Best of 2012–for my Family

Let me start by saying I sewed many garments for my youngest 2 girls this year, the majority was maternity.
1,McCall's 5525 – Leopard trench and winner of the Best 2012 Pattern Contest at Pattern Review.  I heart this jacket, Meredith wore it just the other day and hubby was amazed that I made this.  I not sure where he was the entire time I was sewing it and Meredith modeled it Smile


2.  Burda – 7318 – Maternity coat, I have seen this on Erin several times and it looks fantastic.  A perfect style for pregnancy
.
3. Simplicity 2226 – made twice and will be made again, a great pattern

and

4.  Simplicity 4281 – a knock-off of an Express jacket for Erin.

5. Megan Neilsen Ruched Maternity Shirt – made six times for Erin.

plus one more I didn’t get a picture of.
6.  Vogue 1224 for Erin

7.  Simplicity 2512 – made 3 times and have fabric for one more
 
8.  New Look 6648 – the fabric makes this top

9.  Simplicity 2362 – for Kaitlyn and it looks great on her

10.  Butterick 5497 – made twice for Erin, looks great on her.


11.  Ottobre 5/2008 – a pattern I wanted to make for along time and finally got to it.  Erin had this on one day and it is a perfect maternity style

12.  I HAVE to include one outfit for my grandson (due in March) link here

I went back and counted the number of maternity garments, it was 26, now I know where all my sewing time was spent!
Tomorrow, the top 12 of quilts and bags.

  1. Wow Lori!! And you were saying last post that you didn't sew as much? I'm overwhelmed by all that you've accomplished, and it's all so pretty (and cute ... the last one!). Can't believe you're going to be a grandmother ... can you?? :-)

    Happy New Year!
