Let The Fabric Do The Talking


When I log into Stictcher's Guild (Artisan Square) I am ashamed to upload photos of my work. However, since this is a (semi) private little blog--my online diary, so to speak, here I WILL upload photos because I am, at least, proud of my efforts to get some things accomplished. And I am remembering some of my sewing lessons of the past. On this simple little shirt, I remembered that I used to stitch in the ditch of the shoulder seams to keep the facings down. So something came to mind that I had learned a long time ago. Not quite ready for Alzheimer's yet!

I think your top looks great! You should post your work on SG - I love to see all the wonderful garments people make and I know many other seamstresses that feel the same way. So please don't be intimidated - I look forward to seeing you (and all your work) over there!

I like it! I think you did a very nice job.
I know what you mean about feeling intimidated. I see what others do on different sites or message boards, and cringe to think of my own work--and I've been sewing for over 30 years. The truth is, I do just fine, so long as you don't look at my work with a big magnifying glass. My guess is that most other seamstresses aren't so perfect, either. Although I do have to send you kudos for having such high standards! I'm sure your work is much, much better than you think!

Your top looks great. This is your blog so you can post whatever! Don't feel intimidated posting at SG, everyone learns from each other.

This is a great top and I can see no reason why you wouldn't share it at Stitchers Guild?!
