Somethimes I see sewing like a challenge:
using lots of techniques, trying something new
or just testing my own sewingskills.
When I started making this dress
I just needed something quick, something basic.
Because somethimes I just want to sew something simple,
knowing that nothing can go wrong.
While I was sewing the dress,
I started thinking again about challenges, testing, adding
and I decided to add a litlle detail :
a peter pan collar, drawed by myself.
I don’t know why but I am scared about things I draw myself.
Most of the time the result is not really the way I like it.
Nevertheless, I am quite happy with my self-drawn collar!
It gives the dress another finishing touch and a ‘retro’look.
Do you feel the need testing your own skills while you are sewing?
