It was about the 26th of April when I finally decided to learn a new skill. It was something I had kept in mind for the longest time and I finally had time. After spending a little bit of time on YouTube I noticed the same suggestions a few times. After a while, I decided to actually to check it out. To my surprise, I fell in love and I got a sudden surge of inspiration. Not mention I was bursting with new ideas. My mind was like dandelion seeds dropping ideas. I thought to myself finally I have found the motivation I needed from seeing such beautiful clothing. Just like the clothes I always look for in stores but never find anything similar.
At first, I just began by watching a few videos for more reference and more knowledge because I had never tried to sew anything myself from patterns. Even though I wanted to try to make dress straight away I had to contain myself, not because I wasn’t willing to dedicate myself to researching it adequately. But because I wouldn’t be able to purchase the materials I needed, as shops were closed and not all places were delivering. So what I did was go shopping from a local shop that was still open and bought what I could.
It’s something that when I start I always have to focus or else one stitch ends up crooked, bigger or even in the wrong place. I like to keep it as even as possible. If you guys didn’t know there are a lot of free resources available online through https://archive.org/details/keystonejacketdr00heck (page 82 and 83) this one specifically is the one I used. From here I got the pattern for making the Victorian walking skirt. What I made was a Victorian-inspired walking skirt because I had never sewed before.
I am ready to dive into a new sewing project as soon as I can decide what’s the next clothes piece I want to add to my wardrobe. With that having said, I think the best option is a blouse because since I have made a skirt, why not make a matching blouse to go with it right? But I also want to try yet another thing, decorating it by hand embroidery. I will keep you updated on sewing projects I accomplish.
Anyways thank you for your visit it means a lot to have you come over and spend some time with me. I wish you a great weekend full of joy. Until next post and I’ll see you then.
