Why yes, maybe I will try something new…

I have been doing a lot of sewing lately. Pretty much every night after H goes to bed I head up to the craft floor and continue working on a project or start something new. I have definitely seen improvement in skill over the last month or so from doing this, but even more so I’ve noticed a greater confidence in my ability.

With this new found confidence (however new and shaky it may be!) I think I would like to try my hand at making clothes. I love vintage dresses/style. If I was rich my entire wardrobe would come from modcloth, shabbyabble and pinupgirlclothing. Seriously love the look – but not in love with the price tag. For Christmas this year Dahl bought me a vintage sewing book that I found incredibly intimidating when I first looked through it…. now it doesn’t seem so daunting.

I think in the next few months I may givenit a go. I picked up a beautiful vintage-inspired pattern yesterday from fabricland and I have a few picked out from my book. Now to find the material and the courage!
