Stats For Your Inner Nerd: Version 2012
Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!
Continuing with tradition, I've decided to represent the past years' sewing in pie and bar charts. As usual, I did the sewing and collected the data, and my husband created the charts.
If you're really nerdy, you can view the previous years' charts:
Stats for 2009
Stats for 2010
Stats for 2011
This year I sewed a grand total of 169 items, using 154.08 yards of fabric. Compared to last year, I sewed 3 more items, but used about 20 fewer yards of fabric.
I added a new chart category this year (oooh, exciting!): fabric types used.
August and September were a major slump, as evidenced on the bar chart, and I still haven't gotten back into the swing of blogging yet. But I do have a nice backload of projects to photograph as soon I can find a satisfactory indoor set-up for use during our endless winter. Only 3 more months!
I was surprised to see that I sewed twice as much for my older son than for the my younger one. It makes sense, though, since #1 refuses to wear RTW, and #2 seems to gravitate more toward his RTW clothes.
Ottobre comes out as the clear winner, heh! When I want a guaranteed-to-fit, practical garment, I'm going to choose Ottobre or Jalie, or my well-used t-shirt block. The rest fall into the "experimental" or "fun" categories.
