I started sewing a year ago. It was a tank top pattern (inspired by this awesome girl on you tube that talked about how to take your measurements and develop a pattern) and white knit. I Had no idea that there was a grain and my 50/50 chance of getting it right did not go my way. It gave me a puzzle to solve and I realized that I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I read for three weeks. I studied the Mood product page to read and re-read the fabric types. I went to the box stores to feel every bolt I could get my hands on and started buying some samples. I did not know at the time that my second project was utilizing some of the hardest to sew material you can get….a tissue weight stretch knit. I spent almost three days trying to understand layout and cutting. I sprayed a couple of pieces with stabilizer and must have gone overboard because they were hard as a rock. I am going to attach a picture of this, first shirt since it makes me smile. I really have come so far and I love that I have so much more to learn….
