Now that I have been sewing for just over a year I have decided to look back at my makes and plan for 2017. I have a long list of patterns that I would like to make but I have realised that having an extensive list (I love my lists) doesn’t help me to focus in the sewing world.
With everything I have learnt over the past year and looking at my long list I have tried to be mindful of what I would like my wardrobe to look like & what I am lacking.
Now that I know that I fall into the ‘pear shaped’ category I am looking for patterns that suit this body shape, which ‘The fold line’ website has been helpful with.
So looking at my current sewing skills, body shape, wardrobe preferences, what I am missing and what new skills I would like to learn I have created my #2017makenine.
I hope this will help me to focus in 2017, I have wrote out the same list in my phone and sewing room notebook so it doesn’t matter where I am I will know what I need or if I see something while I’m out shopping I will have all the details I need (List = Organisation=my perfect world).
I have been online and purchased a lot of the notions already to avoid the same hurdles I had this year which was wanting to sew a particular pattern to realise that I didn’t have all the notions I needed. 😦
