A year in review

To sum things up I'm snatching padawansguide's lists =)

What I had planned to sew in 2007:
• 15C Dürer Ever After Finished. Technicly it was wearable (and worn) in '06 but I still had emebellishments left and it was on my '07 list.

• 18C stays Finished

• 18C polonaise en fourreau Started - on hold
• 18C navy uniform for Jo Finished

• 1910 UB corset Finished

• Waist cincher corset Finished

• 1880 Victorian nowhere near starting =)
• 16C Cranach bought fabric
• 18C Sleepy Hollow striped nowhere near starting =)
• 18C Dangerous Liasons francaise Scrapped - they ran out of my planned fabrics =(

What I made that wasn't planned:
• Grand kilt for Jo Finished

• Christmas lolita Finished

• 1750/modern hooded jacket on hold

Plans for 2008:
• 1883 Victorian late bustle dress
• Victorian underpinnings
• 18C new pair of stays
• 18C finish polonaise en fourreau
• 18C floral cotton chemisedress or caraco
• 16C Cranach
• 18C breeches for Jo's uniform
• Viking pants for Jo
• Grey UB corset
• 15C Beatrice D'Este
• 16C Elizabethan

The thing that I learned just at the end of the year was that the only way to at least try to cure my CADD is to just allow myself to work on whatever I feel like at the moment. Sure, it might mean that I'll never get to finish some projects ;) but on the other hand I think it is better to do something instead of nothing.

Which means that I'm keeping my unfinished '07 projects on hold, which means I can has Victorian =)
