Sewing Weekly in Numbers!
This, my friends, is the wonderful creation of Mena Trott, our Sew Weekly Queen! Last week, she did some number crunching and invited us four girls to contribute our own numbers (51 posts to go through!) so we can look over our stats in a colourful infographic way!
Part of my personal commitment to the Sew Weekly was to use stash fabric (most of my stash being thrifted fabrics) and I did visit the fabric store a couple of times but I'm really happy the clear majority of my garments came from thrifted or refashioned garments from the stash.
One of my favourite points was how many times we needed assistance in getting out of a garment! I loved that Mena included that, as I'd forgotten about dresses getting stuck on my shoulders or over the boobs when peeling it off. LOL!
Overall, because of the thrifty nature, it's no surprise to me that the costs are so low for an average garment and in a year where we were saving to buy a house (and did) I'm glad I didn't bust the bank! I'm in LOVE with how Mena's placed it out here, it's such a lovely record of what we got up to last year! MEMORIES! I love how my blog is like my scrapbook!
