I don't know about you, but I can't believe Classically Short is officially a year old! I've done a lot this past year, and while I would have loved to have made more pants the fact that I made two pairs successfully is pretty impressive. When I started this blog I definitely intended to be more dedicated than I ended up being, but all i can say is life happens.

Now that I've started to settle into my new job, it feels like I'm going to have more work life balance. The need to have a whole weekend of doing nothing to get through the next work week seems like much less of a necessity now than before. I'm excited about the possibility for where I can take Classically Short this year, and to make sure I actually do more I'm going to write it down here to make sure it gets done. I've been told several times that a goal not written down is just a dream, so here are my goals for the next year!
make more pants
To test my sewing abilities more, I'm going to push myself to make 4 pants this year. The idea behind this is to make 1 pant for each season. I already have an idea what each fo these might be so I'm already better off than a year ago! If you have any ideas or suggestions of what pants you'd like to see me make leave a comment or send me an email, I'd love your feedback!
This is a pretty obvious goal considering I was pretty silent for half this past year. I gave myself a lot of excuses, and this is something I going to try to prevent. Key word here is try. When I started Classically Short I had in my that I would post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This year I'm going to give myself a more accessible goal and try to do 1 post a week. Since I've given up on social media for the time being I'm going to stick with posting every Friday to give you some expectation on when something new will be up. I'm not going to pretend that this will 100% happen, but I'm putting it out there and hoping for the best.
I've wanted to set up an email subscription for a while now. I highly doubt that any of you check if see if I posted something everyday, and I feel like this would be really helpful for anyone who wants to know when I've posted something new. I've got a few ideas who and how I'm going to use this so stay tuned for this to come to the blog!
As always, if there's anything you'd like to see me post about please let me know! It could a certain topic, something you want to see me sew (doesn't have to be pants!), or something you want to see me style, I'm always open to posting more of what you want. Classically Short was started as an outlet to express my style and get back into sewing, but I also want you to feel included so leave a comment or send me an email :)
Welcome to Classically Short!
