Chances Taken

I thought that artists, writers, painters, musicians and even olympians were born with a special advantage. Something that makes them experts. After reading and watching documentaries I see the main difference is commitment and repetition over time.

The reason I haven’t sewn outside of design school was my fear that I can’t do it. So strange as I tackle all obstacles without a thought. I guess there is a pressure I put on myself that I procrastinate to the point of standing still. I am 32 years old and have purchased fabric and sewing equipment so many times and allowed them to carry dust.

Now I am helping my sister with her business I have decided that I have to begin. Her dog clothes are made from second hand garments purchased from local charity shops. They are deconstructed and reconstructed into sophisticated dog clothes.

Practicing fashion sketches. So many drafts in the rubbish bin, but I just have to keep at it. Over and over again.
