The “Birds in the Garden” Dress
Name & Location: Christi – Atlanta, GA
Blog: Omg ya’ll…I don’t have a blog! But I do upload everything onto Flickr right here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/christipolk So yes, 2012 gotta start a blog.
How long have you been sewing: Though it pains me to think it, at least 15 years. My Granny patiently taught me all the basics, I was very lucky to have such a great teacher.
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I don’t sew enough. I buy (and buy, and buy) fabric and patterns but hardly turn out anything it seems. My husband would probably also like me to make a dent in the huge pile of fabric in our house.
What do you love most about sewing garments: The freedom to make any wild, beautiful, crazy, ugly, insane, amazing thing that pops into my head.
What do you hate most about sewing garments: Set in sleeves. Isn’t that completely ridiculous. I should really get over it and get it right already. :D
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: More sewing of course. And to get better at sleeves. And probably better at fabric selection. My husband swears I have no sense at all when it comes to picking out fabric. Just because a girl picks out a “hospital-gown-like” fabric once or twice…
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Become a hula hoop expert. And to finally stop cutting my hair off.
What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: Gertie, Lladybird, Handmade Jane, Sewaholic.net,honestly this list could go on and on so I’ll stop there.
