So let's take a quick look at my planned FESA list and how much was completed. It's actually not that bad considering I'm a "Oh squirrel" sort of sewist.
1. Wearing History Smooth Sailing Trousers.
The originally planned navy pair was completed in September. I also decided to make a second pair in some stretch wool tweed without the cuffs. (Confession, there wasn't enough fabric for cuffs)
2. Betsy pencil skirt out of black pleather
After thinking about this for awhile I wasn't sure that a pleather skirt would actually get worn. Instead I sewed a new Betsy out of some leopard denim in the stash.
3. Sew Over it Anderson Blouse
Completed in September and the blouse happens to go pretty well with the smooth sailing pants. Not that I have any decent pictures of it.
4. The Wiggle dress from Gertie's first book
Oh yeah, like you could forget that dress being finished.
5. Vintage McCall's slip
Nope, didn't happen. The pattern did get as far as being muslined/fitted so maybe I'll pick it up after the holidays are over. Maybe.
6. Leapfrog socks
Yes I did finish that pair of socks quietly in the background. My cold toes are very happy about it.
8. Knit a beret.
Nope, still no new berets for me. I must don the ribbons of shame.....or take a beret pattern with me during our Thanksgiving visit to the in-laws. Yes, YES! Beret redemption is within my grasp. Unless I eat so much that my free time is spent dozing on a couch.
I also sewed a couple of these tops where are a hack of the Grainline Studio Lark Tee. More info on that later this week.
