Remember this fabric purchase?
The fabric on the left is on it’s way to being another Kimono Sleeve Dress.
This is always the part where I start to freak out…
I start to see better uses for the fabric - a bias cut really brings out the pattern whereas straight grain is a too linear.
I have second thoughts – will this print overwhelm me?
I almost give up – have I wasted fabric, money, and time?
I don’t sew just for the finished project. I also sew because I love the process.
There are hundreds of ways to use this fabric but you have to choose one.
Maybe the print won’t look good but it’s part of the process – learning what works and what doesn’t.
It’s also the part where I take a deep breath and accept that I’ve already cut the pattern out.
Do you have second thoughts mid-way through a project? How do you keep going when you start to have doubts?
