for 2015 i made myself two sewing resolutions. over a few posts i will share them as well as a third i'm adding for 2016.

crazy right?Read More
sometimes aunt maggie needs to sew for herself. now in general i prefer to sew for kids over adults for a few reasons:
- kids clothing doesn't have to fit precisely (it's more about drawstrings and elastic waistbands, less darts and zippers). because this part is easier, i can focus my energy on trying new and different techniques, patterns, and fabrics.
- i'm not really a clothes girl, seriously if i could pull off that whole steve jobs uniform thing i would.
- adult clothing takes a lot more fabric and time, which is tough for me to commit to. maybe i should explore that in therapy.
