I know I’m really late on this but whatever, I just started this blog yesterday! I was scrolling through Instagram sometime in the past year when I came upon a girl wearing a choker and I kind of freaked out. The 90’s were coming back and ever since then it seems like it’s been taking over.
I was in elementary in the 90’s and still wearing Rugrat’s jumpsuits but I wanted so badly to dress like the older girls. I loved the chokers, short jean shorts with over-sized sweatshirts, plaid everything, and chunky platforms. While I didn’t get to wear most of what I wanted because I was a CHILD, I did still have a pair of chunky platforms going into middle school and was made fun of on the first day of school. Jokes on them because that’s what everyone is wearing now!

While I don’t feel like I have any particular style, the 90’s is my absolute favorite fashion decade and something that I’m currently trying to incorporate into my handmade wardrobe. I’ve collected several patterns over the past few months that I’m hesitant to start on because I’m not sure if I have the skill set just yet but I can’t wait to get started.

While listening to the latest Seamwork podcast, featuring Marie of A Stitching Odyssey she said something that really made me think about my hesitancy with sewing. Marie spoke about her first sewing class and how she just jumped in eagerly without knowing a thing and was willing to trying everything without hesitance and wished she could still do that.
I can relate on so many levels (although I haven’t been sewing nearly as long as her) because I find myself constantly obsessing over the easy, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels on pattern packaging. “Should I make 6 easy patterns before I move to beginner?” “Should I then make 12 beginner patterns before I move to intermediate?” I have this inner dialogue constantly about so many aspects of my life but I really want to make an effort to make sure this doesn’t get in the way of sewing. I want to try as many new patterns and techniques as I can and hope this will be a never-ending learning process.
I just gonna do it.
