My new Deer and Doe Myosotis dress 

In the folds Sawtell dress

I did not sew many new patterns this year.  I ventured into drafting so much after my Creative Hinterland, Skirt Skills and Smarty pants classes.  I learned so much and developed as a sewist, pattern drafter and even designer.  

I looked back through some of my favorite of new patterns this year and wanted to highlight these – good reminder to myself to go check these out:
