So where to start…I’m incredibly gorgeous, thirtyish and a perfect size 10. All of the clothes I sew turn out exactly how I imagined – no fitting problems, no design problems and I never have to unpick anything! I have heaps of spare time to plan my sewing and work on new projects. There are also no unfinished projects hiding in my cupboards.
PS. My sewing room is always immaculate
Now here’s the real story…
I have actually been sewing for quite a long time. I can’t really remember where I first learnt to sew but I think it may have been on an ancient Singer sewing machine that I bought for about $20. My sewing skills steadily improved over the years, but then like a lot of women life took over and I found myself for some unknown reason doing a lot less sewing and a lot more random stuff that was nowhere near as satisfying. I began to find it really easy to start sewing projects and then leave them unfinished or find flimsy excuses go off on other adventures. End result – lots of patterns, fabrics and sewing do-dads but also lots of unfinished garments and half empty feelings of dissatisfaction.
So I really started this blog to keep me on track with my sewing. That’s why the blog is called Sew it up buttercup. It’s really a message to me to just get on with it and stick with the program.
My intent is for this blog to help improve my sewing, but I think it’s also nice to have a little sewing refuge to escape to when the world gets too gloomy 😃😝😍
