope-salvatore-ferragamo-inspired-wrap-coat-burda-7275.html I've worn this so much already I'm shocked it isn't falling apart lol. I LOVE it!
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/12/winter-white-capevogue-8959.html YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. No words necessary.
http://adrienneslittleworld.typepad.com/a_glimpse_of_me_a_peek_in/2013/12/holiday-dress-2013new-look-6723.html I felt like a million bucks! I looked like it too :)
Do I have any sewing goals for 2014? Nothing other than I want to continue to learn and make excellent garments that I'll love.
Oh, maybe one goal, not to sew ANYTHING that will go into the giveaway bag because I don't like it lol.
Toodles! Looking forward to a great 2014!
