It's been *sew* long since I've sewn for myself. It seems like every time I do, it's a disaster. However, I've decided that it's time to try again. JoAnns had their Simplicity patterns on sale for 5 for $5 yesterday, so Hannah and I picked out 5 between the two of us. I am going to start very simple - just a pair of pull-on shorts or capris. I think my biggest mistake has been not using the right fabric for the garments I have made. I live just down the street from an amazing fabric store that is mostly dress-maker type fabrics. I need to look there for fabric and I think I will be happy with the end result.
