Firsts

In honor of my first blog post, I'd like to share my first sewing project, completed about 6 months ago.  Plus, I figure when I get to posting new stuff I'll look really good in comparison. ;)


I chose my first project, a "sew easy" pattern from Simplicity (found here ).  Luckily the busy print hides the mistakes but up close.... it's bad.


I didn't really know how to gather, so I just kinda did it as I went along, so it's kinda pleat-y and weird. I don't really know how to describe this, but I also managed to catch more fabric in the seam than I meant, so the seams look really weird.  In a fit of frustration, I yelled "It looks like I'm drunk!"  My then roommate cracked up, and since anytime I messed up on anything I was the "drunken sewer" or the "drunken knitter".  She since moved to Boston and whenever I tell her I made something she asks if it looks drunk. As I blog along, I'll include some more recent FOs that actually look sober. :)

  2. I forgot about those! I have to get a picture. But they aren't as hilarious now that they have an elastic waistband.
