Inspired by bloggers like Did You Make That? I’ve decided to start a sewing blog. Because the world really needs another one.
Or I just need a place to refer back to when I comment on sewing blogs as well as a place to be honest about my horrible procrastination and awful mistakes. Such as sewing elastic on with a straight stitch instead of zigzagged.
So far I’ve made a skirt since I started sewing again. Well, remade. It was a long white skirt that was the wrong length and didn’t fit comfortably so I used the 20 minute skirt tutorial to add wide black elastic at the top and cut it to a better length and it really is lovely for in home lounging or wearing as a slip—as it’s a bit too sheer for actual outer wear. Oh well. Plus I sewed the black elastic on with a straight stitch in blue thread. Because I’m just that awesome…
Oh well. I will be a great sewist some day! Until then, the process is important and edifying, right?
