Happy New Year everyone! This picture has nothing to do with this post except to show you the gorgeous- and much much needed- snow we got New Year’s Eve.
Friday I reflected a bit on the past year and today I’d like to share my sewing goals and give a bit of my game plan moving forward in this space. I’m feeling very refreshed and inspired and ready to see where this year takes me.
First up, I want to make the Handmade Closet page on this site a resource for you and me. I would love to have in-depth reviews of all of my makes for reference and to document all the handmade clothes in my closet. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time and this is the year I will get started!
There will be a post in this space every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as well as a video to go along with it. I’m going to try and be better about linking videos for you too! Mondays will be my reviews. I’m going to start next week and carry all winter long working through my sweater patterns. Old ones and new will get full reviews and notes and I hope if it’s not helpful for you in the moment, that it will be some day when you go to make that pattern.
Wednesdays will be more chatty posts and will be the posts that share my sustainable fashion. How I actually wear all the clothes I make as well as a bit of a look at my process.
Fridays will be my makes posts. Plans, capsules, finished garments, they will all continue to be up on Fridays!
Finally I want to really up my sustainability practice. I would like to question ‘Do I already have this? Can I get it second hand? How can I get it most sustainably?’ with all areas of my life, but especially within my sewing practice. And I would like to share how that works (and when it doesn’t!) with you here. Practice what I preach!
What are your big goals for 2022? Or do you make any at all? I’m glad you’re here and hope you’ll stay around for the the new year!
