Now that Kid's Clothes Week is behind us, and lots of kiddo sewing has been done in the past few weeks, it's time to get some 'me' sewing done, thanks to Selfish Sewing Week. A event hosted by Rachel of imagine gnats that will run the week of April 28th.
I find sewing for myself is never a priority. Maybe because I'm afraid I'm going to screw it up…and the way I see it, you use more material (which costs you more) and that paralyses me a bit when it comes to actually cut into it, afraid that I'll be stuck with something that doesn't quite fit. BUT, I'm trying to get past that this month and dive right into things instead. Rachel is offering a free printable planner to help get you get organized and ready for the week.
I'll be sitting down with mine tonight to try to figure out what I'll be sewing, or at least cutting into, next week. I will be sharing my plan with you when it's done later on this week :) For now though here a few quick goals (nothing really specific)
First thing I want to do is finish my washi dress! All that needs to be done is hemmed and the sleeves. Super simple, and should be super quick!
Second thing, I want to sew something up in some knits. Not sure what, but thinking a nice light summer dress or a maxi dress would be awesome.
Third thing, go through my inspiration boards on Pinterest and pick one or two things two either complete or at least start working towards. Wether them being full outfits or just a source of inspiration for a look. We'll see how things go.
For now, that's a bit of a plan. I will hopefully have more details later on this week about what I'll be doing. Make sure to check back then, plus I have a few projects I'm hoping to get done for the kids as well (if time permits) so look out for those too. :)
