I’m excited. This is the FIRST EVER garment I ever made!! I’m blogging about it 9 months after making it, so there’s no commentary here on the details. Although I must tell you, this created high excitement, and triggered a mad love of making clothes. I did make one or two things twenty years ago (!!), but let me tell you, trying to teach yourself dressmaking with only the big 4 pattern companies patterns for company is one hair-pulling/teeth-gnashing experience. Being 20 and impatient, I gave up.
Much much later, when I bought my first Tilly and the Buttons pattern I heard angels sing when I opened it. Oh the marvellous instruction booklet with photos and witty, easy-to-follow instuctions. It was a pattern and a sewing lesson. Joy!
Also, hello youtube, with your wonderful sewing tutorials and sewing vlogs. And hello sewing blogs. I’m learning oodles. Very very happy.
