So, this sew-along malarky. It’s my first you see, and I was thrown into a bit of a tizz by Karen’s post prompting us to cut out our pattern pieces. Why was I thrown into a tizz you ask your self? Well, I was still daydreaming about which fabrics I might use. The very day of the post I was still considering buying new or new-to-me material. However, I looked deep into my stash-soul and decided that really I had some material that would do. In fact I needed to decide RIGHT NOW because it was required that I got my bony bottom into gear.
So, after the initial panic, I am definitely all for the virtual prompting the sewalong provides. Left to my own devices I would still be gazing longingly at material, dreaming of a myriad of potential pyjama possibilities. As it is, I am aiming for a silky and sophisticated set of sleepware. I sure hope that I can meet my mental expectations. Thanks again Karen for organising the sewalong, I’m not sure that I would have joined another more complex project!
