35 items.

That's quite a lot...

At the start of the year I had a massive wardrobe clear out and sold  or donated loads of hardly worn / didn't fit anymore items so most of these makes fill the gaps in my wardrobe. I have tried my best to use second hand fabric or Organic Cotton fabrics with only a few exceptions.

I have already worn my Lisette coat, that I finished in mid December, 15 times. It fills a huge gap in my wardrobe that I had been putting off filling as I was worried I would make a coat and change shape and it wouldn't fit. I realise now that that is a ridiculous way to think. If it grow or shrink out of this coat I will alter in, and I get the pleasure of wearing something I really need now.

Expect more of me here in 2020, it won't all be sewing but hopefully there will be more than there was this year!

Thanks for reading and following along
