Heya, my little sunshines!
I promised you a while ago, I would show you a tiny bit of what I've actually sewn together, as I felt very proud it wasn't me, but an actual piece of fabric. But to be honest, same as with my sketches, I grew very insecure about them and feeling like that, same as sewing, is a new territory for me.
BUT, as you are so supportive and understanding and, furthermore, encouraging, I have to show you what has come out of those many hours hitting, swearing and crying beside my sewing machine.
Looking at these, I will always know this was how I started to learn about stitches and garment production and with all those tiny mistakes, all those many hours unthreading and sewing again, it is me learning the things I love, and not coming off as a person which knows everything (in small groups of people, we may refer to these kind of people as smartasses :D ).
Some of you, that might facebook stalk me (I know you are out there, little investigators), may have seen some of these photos already, as I may have been too tempted at the start to show them to everyone. I have to say, I love, love this skirt, not because it has a remarkable design or anything, but because it is my...first...wearable...garment... WOAH! and the fabric bag in 6th grade doesn't count.
So, I hope you guys like it too, and find it having, somehow, a piece of me in it.
(Ouh, and these little study things may look awesome and everything, but let me just tell you one thing - I spent the whole weekend hand attaching them, where by the end my nails were ruined and I coulnd't feel my fingers anymore. :D Just a little fashion sacrifice)
Sooooooo.... the first semester was over, I and hundreds of other first years went home happy, able to put these past adventures behind us. BUT then came the second semester, in which we had to make a pair of trousers in a way shorter time - logic...
So the swearing, throwing any kind of objects around and crying, begun again, but i have to say, I again, managed to sew not me to the sewing machine, but the actual trousers together. Just think of that!
So here is my amazing Estonian friend, turned into a dude, dancing around in my trousers.
So here it is, little adventures of a beginner! I hope you guys liked it, hope you do not think I am a total lamer by showing you these and hope that wherever you are, you have your goals at being better at something and the little difficulties you have to face, are not stoping you!
Stay safe, stay healthy and wear warm socks! Once again...
