Sewing Slump

I've been in one of those sewing slumps were nothing I make ends up being presentable. My last 3 projects haven't turned out as planned and while I learned from each one, I was getting frustrated that I had nothing to show for my work. This morning I was rambling around my closet and saw a bunch of dresses and tops that I've made over the last couple of years. I had forgotten how many successful projects I have hanging in my closet so I took some time to drag everything out, try it on and appreciate what did go well. If you ever get crabby that things aren't coming together as planned, I highly recommend taking the opportunity to find inspiration from projects that did work. It made me remember all the time, effort and creativity that went into each piece not to mention the seam ripping, problem solving and modification to make it perfect. It gave me the motivation to hit my stash and get crackin' again. Ironically enough, I started 3 projects today and all of them are turning out!

Nice! I still love that Target sheet (tablecloth?) you used for the two dresses. Can't wait to see your new projects!
