Paint Party Friday: Sewing and all the handy tools

In 2014 I was trying to start and make my own clothes. Back then I wasn't very successful to sew myself a blouse. It just didn't fit my curvy figure and I didn't have the knowledge to adjust the pattern. Some years later, after a sewing class, searching the internet, reading books about pattern adjustment and sewing several test pieces from cheap fabric, I'm about to sew my first blouse. That's exciting and a bit nerve-wrecking, as I don't want to ruin a good piece of fabric. Gladly my Mom has a dress form, which comes in handy for sewing clothes. So here we go with an old fashioned version of a dress form.

  3. How wonderful! I've been creating my own clothing for years. Only recently have I been buying items from the stores. I was self-taught too. Good luck on sewing your blouse--and I really enjoyed your pen and ink, too.

  8. That's a lovely sketch. I'm sure the sewing will work out. If it doesn't as least you can learn from your mistakes and do better next time. Love your cats. They are gorgeous.

  10. Lovely sketch. I used to make clothes for myself years ago and had problems with the fitting, so I stopped making them.
