Yay For Sew Weekly… Bewitched Beignet
Name & Location: Stevie, Brighton UK
How long have you been sewing: 5 years
Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I have followed Sew Weekly for over a year now and I have met some fantastic people through it. The challenges are imaginative and fun and really push my creative boundaries. I sometimes need that little push and this was the perfect way to better my skills!
What do you love most about sewing garments: The freedom to dress myself as an individual, to be inspired by others and to be truly happy with the fit of the clothing I wear.
What do you hate most about sewing garments: Sometimes the time consuming factor of sewing gets me down. I am a naturally impatient person but getting a good quality garment is important so I do try hard not to rush.
What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: I’d like to improve my skills as i’m sure everyone does. But I’d also like to have wardrobe that harmonises and works as an entire entity.
Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: I would like to finish my degree in Fashion and Dress History and obtain my first graduate job.
What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: This is tough as I follow hundreds! I think my complete favorite is Patty at The Snug Bug. She has a talent for making fabulous, colourful clothing that fits beautifully and enhances her wardrobe.
