The downside of my moderate approach is that some of my sewing projects can drag on forever, especially if there is also pattern drafting involved and/or complicated techniques. One of these projects is the ski jacket I had planned to make for Patterns Review’s Bargainista Fashionista competition. I’ve been so unfocused about this project, that after 14 days all I had to show for it was a failed muslin and a scrapped pattern draft.
But when I woke up on Saturday morning this last weekend I decided to just make it happen, even though it would require me working way into the wee hours of the night. Which is a real struggle for me, as I usually go to bed at around 10 PM and wake up at around 5:30 AM on work days, so I knew this project would also mess up my sleeping schedule.
So the challenge went like this: Could I draft the pattern, cut the fabric pieces and sew the entire jacket in one day? I decided to do a video log on Snapchat of my experiment. So if you want to know the result, here is my video of the sewing crazy that went down this weekend. Or to put it another way, a sewist gradual descent into madness. Enjoy!
