a walk down memory lane
so as I said I am visiting my mother sleeping in the room that used to be mine, and some stuff in here really still is mine. I had a throwing away day today and thought of going through that stuff I didnt look at for quite a while and decide which is important enough to keep and what to throw away… even though I tend to collect things, if everything starts getting filled with stuff I feel all that possessions are more of a burden and then I reduce what I own quite a bit. while I was going through that old stuff, I dont need anymore and just keep for memory, I found this:
when I was 13 I got into my first sewing class, took me a while to convince my mum I really wanted it too and learned sewing by machine (i was always crafting and trying to create things before too) but this is my very first sewn project I could actually wear: pants. Of course they are to tiny now, but its my first pants;)
That the second item I sew, a blouse. That was still done in the course and my next ones all got thrown away a long time ago, because trying to learn more by myself I messed up quite a bit
while my graduation from highschool I taught myself how to knit and in the following summer I knitted my first sweater… at the beaches of Kreta, Greece.
in my first year in fashion school I entered a design contest with a fairytale-theme. My fairy costumes got 3rd place.
well I builded a big mountain with projects like those from fashion school, lots of drawing, cutting and glueing there. this is a selection.
well tomorrow I’ll travel back and next on my list are short tutorials on how to change up patterns if your chest and your waist are sizes apart. I’ll show you some different approaches. so keep tuned.
keep sewing and smiling
