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
