Sewing School!

Hello EveryBody!!!

As the title of the blog says I’m a novice sewer!

Come dice il titolo del blog io sono una principiante…e anche molto direi!

My plan is to get better at this sewing business! I tought about taking a class… but! Here in Rome they are very expensive, they are during working hours, and they teach you basics stuff, like a pencil skirt and a darted bodice, and I already know how to do that!

Ovviamente i miei piani sono di migliorare le mie skills e le mie capacitá. Avevo pensato di seguire un corso di cucito basico….ma… qui a Roma sono molto cari, vengono fatti durante gli orari di ufficio o la sera tardi, e ti insiegnano cose basilarissime come ad esempio la gonna a tubino o il corpetto con due cugni semplice semplice, cose che io so gia faree!

So I wuold like to teach my self to better sew! I have in mind to learn by doing… and to practice what I learned!

Per cui ho deciso che saró l’insegnante di me stessa… e impareró facendo e praticando quello che ho imparato, con un sacco di errori!

Sewing Space Series – Part 1

Hello everybody!

The other day I told you about my moving, and moving my stash… I have to plan the space from scratch!

Until now, like many of us, I’ve always sewn in my living room, with all that comes with that, Named MESS with a Capital M, the need to set the tools,  all the room invaded by sewing materials, my boyfriend ( now husband, it feel so strange to say that!) compalining because i was always loosing pins all over the place! XD But also the need to stop when it was time to eat, to clean in depth all the room and so on….

So now that we have an Estra room, I would like it to be a bit more “stable” and less messy. I really want it to become confortable, and calming, and I want it to reflect how I feel when I’m sewing. And that If i leave my unfinish project on the table, it feels right to leave it there, because is where it is supposed to be…

Hello!

Hello Everybody!

I’m Vanessa, I come from Rome but my passion for sawing started in the Netherlands!

Long story short I had a lot of time to spent and a lot cold outside, so I bought my self a sewing machine! ( very cheap very basic but steady and strong). ( The other reason is that I have a very curvy body… lets simply say that from chest to bottom I have 2 size difference…)

and since then my passion grow!

My mum and my daddy are very crafty persons, my mum used to sew dresses for us and then i tought, why she can and I cannot? So i started and this was only a year ago!

I will tell you all the projects that I accomplished in this year that came out ok and those that didn’t! XD And of course what new on my table!

Enjoy!
