Throughout all the chaos of moving I managed to squeeze a little time in to practice sewing. It’s been hard trying to teach myself but to be honest, I fell more and more in love with the process everyday. From picking the fabrics to creating patterns , to deciding how to cut the pieces to sewing it all together to create an actual garment; every step tickled my fancy.
This time around, I decided to attempt making a simple shift dress with a jersey inspired twist, making the bottom of the dress U-shaped, creating slits at the sides.
I was so sad to have to leave my sewing machine behind in the move, but this is something I refuse to give up. I will definitely have my sketch pad and pencils ready so I can get right back to work once I am able to access my sewing machine again. Sewing my own clothes has really helped me appreciate craftsmanship in general and the fashion world as a whole. So much work and creativity goes into the creation of a garment, it really amazes me. I look forward to pursuing and conquering this challenge. Learning how to sew well is definitely at the top of my bucket list!
