My First Sewing Project, by mrsmetzknits.
My mother is an AMAZING seamstress, taught by her mother who was taught by HER mother and so on, but I’ve always assumed the sewing gene skipped me. Four Christmases ago, Mum gifted me a basic Elna, telling me, “It can do everything you need”. I procrastinated taking it out of the box until last week. Because sewing is mystical terrifying voodoo.
Anyway, so here is my first project, a Willow tank by @grainlinestudio. I used a linen-cotton blend from Spotlight (balance of “nice but not too nice”) and I learned HEAPS. It’s very far from perfect but I am pretty chuffed I managed to actually turn a piece of fabric into something resembling a piece of clothing! Not convinced sewing is my thing but I’ll give it a crack 🤪
