It’s interesting how over the years you start to take shortcuts while sewing.

My current project is a simple white top. While putting it together I’ve noticed how many fundamental  steps have been skipped over. Although the end product may look okay when complete paying attention to the little details will make a big diffence in the end product. This particular pattern is one that can be used with various fabrics through all seasons, so when I start the next one I will make sure to pay attention to the fundamentals.

Lessons learned:

1) Make a muslin
2) Determine if project is going to be underlined or lined prior to construction
3) Do not skip the clipping and trimming

Wish List:
* Dress form
