Sew 100 Wearable items - Complete!!

I was updating a few blog things today and I realised something, I have now sewn 100 wearable items - well actually 106 wearable items!! He's the full list and links to all the blogged items - go me!

I've read the list and thought I'd choose the five items that are my favourites - its a long list, so it was a tough to decide on only five.

Princess Bubblegum Costume

I think this is the only time I've actually put in an effort to create an actual cosplay costume and I still love it! I also love this cute photo of with Ria (as Fiona) - its mathematical! 
Easter Dress

I made this dress in Easter of 2013 and I still wear it ALL the time, in winter and summer at work and on holiday. Pretty good for a dress made from fabric I picked up for free at a fabric swap!

Mask Print Laurel Dress

There was a time in my life where I was obsessed by the Laurel Dress pattern and I made like a million of them because I've always loved the shift dress silhouette and this pattern fitted my really well. I haven't kept ALL of the Laurel dresses I've made, but this one is still going strong. I love the mask print and always get complimented on how striking it is - all I can say is "why thank you, I made it myself".

Rich's birthday robe

There's no point in denying it, I am a selfish sewist - most of my makes are for me! Or sometimes for small people I know, not for Rich. In fact I've only made him a couple of things, one of them is this rad space robe! I'm still pretty proud of it and it gets a lot of use.

The Vix Dress

This dress had to make it here, because for a dress made from an skirt its had a heck of a lot of wear! I wear this thing everywhere - to the office, in weekends and hiking.
It has also been all over the world with me - Indonesia, The Philippines and Malaysia to name a few. Because a good travel dress is a small dress (that doesn't up much space) made of polyester that dries in about five minutes and never ever needs ironing!

Although I have officially completed my 100 wearable items, I am going to keep sewing of course, and I'm also going to keep a running tally of everything I have made here  because its good to have a visual record of everything I make. Hope you guys liked my top five.

That's one heck of an achievement and if that's a taste of what you've created then I bet every single item is utterly wonderful. Well done! xxx

Well done you! That's an amazing achievement. I wouldn't even have a clue where to start. The Laurel and the Vix dress are especially gorgeous, although Rich's dressing gown look super cosy, too. xx
