I love this post and totally agree with your thoughts. As a garment designer/sewist for over 50 years I like to think of myself as a fabric artist. Like Mondo of Project Runway I can’t sketch but I “envision” a garment or look then go fabric/pattern shopping in my stash and create. How lucky we sewists are to be able to indulge in our passion!
Karen – one of the great comments coming out of Karl Lagerfeld’s mouth is: “Designers can not draw, but I vill draw somting for you and keep eet as it will be valuable!!!!” Yes, Karl has an indomitable ego, but the other comment that designers can’t draw – I love it…because we envision!!!!
What a great post! Thank you so much. I think I’ve been lacking confidence, thanks to something my sister said to me. Your words encourage me to keep going.
How I can relate! I ddceeid to take up sewing because I too have difficulties finding things that fit right, or even just that I like. Anyway, my pattern collection continues to grow, and it is only getting worse since I have discovered the world of buying vintage patterns online. I have made myself only two things. And now thanks to your pictures that accompany this post I may have to buy that Vogue 8581 pattern. Sigh. And have you started with accumulating a fabric “stash”?
