This year I made the decision to sew my spring clothes. Why? Well, I'm not really sure. Looking back on the decision, it seems like a stupid one. However, I've already spent a couple hundred on fabric so I can't really go back.
I used to be a good seamstress, making cute theme outfits for myself on my pink sewing machine. My favorite was my cowgirl outfit I made when I was 10. I even went to quilting camp one summer. I loved it. But I guess with age your skills fade because this particular task is not going very well.
The first dress probably would have turned out well if I had sized it properly and if I had read my notes right and cut the fabric properly. This one was mostly done from a photograph and not a pattern. I wear it around the house and really like it but it doesn't fit well enough to be worn in public.
I have more cute fabric waiting to be sewn. Next to attempt is two skirts, a couple tank tops, a tunic and one more dress. Hopefully things will improve. Send good sewing vibes my way.
