What a productive year! Sewing wool coats would be so much fun, I particularly love the style's from the 30's and 40's.

Not long ago I took the jump from sewing with cotton exclusively...and I'm so glad I did! If you have any tips for care of wool garments I would love to hear them. I have a vintage 40's wool suit and am trying to figure out how to keep it from becoming baggy in seat, elbows, ect... as well as preserve it as much as I can!

The dress with the purple gloves and straw hat is probably my favorite of the dresses from last year. It is so beautiful!

I'm afraid I can't help you much with wool care, Annie, since I am so new to it myself. And especially new to vintage wool care, since I only have the one jacket which I've worn only a few times. I have it dry cleaned and keep it on a hanger.

So fun to see all of these pretty dresses together! You did a wonderful job on all of them, and I love the mix of styles and eras. Congratulations on your excellent skills, Kristen!


Gosh, so much sewing! You have made some really lovely garments in the past year. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with this year.

Thanks Sarah and Kate-Em! It's fun to share these projects...and of course I'm glad you like to read about them.
