As with my Blog Resolutions, I believe that the best way to start a New Year is thinking about the things you love and enjoy. So, I’ve decided to write down my sewing resolutions for this year. Will I stick to them? We’ll see! 😉
1. Learn some new techniques
I’m starting to feel more confident with my sewing, so I should try more difficult projects and techniques. I’d love to sew a dress with a boned bodice or maybe a delicate garment that requires some hand stitching!
2. Try some projects “out of my comfort zone”
I really want to sew a coat but I’m so frightened by them! Also, I’ve never sewn a pair of jeans for the exactly same reason and I think that it’s about time to try. And the Closet Case Ginger Jeans look sooooo appealing… 😛
3. Iron the seams!
This is a really bad habit that I have due to my lingerie sewing obsession: you don’t need to iron when you’re sewing lingerie, so I usually forget to iron my other sewing projects too! But ironing is one of the most important parts of sewing, and it really changes the look of the garments, so… it’s a must!
4. Keep my sewing room tidy
I’ve just finished organizing my sewing room under the auspice of Marie Kondo’s famous book! I’ve promised myself that it has to remain that way for the rest of the year. This is the hardest resolution of all!
These are my four sewing resolutions for this year, and I hope I can accomplish them all! If you have any tips for making it easier, please do tell! 😉 And, of course, I’d love to hear your own sewing resolutions!
