I’m too much of a perfectionist to sew
I’ve been working on a “easy” blouse pattern and it has become a week (?) of frustration. Looking at the beautiful (in my eyes) fabrics I’ve purchased over a lifetime,I am becoming overwhelmed, knowing I’ll never live long enough to incorporate them into my fantazied wardrobe.
When I do go shopping for clothing I am appalled at the “fit”. I think to myself I can do better. I’m tall and have problems finding the proper length. I hate the idea of some “kid” sewing my clothing in a foreign nation making next to nothing in wages.Surely I can do better, but always sense failure when I try. This has been going on for ten years and have yet to sew anything I would wear in “public”. Can’t understand why I am so hard on myself. Sorry, this is not a self-help group, right?
