My Sewing decision making angst is growing and growing. I don’t know if any of you experience this but I am having a serious overload of thoughts, decisions and ideas about what I want to sew next, why I haven’t gotten very far on the projects that I want to sew and which fabric should I purchase next to complete all of these projects!
When I started sewing in January, I had not yet enveloped myself in the sewing world, I had not yet discovered all of the wonderful hashtags that I can look up at anytime in Instagram to gather inspiration and ideas on the projects that I was working on. I simply went to my local Joanne’s and bought my pattern and fabric, went home and worked on that project and that project alone. I did not know then about all of the wonderful knits that I could get at La Finch Fabrics and the beautiful double brushed poly that I could get at Sly Fox Fabrics. I didn’t even know what DBP was back then.
This was when I saw this sewing thing as just a hobby to fill my free time, but now it has turned into a blog and a passion that I want more and more of. Sewing has helped me tremendously with my anxiety that I have struggled with most of my life and has given me the confidence and ability to accept and embrace my mistakes and to see these mistakes and pitfalls as wonderful opportunities to grow, learn and get better at this thing that I love so much.
Additionally, the online sewing community is truly the most supportive and uplifting group of people that I have ever come in contact with online. Instead of hating on each other, there is encouragement and positivity and it has been incredible meeting and sharing with my online #sewcialist friends!
Here is what I want to sew in the next couple of months if possible. I will leave all of the links to these amazing lovelies down below.
Belldone Dress by Deer and Doe: This pattern is everything I want in a dress! The construction is perfect and that back, wow!
Tilly and The Buttons Agnes Top: The version with the gathering on the sleeves makes my heart stop every time I see it. Yowza!
Colette Rue: I love the overly feminine shape to this dress, I want to make this in a light blue seersucker with blue piping. I absolutely love those beautiful pleats!
Sew Over It Susie Blouse: I actually have already bought this PDF but I am waiting to find the perfect fabric with the perfect drape. I’m thinking Swiss dot cotton with a contrasting collar?
I could really go on and on but, you know at some point I have to start on these projects and where do I even begin?…
Does anyone feel my pain? LOL
Have a beautiful day!
