Ok well my wife and I needed a costume for a children’s play at church, sure enough by the time we got to the supply room anything decent had been taken and all that was left was junk. I told my wife “Dont worry im sure we can make our own Hebrew type tunics”… Luckily I found a nativity pattern at a fabric store and borrowed my mom’s sewing machine which has has never been used due to lack of ‘know how’. I decided to embark on this quest without much of my wife’s help due to my self proclaimed OCD and the fact that my wife suggested I would be better at sewing because of my experience in suturing up human beings in the operating room [FYI- I’m just a surgical assistant otherwise i would have paid for someone to make our costumes]… Well after a day I had my tunic which is presentable to say the least… and then well hers came out pretty decent, much better actually… all from tips and how-to’s of the great Internetz… ANYWAYS….
So now that her tunic came out pretty good she has suggested that it would be a good Idea for me to get better at sewing so that she may finally get the types of clothing she wants in the types and colors she wants- rather than go hunting for a specific outfit she has in mind. The sheer thought of not having to follow her from department store to department store looking for a “Yellow Skirt” of which she already has… but of course not that specific shade or fabric or cut… the sheer thought of not having to go to the mall (and the fact that I love her) has me here today… trying to learn all I can… not to mention I also enjoyed seeing the finished product- so partly is my choice- why lie.
so I wanted to introduce myself seeing as how i may have a question or two or three in the near future… also had a question… are the novice patterns here ‘novice enough’ for me? for example…
