A wee while ago Miriam noted that my children have growing wardrobes due to the clothes that I have been making for them, but that I hadn't sewn any clothes for myself. She kindly offered to lend me some patterns so that I could remedy this situation. As my wardrobe is in a VERY sorry state, I gratefully accepted her offer.
I took the patterns home, got them out of the package, looked at them, became intimidated about following a pattern and cutting out the fabrics and promptly put the whole thing away.
There is something about pattern pieces that scares me to bits, I don't know why! I mean I must be able to do it, surely!
I can easily follow an online tutorial, but the minute I see the flimsy pattern lying in front of me, I freeze.
I guess that the best thing to do is just conquer my fear and start cutting!
Now, me and my big mouth, I have promised to take part in Wardrobe Wednesday this month and as the theme is "Heavenly Handmade" this gives me a deadline to work to.
Hopefully having written this post will spurn me into action and this time next week I will be proudly showing you a new skirt.
(...If there's no clothes to show then I'll have been working on my quilt... LOVING that new challenge!)
