This is not me, but some brave woman whose pic is on the web. You go girl!!! I don't look a lot different though.... *sigh* Question for all you seamsters out there: How do you sew for yourself and not feel a touch guilty?
No, that's not really quite the right question.
I WANT to sew for myself, but it rarely happens. Why is that?
Why do I not make that cute dress I want? I have a gazillion patterns, I know how to do basic pattern alterations, I know what will look okay on me and what won't......why do I avoid it?
I know I need to have my dress form look like me - Is that it? Do I need a *fit assistant*?
For all of you that regularly make your own every day wear, what is your motivation?
I have lofty ideas, but it's so much easier to make a quilt top or kid clothes or a stuffy.
I have made a few pieces for myself - costumes mostly- but even those get made for someone other than me 95% of the time.
I want to change!
What am I afraid of? Spending a bunch of time and money and not liking it?
My shape? My color choices? ( admittedly, I have a penchant for the absurd novelty print)
I need some kick-butt advice.........and accountability partners!
Let's get me sewing for ME!!
