How long have you been sewing: Well, I learned in middle school and have sewed off and on since then, but consistently with purpose starting last year.
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: The Sew Weekly is a huge inspiration, and I want to continue to sew consistently with purpose this year. Also, being a contributor will force me to step up in the photography/styling, which I’ve been pretty lazy about.
What do you love most about sewing garments: Making exactly what I want.
What do you hate most about sewing garments: When I’ve worked really hard on a garment that is just not working. Seeing how others get over those kinds of failures on The Sew Weekly has helped me a lot.
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: My guiding principles are to use what I have and try new things. Above all, I want to learn to fit well. And make a few pairs of pants.
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Write a novel.
What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: The Sew Weekly, The Coletterie
