My Sewing Mistakes, and how I learned From Them

SEWING.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m going to be honest, I make a lot of mistakes. Not the usual amount, but a lot more. If I’m not in the right head set or if I’m too tired. And it’s really easy to make mistakes especially when sewing. Usually, I make the most mistakes when cutting fabric. No matter how many times I measure and measure, there is always a chance for a mistake.

HERE ARE SOME MISTAKES I’VE MADE AND HOW I’VE LEARNED FROM THEM!

(most of these are pretty recent)

I tried to make an long sleeved peplum shirt. My mistake was that I made it way to small and the fabric wasn’t stretchy. Next time I’ll probably add a lot of extra space!

Ignore the bright typography. I took a pair of big pants and downsize them to shorts. This almost pair of shorts, was not fitting right at the crotch seam. The problem with this one was that I didn’t seam rip it all the way and expected the already made pants to fit me. I should have measured the pants better.

Most of my mistakes were from taking things to fast. I didn’t think them through all the way. Obviously, I learned from all of these many many mistakes. I hope you enjoyed this post!


HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!

    A while back I made a regency dress from a silk velvet I had hoarded for at least 10 years. I had 2.5 yards of it to squeeze into a dress and I was paranoid about having enough… and then I forgot that the bodice side panels needed to mirror one another….
    Turned out OK but that was a terrifying moment and I cut EVERYTHING with fabric folded now so I don’t have to think about it.
