a few weeks back i remembered that i had actually written out some new year’s resolutions. i remembered there had been some things on there about baking more (check), reading lots of books (check), and memorizing lots of crazy things (no check).
i found the list and thought about which ones i truly did want to try to accomplish by the end of next month. sewing an article of clothing stood out. i’ve seen the Wiksten tank/dress pop up on sewing and design blogs and decided this would be the one to start with.
today it was finished. most of the cutting and pinning and pressing and sewing was done with little people at my side. combine that with the fact that i’m the world’s slowest sewer, and it took an embarrassingly long time to finish. but now that i have one under my belt i could probably knock one out in less than half the time, and that’s including my obsessive measuring and pinning ways.
