Why Sew?

Happy Sunday!  Todays topic (Why sew?) Why not sew what are you doing all day anyways watching tv lol I'm kidding. Today a wanted to talk about why I sew. Theres many reasons that I sew but I'll just name a few to start. Number 1 for me is I enjoy not blending in with everyone and creating something yourself can make you stand out from the crowd. I don't make everything I wear and I love stores like H&M, Forever 21, and Akira here in Chicago but everyone else loves them too so it's not hard to spot your outfits on others. Another reason I sew is for necessity I'm a tall girl at 5'11" so sometimes I can't find things that fit the way I want. For instance maxi skirts and dresses which I looooooove and lived in this summer not all store brands hit the floor on me and I end up looking weird. Lastly I just really enjoy being creative and creating something that I can be proud to say I made. It's a really cool feeling when your out and about in one of your pieces and someone stops and says love your dress whered you get it and your reply is oh thank you I made it myself ;) 
* Below I've included a pic of a maxi dress I made this summer , also some fabric I will be working with over the next few days
