Sewing for Me!

I always dream up outfits I want to sew for myself and pin numerous patterns and ideas but it has been a long long time since I have actually sewn anything for myself. I think I am scared that I will sew something and it won't fit or look right and then all that lovely fabric will go to waste! Well it is time to get over that because I now have a pile of fabrics ready to sew for myself and I am actually a little bit excited! OK I am a lot excited!

I ordered these fabrics a few weeks ago from Hawthorne Threads. I order quite a bit from here and have always been happy(in case you have been looking for somewhere to order fabric from!). I always order 10 1/2 yards to make the most of my postage! There is some Joel Dewberry rayons, some quilters cotton and some shot cotton too!

Oh and what am I going to sew? Well first up will be the flat front gathered ladies skirt from Pattern Emporium. You may remember that I made one for Miss Elsa a while ago. Now it's my turn!

I also want to sew myself a few dresses. I just love the warmer weather and being able to wear dresses! Let's hope Tasmania has a nice warm summer this year!

One of the down sides of having a business sewing clothing is most of your sewing time is taken up sewing for others. I am determined to sew more for myself and my family though! Next week I will set aside an evening just for ME sewing! Yay!

  1. Looking forward to seeing you wearing these! There is such a wonderful feeling wearing something you have made isn't there?
