But mistakes and all I still LOVE SEWING with my whole self and I sew or do something sewing and/or crafty everyday….
now ever since got my Vogue Sewing Book I’ve looked at it every single day….I read and review the sewing techniques and terms over and over…it helps me so much when I’m sewing because I know exactly what to do when I have any sort of issue when sewing….hardly anything stumps me nowadays when I sew….the solution to any issue immediately pops into my head….Its friggin’ cool man!…(super happy sewing face)
okay now one of the cooler sewing principles I’ve meant to teach myself for at least two years now is draping….Draping is essentially the manipulation of fabric on a dressform without cutting the fabric….the fabric looks like something wearable even before its sewn….When I watch Fashion Star, Project Runway, and other sewing and fashion shows the designers do such awesome stuff with fabric even before the scissors action….I always call myself draping something but the results aren’t at all what I have in my mind…But this afternoon I actually draped something I might be able to wear!….It tripped me out too!….you know sometimes stuff just works and sometimes it so does not….
Since I was just messing around I grabbed some sparkly, stretchy fabric out of my stash and started hanging it on Pink Cookie….its almost like it made itself because the fabric has such pretty, flowy style…..If I decide to sew it up I’ll have to cut armholes and finish the neckline and hem…its basically a super easy, stylish throw and I kinda like it; a lot….
Have you been teaching yourself any new sewing techniques?…What sewing references do you go to when you’re sewing?….I have a few pictures to show off my skills….hehehehehe…talk to you good people soon….
