This is part of my ongoing "meet my" segment...
So today, meet my...sewing room.
Here's the straight truth: I don't like the act of sewing.
I hate reading patterns.
I cannot think in three dimensions.
I have very little patience.
BUT I love dressing up and looking pretty. And I'm poor. And I have basic sewing skills and a lot of fabric (thanks to Lorenza y Gabriella). So I sew stuff.
(I love having natural light in this room, even if it's foot level with the outside)
I have, at any given time, around a dozen projects that I have started but not finished. Yet.
(my reminder to stop feeling guilty for all those unfinished projects)
I have my fabric stored in bins by color, as that's the primary element of any outfit that I dream up.
I no longer attend as many costume events these days, so I'm trying to transition to everyday garb.
I would ultimately love to get a rolling costume cart in here, and keep all my costumes and accessories along with this stuff.
I have vintage costume pieces from my ancestors. I would love to use them, but I'm paranoid about them falling apart. Someday I may use them as display art pieces in my bedroom or something.
(I should be sewing something every day, to tackle those piles of started projects. Ugh!)
