Resolved, Part 2

Of Notecarla macklinComment

Do I dare follow Erin's comprehensive resolutions list with my own?  I would bet that she not only accomplishes all the items on her list, but completes them before the first crocus peeps from the frozen Ohio soil.Here's what is on my list following a deep cleaning of the sewing room to relieve it from a dust bunny invasion.

Carla's 2012 Sewing Project List

1. A party dress for the birthday girl in my life (she turns 4 this week).

2. A new party dress for me based off an old pattern I created for a week long intensive couture sewing class (here's a peek at a previous version):

3. Some utilitarian wardrobe items for me including skirts, pants, and possibly a vest

I created the current slipcover while in San Francisco and it promptly faded in the California sun.  My next attempt is certain to be protected by Cleveland's permanent low-level cloud cover.
