It’s time for another check in to see where we are on our 2018 sewing resolutions. Since there are only 3 months left, we should be getting closer to finishing up. Should be!
For the women’s make 9 challenge, we’ve now sewn 6 of the garments we had planned. Here are links to the 2 additional items we’ve sewn since April.
Gabriola Skirt (I sewed it for me, but Aria stole it. So it still counts, right?)
Sandbridge Skirt (actually 2 of them!)
And in our April update post, I said I wanted another chance at the Ventian Skirt. So here’s where I sewed another Ventian Skirt, maxi version this time.
Only 3 garments left to go, and the Charleston dress is already muslined, so that should get finished this month.
For the men’s Make 9 challenge, I’ve only sewn 2 more items, so I’m officially behind. And since the hardest garment is left (pants!) I’m not sure I’m going to accomplish this one. Neither of these two makes are blogged by themselves, but here is where I mentioned about the Hudson Pants I made for our oldest boy. Since I also sewed him the Metro Tee, Mr. Skirt Fixation definitely has been getting the short end of the sewing stick.
2018 RTW Fast update: Still no ready to wear garment purchases of any kind for me! Yea!
Stash Shrinker: After my April post, I raised the multiplier back up to 5 from 3. I did catch up on the amount of fabric sewn, and am still going strong! It’s a strict fabric diet I have myself on, but I love to see the number of yards sewn keep going up. Right now it’s up to 310.75 yards sewn!!! This seems to motivate me as much as not buying all the fabric I love is motivating me to sew from my stash!
Project Run & Play Let’s Sew A Rainbow goal: Done and blogged. Well, all except the purple. We’ll see if that ever happens! There’s just not much love for purple garments around here!
Me Made May: Accomplished, posted to Instagram and blogged. See the posts here.
There are 2 more goals I hope to accomplish before the end of the year. One is to finish up some of the quilts I have in process. Fall and winter are such nice times to sew and USE quilts! And the other goal is to work on my fall/winter wardrobe. My spring/summer wardrobe always gets a lot of attention because of Me Made May, but the same scrutiny doesn’t happen 6 months later when the weather changes.
That’s all for today! It’s just sort of a personal tracking post, so thanks for reading and sticking around for all the skirt and sewing fun.
