The first six months after I bought my sewing machine, I enthusiastically, but unskillfully, had some fun with various fabrics. I haven’t worn any of these garments since then (and I only wore them about once each anyway – they’re all terribly shapeless and unflattering).
So before I start cutting into my fabric stash, I’m going to see what I can do about re-cutting these and reshaping them into wearable items of clothing or accessories (some of the green cotton will probably become the book-bag). Practice pieces, if you will, to try and prevent the destruction of good cloth.
Hopefully this time I’ll work out a few more dressmaking techniques and become a bit more skilled in the creation of a decent wardrobe.
