Here we go!
I love to sew. I also love a great many other things, so much so that I'm in danger of having too many interests (is that possible?). But sewing is definitely one of my favorite things to do.
Ever since high school I've tried to assemble my own costumes or revamp old clothes. My sewing skills were limited to hand sewing, and I didn't have the patience (or time) to do anything big. I usually combined thrift store finds with old dance costumes, whatever would work.
In college, I received my first sewing machine, and was forever lost to the world of fabrics. I started out making costumes, ranging form simple to sort of elaborate. Since they were usually one time wear only, I was never terribly worried about finishes or durability.
Now I'm starting to venture into the world of wearable every day clothing. I have come to the conclusion that ready to wear clothes disagree with my bust, so I've got to make my own. So I've decided to start this blog as a way to document my attempts to become a better seamstress. I want to become better at maing quality clothes, and turning my curvy stitches into straight seams. Hope others enjoy my progress!
