Subversive Femme

Welcome to 2011!

Phew.

We all made it, despite the Y2K bug coming 10 tens years late.
I got the iPhone 4 back in November, and it over-heated and froze all the time. I’ve been waiting nearly 4 weeks for a replacement :(.

Do I dare make some evolutions for 2011? Let’s see…

– go for a jog at least once a week

– spend less (much, much less) on clothes/shoes/patterns/fabric
– get over the fear of my motorbike
– new ink
– more sewing and knitting
I have a major goal for this year – to successfully embiggen a 1954 vintage dress pattern (bust 34, hip 37) to my measurements (bust 39, hip 44), make it, and wear it to the Fifties Fair Day in August.
Butterick 6815, and I plan on making the coat to match also (I scored 8m of black and burgandy plaid taffeta on sale at Spotlight, its stunning).

How did I go with last years evolutions?
Well, I did take up knitting again, met some awesome people and succesfully dated.
The renos are on-going but we have most of a kitchen now. Didnt get any new ink.
Not too bad I reckon.
My new years eve was fantastic, good friends, good food and good music – I hope you all had a fabulous night too!

    That dress pattern is wonderful! Can't wait to see the progress you make on it.

    I wish I had ink, but I have a fear of needles. Maybe that should be something I overcome in 2011.
