Ideas = Lack of Sewing
I did some sewing last night people, but not enough. Between two lengthy phone calls and different ideas for Katie’s dress that I was contemplating, all I ended up finishing was interfacing the facings and stay stitching the neckline and armscyes.
I love sewing. Really, I do. And I love how sewing my own clothes gives me so much control over the outcome. I love having total control. Oh, did I just write that out loud? The little design decisions you make along the way make each garment one of kind and completely of your inner vision. But sometimes all these design decisions that need to be made slow me down and take me out of my sewing zone. Do any of you ever feel like that? Or are you the type of design person who revels in the choices? I tend to get stymied by them. I love making a decision but not 20 of them one right after the other. It’s exhausting and distracting from the task at hand.
Ok, enough of my whining. Here are some of the choices right now…
False ribbon placket with buttons
Ribbon empire waist
Plain, no ribbon trim
And the final option (not pictured) would be some patch pockets at waist or hip level with the green ribbon trim. Lindsay T gave me the idea by way of the link to Lily Pulitzer dresses she sent me this morning.
Which do you prefer? I think I know which is my favorite, but I am still curious to hear your opinions.
Also, tell me! Do you revel in having many design choices to make or do you just want to get on with the sewing already?
Happy sewing everyone!
