One of my 1st attempts and my studio :)

(<---awful, isn't it? I had great hopes for it, just didn't know what the f*^% I was doing.

This is my little workroom, which is now much more cluttered, haha. I sooo need more space, which I hope to get when we move (cross your fingers!) I have dreams of having a big, airy loft with a couple of giant tables to spread out on and big windows that look out on something beautiful. However, I'll settle for more space and the tables.
It's amazing how much this little clothing making venture has improved my patience. My first attempts were #epicfails in large due to my impatience at cutting, sizing, and/or sewing. I was always in a hurry to get to the finished product, with disastrous results. You should have seen my husband's face when I showed him the first couple of "garments" haha!!

Another big lesson is the fabrics themselves. I am a fan of stretchy soft stuff (hello, I'm a dancer) but they are the hardest ones to sew! Especially when paired up with a non-stretchy fabric, like denim. They look so good together, but damn.
