I re-read my latest post.
My goodness, I do sound like the bragger!
I suppose I did warn you, though.
up until very recently,
I wasn't really much of a seamstress.
But I focused a lot more on finishing
than making something I could be truly proud of.
A piece of clothing that I could pack away in the clothes tub
and not be embarrassed
but rather, delighted
at the thought of anyone else actually using the garment.
I know many people enjoy
and I suppose she does a lot to further the idea
of using what you have and upcycling
but there's something that bothers me.
(besides the ridiculously low-cut styles she prefers)
Her clothing re-makes lack it.
I'm not trying to be ugly here;
when one tapes a hem with packing tape
they clearly (haha clearly - packing tape - get it?? :-)
they clearly aren't shooting for 'quality'.
When I sew
I want what I am making
to be better than the last thing I made.
that desire has paid off
and I am really beginning to love what I've sewn.
I don't think I'm bragging
so much as
Because a job well done
is something to celebrate, don't you think?
