Learning How to Create Patterns Is Discouraging

I haven’t sewed or attempted to create a pattern in four months. Why? No idea. Well, no, that’s not true. I spent hours crafting my first pattern from scratch and the damn thing didn’t fit. I don’t know what I did wrong but I didn’t feel like figuring it out. I’m pretty sure that experience left me feeling a little discouraged.

I’m ready to crack open my books — “Reader’s Digest New Complete Guide to Sewing” and “Pattern Making for Fashion Design” — and commit to doing the work. I really want to make my own clothes, this year, so this is my accountability post. I will redo my first pattern and post about it on Saturday.
