The “Most Worn” Dress

How long have you been sewing: 10 years by hand, 18 months by machine (I used to fear the machine)

Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: For personal growth and strength. To progress in my abilities and discover new talents.

What do you love most about sewing garments: Being in the “sewing zone” brings me peace. It is an escape from my busy life of being a wife, mother, dog parent, daughter, and bridal consultant.

What do you hate most about sewing garments: I get too in the zone and it is hard for me to walk away when I really need to.

What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: Not be afraid to make pants, get better at blouses and to not fear the button hole setting on my machine.

Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Try out for “Survivor” if that fails then my runner-up goal is to be more like Mary Poppins (practically perfect in every way, that is) Or maybe I should keep it realistic…To stick with a hair color and be satisfied with it!

What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: Sew Weekly of course, Grosgrain, A Beautiful Mess, and Adventures in Dressmaking.
