I have been sewing pretty much non stop since May. I have been staying up till the wee hours of the night, going to work sleepy only to run home to my sewing machine and start all over again. What made this addiction come out full swing well I blame Cal Patch- in a totally good way.
Another crafty friend and I took her dress boot camp class: two days, ten hours of making and I can now make a dress from my own measurements and then some. It has been healing. It has been lovely. There is something that happens when I make thing, the rest of the world quiets and I stop worrying.
I have made 7 dresses for myself and walked two people through making a pattern from their measurements. I have also been sewing baby stuff for friends kids but I will save that for another post.
Here are the highlights. Starting with the first one I made in class to the newest that I made last week.
