The “2011 Favourite” Granny Smith blouse
My name is Adrienne and I currently live in Granada, Spain, where I am writing a Master’s thesis about online sewing communities. I myself have been sewing seriously for three years, and blogging about my projects at www.allstyleandallsubstance.com.
My New Year’s resolution: spend less time thinking about sewing, and more time actually sewing. Nothing gives me quite the sense of “flow” as creating a garment. I also love the mix of technical skill, creativity, meticulousness and spatial logic it requires. I look forward to the extra motivation from the Sew Weekly Challenges will bring.
What do I find most challenging about sewing? It is the moment when you realize — after trying on your first muslin — that your pattern is going to need some major adjustments. It happened recently with the Colette Rooibos dress.
My biggest non-sewing goal of 2012 is to run a marathon in 4 hours 15 minutes.
Finally, these are a few blogs I like to read: Tilly and the Buttons, Did you make that?, Sewing Odyssey, Handmade Jane, Dibs and the Machine, NattyJane Sews, Petite Josette.
