I’m really late posting this, but here are (most) of the things I made in 2016! I completed more than 17 costumes and 55 pieces. 

It was a pretty rough year creatively. I realized how much I depend on inspiration, and how lost I am without that. Diligence is definitely something I need to work more on in 2017. 

Even though my mood wasn’t the best, I’m really pleased with the costumes I made this year. The plaid suit is my favorite thing I’ve ever made, and I’m pretty proud of the pink ball gown and cycling ensemble. 

I think my construction and understanding of historical garments has continued to improve, which I’m happy about. I also gained a new appreciation for fashion from the later 1800s, and feel a lot more open minded about other periods that I wasn’t interested in before.

I’d like to push myself more in 2017 and try styles I’m not as familiar with, I think it would be good for me. I did a bit of that last year, but not as much as I would have liked.

I have other goals too, brief descriptions of each project, and construction notes about (most) of these that can be found in my “Look back at 2016″ blog post

As per usual, I’d love to know which ones are your favorite!

Oooh I adore that mauve one with the crown-tiara-hat thing.
