Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

and you had exactly what kind of fabric you wanted, and any other supplies...  as well as all of the time and peace and quiet in the world, as well as the skill, what would you make?

 

I would make coats and jackets.  I have no idea what exactly I'd like to make them out of, all different types of fabrics I am sure... long ones, short ones, yeah....  :)

A whole new wardrobe of clothes!
I would sew dolls clothes every day all day long and experiment with different types of fabrics but I like using stretch denim.

AS A FORMER VICTORIAN ERA RE-ENACTOR, I WOULD MAKING VICTORIAN ERA CLOTHING FOR WOMEN FROM THE LATE BUSTLE  (1880s) ERA.  I NORMALLY HAVE IN THE  PAST EITHER BOUGHT OR HAD SOMEONE ELSE MAKE MY WARDROBE THAT I WORE IN MY PERFORMANCES OR COMPITITIONS.

 

I've always desired to make a wedding dress. :-)
I'd pick out a special female person in my circle of family and friends, think about what would most delight them as a surprise sewn gift, and create the most fabulous thing I could dream up for that person from the best fabrics, trims, etc. so that they would KNOW it was created with love just for them and no one in the whole world would have anything like it  There is nothing more fun than planning and executing a totally unexpected just-for-you project that hits the mark with the intended recipient.  It could be the frilly party dress for a 4 year old whose mother couldn't hope to stretch limited resources to include such a purchase.  It could be a special lap quilt, sleepwear and slippers, or walker/wheelchair "organizers" for someone elderly.  It could be a dressy sportswear outfit for someone who lives in sweats. 

A whole lot of handbags and accessories

I am there now. I don't work outside the house so I enjoy sewing everyday.  I have always had to work and it was hard working and coming home and wanting to sew but everything else took 1st on my to do list. Now I don't have to work (a job) anymore so I sew everything that I have ever wanted to sew. I love to make jacket and coats also so I make them. Through the years I have collected quite a stash so my goal is to get it all sewed up.
