So, me and the Tower have reached a bit of an impasse: I don’t want to sew anything new for myself because I’m still coming to terms with the postpartum weight, and I don’t want to sew anything for anyone else because I’m just not motivated. I tried playing with my serger, looking through inspirational photos, cleaning my workspace, and playing with my embroidery and jewelcrafting supplies (I even bought some new ones). As a last resort, I took a long list of measurements to ease myself into the creative process. I hope that starting with something adjustable–striped bloomers (Simplicity 3677)–will get me off on the right foot.
To make it worse, we’re at that point in the year when I don’t have anywhere to go (not even a belly dance class) *sniff*…for many, many months *sniff, tear*. There aren’t any faires coming up that I’ve made a commitment to attend, although I do have an idea for the Wicked Faire that I should get on paper. I have also been toying with a fantasy coat design that I really want to jump into, but it will involve a lot of drafting hours and a serious fabric shopping trip that I’m not devoted to making at the moment.
I’m sure that once I get the bloomers done (and once the husband fixes my closet), I’ll have the push I need to get back to normal.
Thanks for reading!
