i like it. a lot. i pretty much want to spend all day, every day just reading sewing blogs, buying fabric and making things.
last year was pretty good, sewing-wise. as you can see above, i made four dresses, two shirts and three bottoms! i conquered french seams on pockets. i am still in search of the perfect leggings pattern. i need to practice knit neck bindings so that i can make ALL the Lindens, because i love making them and wearing them.
my sewing goals this year are:
- to NOT BUY ANY MORE FABRIC, DAMMIT (until it’s time for me to make the Winslow culottes, because i don’t have the right stuff for them)
- try at least two new things that scare me (i.e. fitting woven garments, making actual pants, inserting zippers, etc.)
- maybe try to blog about my makes, as it’ll give me reasons to use this space more often and make me pay a little more attention to the process
- sew more often. now that i have a space i don’t have to pack up at the end of every night, i can start doing a little bit at a time and keep a steady progression of project.
yeah, sewing. it’s cool.
let’s talk about sewing!
