Top 5 of 2018 The Hits

Gosh, the end of another year – how do I decide on just 5 here?  Especially as I have yet to blog all the projects I finished…  I’m joining Gillian on the round up of projects for 2018.

I’m not going to rank my favourite projects, but I am going to start with this, the paprika linen wide leg Burda trousers I made in June.  They sort of top the list because it’s the first time I’ve made myself anything that is this colourful!  I already knew the pattern would work, I’ve made it a fair few times.  But the colour!!  It’s worked so well with everything, and I found myself looking for them as soon as they were washed to wear again!

I’m going to say the next best thing was the windowpane wool culottes I made daughter no1 in the Autumn.  She just loved them and has apparently worn them every week!  The fit is great on them and the colours work brilliantly with the rest of her wardrobe.  Actually, that pink-copper trench would look fabulous with those culottes!  The warm tones would just be great together.

Staying with the girls, Daughter No 2 says her top make was the linen stripey shorts, she can’t wait for the summer again to be able to wear them to death.  She’s also put her blue and white linen shirt dress up for consideration.  She loves that it can be both a dress and a jacket.  And that she has worn quite a bit.

The last project is one that really isn’t just one.  Rather, it’s a pattern.  I’ve made a good number of Toaster Sweaters since November last year, and it’s been the one most requested whenever the girls decide they “need” another warm top for cold weather!  I’ve actually made them each another one for Christmas.

I’ve made so many good things this year that it’s tricky to choose just 5, but I think these are a good selection!  I’ll now try to decide on which projects didn’t quite live up to expectations.

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!
