I did do a reasonable amount of drawing, printing, and dyeing, which I haven't posted on this blog.
So, here is every garment I finished in 2016: (I'm not counting the embroidered waistcoat in this post because it was finished in 2017.)
A black linen waistcoat. The collar still bugs me, but I was glad to have it off the unfinished things pile. I wore it to a funeral and it was sad and terrible.
A red waistcoat with black trim. Haven't worn this much, but I think it turned out pretty nice.

Pink silk breeches. I like these a lot more than I expected to, and they fit very well. I've already started working on a black cotton pair from the same pattern.
A pair of black pants, recut from a pair I did for the fashion show. I still need to make more pants...
Navy & white striped pants. They fit perfectly at the time, but have since gotten a little loose around the hips, so I might need to take them in a bit.
Toile pockets. I have no use for them, but they were a good project for that bit of fabric.
Loki: Agent of Asgard bodice-thingy commission. I feel like every single incarnation of this character has clothes with a ridiculous number of seams, and most of them in unreasonable places. The gaping at the front still annoys me, but I don't know how else I'd fasten it.
Loki Stuttgart scarf. THIS TOOK SO LONG! HOLY CRAP! I didn't keep a time sheet, but it was many, many hours of work. I had do re-do about half the steps, and some of them more than once. I also spent forever carefully hand sewing all the rectangles together, and re-stringing the fringe to make it long enough. Ugh. But at least it was a learning experience.
Grim Sheeper robe. I regret not interfacing the collar area, but other than that I like it, and it's a good pun. I hope I'll find a reason to make the pattern up again, or at least use the sleeve design for something.
And that's it! Hopefully I will sew more things in 2017, and reduce my Unfinished Project pile even more.
