Happy 2016 everyone! I do realize the last day of January is rather late to post a year end reivew, but since I haven't actually made a blog post since August, I'm not doing too bad. It felt like I barely sewed anything this past year, but looking at it all written out, I was actually decently productive considering how much my arm has bothered me. I've spent the last couple of months with a new round of doctor visits, tests, and physical therapy, and I finally have a concrete diagnosis for my arm issues - cubitial and carpal tunnel in my right arm. Woo! It's nothing I haven't suspected for a long time, but having positive test results has helped the doctor and therapist formulate a better treatment plan. No scarey surgery for me yet, thank goodness, but I do have to be very careful how I treat my arm. But enough of that. On to sewing!
I know I say this a lot, but I think this is my favorite outfit ever.
I'll go in my upcoming costume plans in more detail later, but my goals for 2016 are pretty simple and similar to previous years. I want to focus on quality over quantity and make each project to the best of my ability. Physically, I have limited sewing capabilities at this point in my life, and I need to get out of the mindset of rushing from project to project just to have them finished. This is especially important for me to remember with modern clothes and accessories, which I all too often approach as easy or quick projects. I need to take my time with each project and make more muslins, because I'm always happier when I do. It doesnt have to be perfect or overly complicated, but I shouldn't waste my limited sewing time. That and I need to stop buying fabric, as always.
