- Daisy scrub top for my mother - January 1st. She bought the fabric a while back, I used the same pattern I always do for her scrub tops and some of the overwhelming amount of navy thread I have in my stash.
- Grey and navy Tshirt for myself - January 2nd. Stash pattern and thread, purchased fabric.
- Grey and black Tshirt for myself - January 2nd. Stash pattern and thread, purchased fabric.
- Green Tshirt for my little cousin (aka mini-me) - January 9th. Stash pattern and thread, purchased fabric (remnant).
- Purple Tshirt for mini-me - January 9th. Stash everything, used left over fabric and thread from the purple Tshirt I made myself last year.
- Cream leggings for mini-me - January 24th. Stash everything, used left over fabric and thread from making myself a tshirt, and the pattern was a free downloadable I found online. It's for 18 months to 12 years, so I traced off the appropriate size for Briella. Figured I might need the other sizes later!
- Blue jeans for myself - January 9th. This was a sewing goal for 2016 as well as one of my 2016makenine patterns. Purchased fabric and pattern (BurdaStyle download), used thread from my stash.
- Purple leggings for mini-me - January 24th. Stash everything, used left over fabric and thread from the purple Tshirt I made myself last year. And the same downloadable pattern I used for the cream leggings.
- Pajama pants for Corbin (my cousin's oldest) - January 24th. Stash everything.
- Pajama pants for Alex (my cousin's middle son) - January 24th. Stash everything.
- Workout top - January 17th. Stash everything (I think). I used leftover fabric from my workout pants, and the tshirt pattern I'm obsessed with. I just shortened the sleeves to elbow length. It's pretty cute, if I do say so myself. :)
- Paris 1930s vest - January 20th. Purchased and stash fabric, purchased snap tape because I didn't feel like messing with buttons. Stash thread and pattern that was purchased forever ago.
- Gold skirt - January 19th. Last year, I cut out a pencil skirt out of this crazy gold fabric, satin with fabric flowers all over, that I bought a remnant of. The colors of the steampunk group I belong to, the Airship Archon, are gold and black so I tend to gravitate towards anything I find that would be appropriate. As I started putting it together, I realized that it wouldn't work as a pencil skirt because I couldn't dart it. So I just sewed all the seams, zigzagged some elastic to the top and hemmed it with some hem tape. I figured that I'd just have to wear it with a corset to over the waistband. Maybe a black satin apron that I have so I can wear my airship uniform corset because the golds are (of course) different.
- 1856 Walking Cage Crinoline - January 30th. I'm finally making progress on my mid nineteenth century dreams!! Also I have an awesome father, he helped me out by cutting the steel boning and crimping the edges together for me. I've had almost everything for so long that you could probably consider it stash...Part of my 2016makenine
