A year ago today, I nervously published my first ever blog post.
Since then, I’ve made dresses:
I’ve discovered that maxi is an awesome skirt length:
…and a grown woman can wear a petticoat:
I’ve learned how to crochet:
and sew a french seam:
…and that my natural waist line is not in fact just an inch above my tummy button, as I’d previously been told.
From knowing nobody else who sews, I’ve been introduced to loads of lovely sewists on-line… and in real life!
This year I want to:
- learn how to sew buttonholes (eek!)
- start filling up the major missing category in my handmade wardrobe: trousers (EEEK!)
- and maybe, just maybe, start pushing the boat out towards selling stuff I’ve made.
Thankyou to all of you who’ve commented here at Diana & Me over the past year, and inspired me through your own blogs. Cheers!
