I have had some difficult times recently but I just wanted to say I will be posting again very soon!
Why did I stop sewing? Two reasons.
Firstly I had one of those annoying sewing projects where I thought I did everything right: removing excess to create a better fit AND altering the pattern accordingly. But somehow the project ended up too small. Its funny how sometimes I just ‘wing it’ and the fit ends up being perfect, but sometimes when I really take care it goes awry.
Secondly I have too many clothes as it is and I thought it was time to focus on non-sewing related creative projects. I live in a small apartment and I LOVE it, but I don’t have space for any more clothes.
I recently helped someone else with a project, but they had serious time constraints and needed my help getting it finished. The stress stopped me enjoying the process.
Who am I kidding? I need to sew for myself for the sake of my own sanity! I’m sure many people would relate to that.
It’s that inner girl in me that feels like a new dress is never a bad thing. I recently cut my hair into a short bob, with the shorter hair I wear dresses even more.
Sometimes sewing is so frustrating and it can incite rage in even the most patient person.
BUT there is nothing like the feeling of trying on a dress you made, to fit your body and to suit your own personal style. I have to sew to stay happy.
It’s sewing time again
