I get emails fairly regularly asking where I learned to sew.
Truth? I got put in a sewing class in 9th grade and CRIED to try to get out of it. The teacher had no sympathy and I was stuck.
If I can find the first dress I ever made, I’ll post a picture. It’s hilariously 80′s (i.e. you cinched it with a big old belt).
The rest of it? I’ve just kind of made it up as I go.
My friend Sabra, aka one of the funniest people I know (for sure the funniest person I’ve ever taken a road trip with), has started a new blog called How to Sew a Straight Line. I’ve ordered a book and I’m going to play along.
Maybe I’ll see some of you there.
