Can you guys believe the year is almost over! You know what that means-time for some Top 5 Posts! I’ve kept up with Gillian at Crafting a Rainbow’s Top 5 Year End Reflections since I started this blog. I love looking back and reflecting on my life and my sewing each year.
As I gear up for Holiday Sewing in the month before Christmas it’s so nice to write-up some easy blog posts. I’m sewing like crazy over here but because some of my family reads the blog I’m trying to keep what I’m working on this month under wraps. I love a good surprise! They’re will be tons to share come January!
So here goes, in no particular order…..
Top 5 Hits of 2015:

Rouleau Edged Top
One of my favorite things about this top is all the different techniques I used and learned to make this! It’s a hemp silk that I dyed myself and then created bias tubes to form the neckline edging. Beautiful and classic. A wardrobe staple!
Indigo Bias Dress
The material used to make this dress was wonderful to work with and I loved that it also had a beautiful selvedge that I could work into the design. I’m really proud of the fact that this dress is self drafted. I wear this ALL THE TIME!!! It’s pretty but still casual enough for daily wear.
Organic Denim Embroidered Jeans
These are my most worn make of the year! They work with everything in my wardrobe and are so comfy! I really got the fit down on this pair. And I love how the embroidery on the back pockets turned out!
I got so many compliments on this swimsuit this summer! I love the fit and silhouette. Plus it always feels great to wear a swimsuit you know makes you look good. Plus it’s in my fav color combo blue and white! I’ll be making another version this summer for sure!
Holly Hawthorn Dress
This make turned a Miss into a Hit! My Holly Jumpsuit, while pretty, was just not getting any wear. So I ordered more fabric and took apart the outfit to make a separate dress and pants. I combined the bodice of Holly with the skirt(lengthened) of the Hawthorn dress to get this look. I love it! I wear white here in Florida like I used to wear black up north. It’s my staple color.
I’ll be back next week with my Top 5 Misses. Until then-Happy Sewing!
