I have bad history with self-made garments. I don’t think I’m a bad seamstress. I can put in a zipper or a hem like nobody’s business. But for some reason, the things I make never seem to look right. The projects just don’t gel.
Until this. This is possibly the first piece of clothing I’ve made that looks like RTW (that’s ready-to-wear, for those of you who don’t frequent sewing blogs). It’s also the first piece of clothing I’ve made without a pattern.
Is that the secret? Did I crack the code? Is drafting your own patterns the key to making clothes you actually like? I sort of hope not, because I went crazy at the last pattern sale at Joann’s.
I still can’t believe I made this. I made this. Rock on.
