Don’t Give Up

A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.
B.F. Skinner

 

One of my goals for this year is to make my own clothes. I gave it my best shot this week, starting with a personalized sewing class at Las Colchas. I purchased the pattern,ย Easy Top and Tunic by Amy Barickman -Indygo Essentials at Las Colchas.

The butterfly fabric I purchased at Las Colchas is beautiful, but maybe not the best choice for a tunic. I look like a moving mass of butterflies in migration.

I received great instruction and guidance during the class. I was able to get most of the tunic finished there. The pattern has great directions.ย  All I had to do when I left the class was set the interfacing for the collar and hem the rounded bottom of the tunic.
Well… I am not calling my tunic a total failure, but I am not happy with the finish I gave to the seams and hem. Also, this was a lot of work for one “easy” garment. I might rethink my goal of making my own clothes. But, I will not give up just yet. I plan to make at least one more attempt at making a garment of some kind.
