Rounding up our Best of 2012 series is this stellar list of sewing projects from our impressively talented Kollabora community. If you're quick, you can still get in a fab DIY dress, quilt or pair of adorable shoes before the year is out. Fire up the machine, make sure all the parts are freshly greased and stitch yourself into the new year. 2013 will thank you for it.

Lisette Portfolio Dress by Allyson :: By a Thin Thread -- We simply adore this summer staple.
