Anyhow, here is what I made in 2015!
My line. It feels like this was ages ago.
here and here. (As well as the image sources because I didn't take any of these.)
Naxius's Jupiter Ascending robe and pants commission!
I don't love the fact that I still have sequin fragments in my carpet after more than 3 months, but I'm doing my best to stick as many sequins as I can to Nax whenever he comes over in the hopes that they'll infest his house too.
(More photos here.)
I still have more square sequins to sew on the outside, plus a few other things to fix up.
My ace flag sash. A pretty simple project, but I like it.
My weird blue wool waistcoat. I haven't worn this much because I think it needs a big bunch of Other Stuff in order to work right. It just doesn't work with my solid black garments. It needs to be accompanied by blue and grey garments that have texture, and possibly a large floaty distressed cape thing.
A shirt. It is a good shirt and I must make more. I did start another linen one, but haven't finished it.
The above one is black silk with sage greyish green embroidery in a Beardsley inspired swirly pattern. It's about 90% done.
a glittery half finished waistcoat. The sleeves and back are a whole lot of anachronistic nonsense and I'm really looking forward to wearing it.
I also did a bunch of non sewing things. Last school year I took a bookbinding course.
|Holy crap my nails are so short here.|
|Look at how tiny and stumpy that thumbnail is! Poor thing!|
I made a necklace for Nax.
I made a lot of great friends in 2015! Unfortunately I didn't do much sewing for most of the later part of the year, and what I did sew was mainly more unfinished projects. I guess I sort of crashed after the fashion show and just didn't get back to sewing regularly. I also completely fell off the Historical Sew Fortnightly wagon. Oops.
But this year I will try to do more stuff! I'm making an effort to draw more, and so far I've filled at least one sketchbook page everyday this year (with the exception of the day a whole bunch of water leaked into my room).
And I really, really need to sew more clothes for myself. Especially pants. I've been saying that for a couple of years now, haven't I?
