The year 2012 is over in just a few hours, but first it's time to look back. I have been doing a lot of sewing and a lot of vintage shopping as well, so I put all of my favourite outfits from 2012 into this one post.
I also made some new years promises a year ago, but since I succeeded terribly in keeping them, I'm not even going to start on that :D I do have goals and dreams for 2013, considering my business and personal life, and I hope to get even a little bit closer to those goals. I know I will be sewing a lot lot lot and I'll try to show you more of that too.
Happy new year! May it be a fabulous one!

|Beginning of February: The first gusset sleeve I ever made.|
|Mid-March: took part in a Mad Men sewing challenge.|
|Went from redhead to brunette some time in April. I do sometimes miss the red hair, but then the dark one requires lot less maintenance being closer to my natural colour.|
|Did some more vintage sewing in May. Also the colour blue started creeping in to my closet.|
|Did some more vintage shoping in late May. I really love the Greek style pattern on the skirt!|

|Lime green 40s inspired dress I wore for a picnic photoshoot in July.|
|August started off with a burlesque party and a Hawaiian inspired me-made dress.|
|at Ofelia Market in late August wearing a 50's reproduction dress.|
|Bought this 30's dress from the very same Ofelia Market. I'm also starting to be more open to other colours such as peach, white and neutrals.|
