I have often read that one of the benefits of sewing your own clothes is that you can create the exact clothes that you like - that you can present yourself to the world with your style and in the way that you want to be seen. While I agree that this is true, it assumes that you know your style and what is going to look good on you before you are able to put it on and try it out. I don't think I am the only one, but I am here to confess that I often don't know what is going to look good on me, or what I am going to love before I try it on. Then there is the difficulty of picking the fabric, because even if the pattern is a great fit for me, have I picked the fabric that is really going to bring my vision to life? I admit it, in reality, I have many sewing fails!
But Vogue 9363 is a huge sewing success for me!
