What is your favorite sewing task?
I love handsewing. I think I put a bit too much of it in my work because I love it so much. I did learn a lot in college, though, and I do less handwork than I used to now that I can get good results by machine. Zippers for instance, I used to set by hand but now I'll use a machine because it's just so much faster unless it's a super-special project that needs a hand-set zipper. I still do a lot of binding and inside finishing by hand, though. Sometimes there's too much, I have one project right now that's a corset with 33 pieces, each piped, that I need to hand-finish all the inside seams on! That's a ton of hand-sewing, even for me!
Hand-hemming. A blind-stitch hand-rolled hem is one of my favorite things to settle down with. I know. SO WEIRD. But I love it. It's so meditative and rewarding!ReplyDelete
