During my years in the fashion industry the most common comment I got was probably:
“ I wish I could sew!”
I still don’t understand why there are so many people who think they cannot sew:)
I´m convinced that most of us can put together a small blouse, skirt or top. It’s actually just about being a little bit brave for a moment and to welcome that childlike sense of creative chaos. Just to see what happens….
Maybe the seam will be straight or maybe it will be totally crooked:)
The most important thing is that you have started!
Step 1 – START! Pat yourself on the back, and welcome the adventure.
See the charm of a homemade skirt just like you would with a jar of homemade marmalade! Because then, ladies and gentlemen, it can only get better! Soon, each stitch will be a little easier every time you sew and suddenly the feeling of resistance and low self-esteem will be gone! Instead, you will feel proud and brave. And with your back straight, you will hear yourself saying:
“YEAH….Check this out! This, I´ve made myself …. And I know …. it doesn’t even show!”
And remember – Coco Chanel herself must surely have started somewhere:)
