Let’s take a look at what I’m planning to sew once I done with my final garment in my spring stash busting wardrobe. I have finally settled on the patterns for the gorgeous Italian designer knits I bought last fall. I’m very excited to get back to making dresses after a well needed dress making break, where I focused more on making basics and separates, i.e. stuff that I actually wear on a daily basis. But I love making dresses, so it’s nice to once more add some glam to my wardrobe. And this is what this video is about!
As a side note, I’m very strict about finishing my planned sewing before I start working on a new project. And I often refuse to change my plans once I have settled on a particular sewing project. The last bit is somewhat extreme I’ll admit, but since I started being really rigorous about sticking to my plans I’m actually a happier and more satisfied sewist! I know this sounds super weird, but the sense of accomplishment is just so massive with this approach and I never have any looming projects bogging me down. Not that I don’t get tempted, like right now I just want to sew light garments because the weather is warmer. But sticking to a plan just works better for me mentally at the moment.
This is just how I roll obviously, different strokes for different folks and all that. What’s your take on that? Are you a flexible, mood based, sewist or more of a strict planner like I am?
