There is an urge stirring inside of me that says, “sew!” Something tells me that despite my lack of knowledge and the fact that according to the all mighty Google no one within 50 miles of here has sewing classes, I will be sewing by this winter. I am constantly inspired by the things I find in Readymade and other sources. I found this stunning dress on a dummy at JoAnn Fabrics and want to make it so badly. But without the sleeves. It would look so much better sleeveless. (Look at me, “I want to make something but I’d better change it!”) And there is this really cool throw pillow in Readymade that is P-E-R-F-E-C-T for my living room. The list goes on and on and on. On the downside I do not currently own a sewing machine and will not be buying a brand new one as it goes against my thrift nature. I found some pretty cool ones on eBay and am considering a second hand Brother machine as my first learning tool. There are plenty of videos out there on the web and I have a good friend who knows ladies that are seamstresses, so my options are limitless, my enthusiasm is high, and I am going to MAKE THAT DRESS!
