My sewing mojo ebbed after the pants-fitting debacle and the ass-awkward plaid skirt mess. I decided to take a month off from sewing. Instead, I worked on mending and improving a few me-made and RTW garments.
I have a bad habit of thinking “good enough” when I am done with a project, even if a few fussy details aren’t perfect. I like to wear things a few times and assess if I need to tweak the fit, change a detail or fix a flub. I also want to be sure, frankly, that I really like something I’ve made before I’ll commit more time and materials to it.
I assessed some recent makes and put a few in a “mending pile”:
This pile of mending should keep me busy for a couple of weeks, by which time I hope the spring weather will have arrived and I can get excited about sewing again!
