Top 5 Inspirations: What books, people, blogs, trends etc motivated you this year?
Top 5 Goals for the New Year 

Last year I did my Top 12 of 2012, it was my most viewed links of the year. I think I will only stick with the top 5 lists this time. And today I will start with my Top 5 Hits of 2013, enjoy:

Number 5

My daughter's birthday outfit! I just love everything about it and how much love I've put into it. Unfortunately we didn't get a lot of wear from the tunic, though I believe it'll still fit quite well next summer, it had room to grow. And those shorts, are one of the greatest things I ever did (click HERE for the details). She did wear these a few times. 

Number 4 

My latest Bumblebee pattern version. I just love the color and all the details I could re-use from the original dress (it was an adult sized dress I've refashioned into this tunic for my princess). It wasn't made that long ago and she's been wearing it, well, not now, those are cold months for this garments, but I am sure we will be wearing this a lot in the warmer weather). 

Number 3 

The dreaming of Spring outfit. I made this one while competing in The Sew Off contest. Three pieces were created for this outfit and these are some of her most worn clothes, especially the pants. The blazer jacket is a personal favorite too, I even shared a free pattern (size 2) and a sew along step-by-step of it. apart from this red one, I made two more, a blue version and a pink one. Also had a few bloggy friends testing the pattern, and they all created wonderful blazers for their kids. 

Number 2

Romper Dress knockoff. I had started this right at the beggining of the year, but it took me a few months to get it done. It was worth it though, this is one of the most worn items that I made her. It just looks too adorable on my little miss. I also made her a matching hat, but don't know why, I never got to blog about it. I did take pictures though... weird! 

Number 1

And my drearest project from 2013 had to be the jacket I made while sewing along with Project Run & Play. It was also a knockoff from a cathalog's jacket, but I certainly gave it my touch and it turned out - according to many - even better than the original. I just LOVE everything about it, and so does the little miss, which means she has been wearing it over and over and over again! No doubt the most used item I ever made her (together with the pants from number 3 I suppose). 

Next list: the misses!


  1. Adorable outfits! You did a wonderful job with these!

  2. I love these too!
    Your blog header looks fabulous, as well:)

  3. All of these outfits are adorable, but the little ladybug outfit is still my favorite. The emerald top is a close second.
