I recently decided to work my way through Breaking the Pattern: A Modern Way to Sew in an effort to improve my sewing skills. Something I’m trying to teach myself is patience. I know a lot of my sewing projects are ruined by my impatience, as I rush to get things done. I know it can be an incredibly rewarding skill. I recently made our Renaissance Faire costumes (though not the pants), and it made me realize that I need to and want to dedicate more time to it.
So I’ve decided to sew myself a whole capsule wardrobe. I think this should take me several months but I’m taking my time.
It’s a useful and rewarding skill, and I hope to one day get to the point where I’m wearing nothing that I didn’t make.
