Lately, I’ve been in a bit of a creative sewing rut. I could say it’s because I’ve been busy with other life stuff, but really, sometimes I’m just overwhelmed by the sheer number of options at my fingertips. I think too much of a good thing can be stifling sometimes. Step away from the Bloglovin’ feed, Dani. But instead of abandoning the sewing machine until inspiration strikes, this time I’m taking a more proactive approach. I know it’s risky to say (type?) a goal out loud, in a public forum with the Internet as my witness, but here goes:
My goal for the spring/summer is to sew at least one PDF pattern from an independent designer each month.
Whew, that wasn’t so hard. Yesterday I bought, pieced together, and cut out my first pattern. Here are the deets:
Spring/Summer of pdf patterns – May
Brand: Salme Patterns
Pattern: 149, buttonless shirt dress
Price: $8 on Etsy
Fabric: Floral-printed linen blend
I’m excited to get started! Have any of you sewn up this pattern before? Any tips?
