Karen has all the best ideas! Unless you've been hibernating, which would be totally understandable considering the current icy weather, you'll know about her latest clever idea to help us all achieve our sewing resolutions this year.
The 2013 Sewlutions Jar - image cheekily borrowed from Karen's blog!
Often one to back out of a scary challenge, I forced myself to get on board this time...but I decided it would be wise to keep it simple. Alongside 186 other promises, this is what I threw into Karen's jar:
"I'll be happy if I make one dress this year that is gorgeous and that fits like a glove. I want it to be 'frosting', but frosting that I'll wear more than once."
Why am I telling you this? Because when Karen picks a random sewlution to check up on during the year, I so don't want to be the face of shame! I want to nail my sewlution earlier rather than later, so I don't end up rushing it.
I flagged up this pairing back in September 2012 and I still can't get it out of my head. I think it fits my criteria perfectly - Butterick 2315 is beautiful, yet wearable and the 1950s wool crepe will give it that frosting quality that I'm after.
Wish me luck!
Have you thrown something into the 2013 Sewlutions Jar and how do you fancy your chances of success?
As an aside, you must read Karen's breakdown of the jar's contents - it's really fascinating!
