Goodbye, 2011

As the year draws to a close, I cannot help but look back at all that I failed to accomplish (Happy New Year!) and this little guy tops the sewing category list. It's a Built by Wendy Simplicity 3966 pattern and my first attempt at making a coat. I suppose the problem is that already, at this stage of the sewing process, I find the coat rather bulky and unflattering. As a result, I'm not inspired to make the lining, facings, and button holes, which would take time away from other activities, like, lying face flat on my bed, looking out the window, reading a book, etc.

What a dilemma!  

Only 2012 can tell what fate lies in store for the little guy.

  1. Hiya - I think you should finish it! Though, of course "should" is a dangerous word but in this instance I mean it in peace. Would I finish it? Probably, but then everything I do seems to teach me something. Anyway, it will be interesting to see if you do.

    Me, I have trouble finishing stuff as simple as a long sleeve T at the moment. Can't even get something as seriously basic as that to fit. Argh. Will I finish it? Yep because I'm a sucker.
