Last week I bought this pattern:
and this fabric (50% off!):
to make a dress for this little girl:
and somehow, I can’t quite bring myself to start it. I haven’t sewn an article of clothing since I was in high school (and the results were always embarrassingly crooked), but for some reason I feel inspired to revisit the whole sewing endeavor. Not in an “everyone’s doing it!” kind of way, but in the “you really need to polish this skill for the future” sort of thing. And that really scares me.
Maybe that’s why the pattern and material have been sitting in the cheery red bag since last week. I can’t bring myself to even open the pattern, let alone cut it and get started. I picked the easiest pattern I could find. I know that it will only take five seams and a hem, and yet, I am unable to move forward.
What do you do when you’ve scared yourself silly over a summer play dress?
