I really wanted to start sewing my own vintage inspired clothes. So I would be sure they would fit and it would be original.
I started with the project in January. First I found the pattern: Simplicity 5403. I'm not going to put a picture of it on here, because it says: "costumes for adults". Go figure. I just wanted a real circle skirt, so I thought to hell with it! Then I found some lovely fabric with a light stripe in green. What's it made of? Haven't got the foggiest.
The whole experience of pinning and cutting was fun, but tedious. After it was cut, I didn't touch it for a few months.
Yes, I was terrified of the sewing machine!
And then like magic I just really wanted to make the damn thing. So I did. My mum helped me along the way. Just because I know lessons would frustrate me. Not that the skirt came together without frustration, but that's the fun of it? Right?
Either way I finished it after working on it a bit every night for a week. And I'm really proud of myself!
I already started a new project this weekend. Guess what? I've already been busy with the sewing machine!
The sound of that thing is getting addictive!
