Am I the only one???

2009 February 24

Am I the only one who thinks, “If I sew X pattern, I will look exactly like the X model in the picture/drawing when it’s finished.”  And how long does this affliction last?  Until the first garment is done?  Or is this delusion a life long battle for a sewist?

Can I please look like this please when I make this dress?  v1089

    Nice to find your blog! Thanks for visiting mine. I just began sewing a year ago. I did find an instructor at a local fabric store. She has been a great instructor and has helped greatly. Blogs are great for learning,but for me, anyway, it helped to have a specific project and a teacher to guide me! You can do it!
