Okay, so what do these have to do with sewing, I ask myself.
Uh . . .
Sewing needs and uses numbers in many ways, from describing how much fabric it will take to make that blouse/skirt/dress/coat ~ you get the idea ~ you’re dying to try.
But sewing is also a door through which you can choose to enter or not.
At best, opening the door gets you an item of clothing to wear.
But it also reaffirms your ability to do a number of complex tasks, from estimating materials, to mental design (the right fabric for the item & concept of your vision), to reaffirming your sense of self and your creativity.
At worst, you decide one (or several) of the factors was off, and either overcome or bin the item. But you’ve still gained experience.
How many times do we read it takes failure and successes to learn.
Now it’s your turn, Dear Readers!
- Do any of these doors or numbers inspire you?
- Remind you of a door you’ve opened?
- Or not opened?
Hope you’ll share your thoughts. Thank you!
