simple and satisfying sewing
Please be warned, I think I'm going to mumble funnily today.
In recent years, I'm quite happy with what I sew. To me they seem just right on me, although I know that they are not too special or very distinguishing to others.
That said, I remember that I wasn't feeling relaxed this much some time ago. I didn't tell this to anybody until now, but I tell you that I had been said once by some stranger over internet that I was a very boring seamstress and I only generated something similar and tedious. I was fairly discouraged by the opinion. I felt as if I was rated bad and given a serious verdict.
Looking back, the fact was that, I stupidly didn't know what was important and what was not to me at that time. Thanks to the experience, I started considering what my sewing was. Do I have to sew a variety of all kind of clothes for the sake of showing them off to amuse the public to be a certificated blogger? No. Should I keep seeking new techniques for telling everybody that I have mastered them? No. That's wonderful to have something to tell, but as far as I am concerned, it's not necessary to create something spectacle to tell in my sewing.
My main purpose in my sewing is undoubtedly dressing myself to look nice, but not to look wearing nice clothes. (I hope you know what I mean.) I have low self esteem for my appearance and I really and fully need my clothes helping me. I tend to look a bit better in simple, un-authoritative, and well-fitted clothes, so I stick to such kinds of them. Sewing is not necessary if my wishes are fulfilled by retailed garments, but it rarely happens to me in spite of the fact I get what I wish by my sewing so very easily.
In reality, there are some people who can do nothing but blame other people for not providing what they exactly wished, they keep doing it even in other people's blogs, and I came to understand that I didn't like to share such feelings with them soon after the "opinion" incident. My sewing is naturally to be boring, to observe, darlings. And it's more than fine with me, because it's working. I write my sewing, because I am hoping to tell you that sewing is so much fun and also very rewarding for us in each personal way.
And why I blog? I really love to be your sewing friend too. You probably knew it. Phew! I guess I had too much gibberish today. Excuse me!
I love my newest boring outfit, and I reckon I look shining in them...yay...
sewed same as this skirt, lengthened much. Polyester georgette, very light.
Peep shoulder pullover
pattern: Garnet pullover from tamanegi-kobo (PDF pattern)
fabric: Tencel rib jersey, soft, thin, stretches very well, very light grayish beige.
1 smaller size was chosen and also printed out to reduce to 97%, because the fabric I used was a rib jersey and it stretches madly.
I crocheted the belt too.
