I’ve been sewing a lot, and I learned a lot through it, and about it. But even though sewing made me more patient and I feel my skills are improving, I’m still too reckless and fast on the (sewing machine) paddle. So I am taking some time off constantly sewing new garments in order to rethink my habits, my goals, my path. There are a few things I feel I should change:
- Using all my scraps and reusing old clothes.
- Refashioning my old me-made items. I already had to let go some of my first me-made items on the move back to Israel. Some were made with a poor choice of fabric when I had no clue what I’m doing. Some are just not practical anymore.
I should plan my wardrobe. As much as I like spare of the moment choices at the fabric store, I should also balance them with planned color pallet and buy more solids, not just prints.
- Organizing my patterns, and alterings the ones I know I should alter. I should also try and document more on Textillia
- Polishing skills. There are a few details I keep doing, and I keep doing poorly. It is time to tackle yokes finish and necklines, both with woven and knit.
