A Year Of Julia Bobbin Makes - 2018

2018 was a big year for sewing.

It saw the return the return of my sew-jo and had me thinking more about what I wear on a daily basis vs what I actually sew.

I owe a lot of my mojo and my foray into more everyday clothing to Me Made May.
Previously, I only wore my makes to fancy occasions and evening events, thanks to my obsession with sewing evening wear.

Me Made May made me look at what I actually wear on a daily basis and reinvent items that I'd previously made but hardly wore. It gave me a new appreciation for my hard work, a new zest for wearing more of my own creations, and exposed what me-made items were lacking from my wardrobe.

I played with transparent silk organza clothing, lots of separates, a full length evening gown for Melbourne Frocktails (because I'm a 'sew frosting' girl at heart) and I even made my first ever pair of pants!

Below are the garments that I made in 2018.

  1. Love all your makes Julz. Plus it gives me hope that at some point (post baby) I WILL be able to sew more! xx

    1. Thanks so much lovely lady!! It definitely happens! I felt like 2018 was the year that everything suddenly got easier with the kids; Ashley is not a baby anymore and that meant all of a sudden I could actually sew while they were around, rather than have to organise a babysitter!
