I just completed my first commissioned sewing project. I’ve sewn many outfits for friends over the years, but always to give as gifts. I’ve never offered to sew something for someone as a paid project, but this time I said yes. (something has happened to me lately where I keep saying “yes” to things that 6 months ago I would have laughed at!)
Yesterday, as I was finishing up I was so impressed with myself. These longalls had come together beautifully. I couldn’t believe how well the piping had gone in and they flipped just right etc etc etc.
Well, pride cometh before the fall. I sat down to finish up the buttonholes today and alas, my perfect piece is no longer perfect. It’s still totally cute and I still love how it turned out, except for when I look at those shoulders.
But I guess that is what makes it more special than something you buy in a store…hopefully my friend agrees ;)
