Just do it

5 Jul

It took me a long time to convince myself that I was ready for more challenging projects and in the end I decided that I shouldn’t procrastinate any longer and… Just do it!

So, with the help of this book by Yoshiko Tsukiori, and with my faithful sewing-machine (a legacy of my mother), I made my very first clothing item…

This top here! I even dared to make a little change as the back should have been closed with some drawstrings, but I preferred to sew it and add a button at the neckline….

The top is actually the one on the cover of the book. 

I think mum would have been proud of me… But also she would have found plenty of defects! 😉
