To get into the habit of sewing after work and not feeling drained, I started off with something very simple – a dress for sewing (so I can slip into the magical sewing mode easier).
My patience was really tested with this dress. When I had sewed the rubber band to the waistline and tried it on, it didn’t feel quite right and I decided to move the waistline. But removing the elastic band turned out to be really time consuming (I could’ve sewed several of these dresses in this time).
