This year I am not going to make any grand statements about making wardrobes or listing out the next few projects I have planned because it seems I never follow them through! I also need to branch out a bit from black and blue!

I've never done this before but think it will be interesting to compare with next year so here are some stats of completed items. For someone who thinks and reads about sewing a lot, 28 completed items seems kind of low, either I am even slower than I thought or I am a bad blogger and have missed a few things out.
Unsurprisingly, 2011 was the year of the dress continuing on from my discovery last year that dresses don't necessarily have to be dressy. They are now a major part of summer dressing for me, this year I am going to incorporate them into my winter wardrobe (uh oh was that a grand statement I made there, never to be fulfilled?).
I thought this was a fantastic year for Vogue designer patterns and not such a good year for BurdaStyle. My count is still quite high thanks to back issues but I am optimistic this year will be better if the last few issues are anything to go by (hopefully not another grand statement!).
