Lately I've had this growing desire to get more serious about sewing my own clothes. I've made a few pieces here and there, I've even made a skirt or two from scratch, and I've definitely altered a lot of store bought clothing. But I've had this itch lately about wanting to take my sewing to the next level. I want to challenge myself and learn new skills. I actually want to be able to dream things up and sew it and make it happen. The thought of it is daunting to me but I'm ready to give it a try.
Welcome to 'Project: In Stitches'.
This series will follow my journey in sewing more clothes for myself. I'll attempt to fatten my wardrobe with minimal costs by sewing things myself. I'll challenge myself to grow and learn new skills (Hello to invisible zippers and mastering knit fabrics!). And I'll strive for quality and ending up with a wearable piece that doesn't... y'know. Look homemade.
I plan on sewing a few dresses, a few tops, revisiting some patterns I've already made before (to get more mileage out of them), and will alter some clothes that just don't fit quite right.
I'm kind of really excited. And a bit nervous?
