I haven't posted because I've been sewing. And fitting. And sewing. And ripping seams. And sewing some more. And contemplating exactly how a lining goes into a pencil skirt vent. And looking up tutorials. And sewing even more. And trying on what I'd worked on only to find that in spite of hours and hours of fitting and ten muslins, the darts were still in the wrong places and the bodice was too tight. Sad day.
I set down my ages-long project to pick up something a little easier. Right now, I'm working on a denim pencil skirt inspired by the first photo in this post and a new scarf I bought in early December. I'm hoping to finish it tonight and post it tomorrow. *crosses fingers* Even this project has taken me longer than expected. I think I'm just a slow stitcher, and I vastly underestimate the time it takes me to do things. I think I may have to take a more realistic look at my resolutions and modify them into something that's more inspirational than aspirational.
