I’ve been an on again off again “beginner” for too long.  After reading a lot of advice for beginning sewers, I decided to start over.  I’m going to join the PR Tim Gunn Sew Along (almost a year late) and work my way from the least challenging pieces to the most challenging.  Below is a list of pieces Tim Gunn finds essential to every woman’s wardrobe in the order I (tentatively) plan on making them.  I’ll keep it updated with the patterns I choose to make for each piece as well as a link to the finished products.  Wish me luck!

  2. Any Occasion Top – Butterick 5495 (Knit Top)
