The “2011 Recap” Outfit
Name & Location: Lizz Hale; Fairfax, CA

How long have you been sewing: After several false starts, I finally committed to learning in January 2011.
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I was a reader of Sew Weekly in 2010 and I loved the idea of making a weekly creation. I considered signing up in 2011 but having not touched a sewing machine in years, I was worried about the commitment level. Instead, I started my own blog and set seasonal challenges for myself to see if I could stick with it. I enjoyed this immensely and now I’m looking to get involved in a larger community!
What do you love most about sewing garments: My creations are limited only by my imagination… and maybe time.
What do you hate most about sewing garments: Honestly, nothing! I may grumble here and there about a particular task but I learned long ago not to do things that I hate.
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: I want to become more comfortable with fitting so I plan on choosing patterns and styles that will push me in this direction.
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: I’m going to (try to) keep up with the reading for my two book clubs!
What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: I love Not Dressed As Lamb – Catherine is amazing with print and color!
