When I decided to add a little bra making to my list of sews for Sew the Year February I was nervous it was going to be a bit of a disaster. I mean, I have been putting this pattern off for 2 years, so it must be a hard as I had built it up to be in my head. Even my husband was a bit skeptical that I was sewing a bra.
When Allie of Indiesew contacted me last month about having my Laurelhurst pattern included in her Fall Collection I couldn’t respond fast enough. Once I stopped sending !!!! to my husband I responded with the perfectly professional email saying HECK YES! It’s a good thing we are friends or she might have thought I was a bit crazy.
One of my goals for the year is to really stretch my sewing knowledge and ability. I know each project isn’t going to be a success but I hope to learn from the mistakes and make mistakes better on the next one.
You will see lots of zipper projects this year, I am just rubbish at zippers. It’s sort of funny that my first sewing pattern, Ravenna, has a zipper in it. I have mastered that zipper but on all other patterns I can’t sew in a zipper correctly to save my life 🙂
