Sewing on the next level

Merriam-Webster defines couture as the business of designing, making, or selling fashionable custom-made women's clothing; the designers and establishments engaged in couture; the clothes created by couture.  When I think of couture, I think of beautifully sewn garments that fit well and are made from the best fabrics.  When I was younger my sewing was fast and furious....usually things for my children who seemed to grow a full size overnight or a "jiffy" pattern for myself because of limited time and skills.  That was okay then, but it isn't my current vision.  These days I have more time, patience, and much better sewing equipment.  I place a higher value on things that are of top quality and custom made rather than poor quality, mass produced clothing.  The online sewing community is vast, to say the least, and it has inspired me to treat myself to the pleasures of custom clothing.

 This is my personal journey to take my sewing to the next level.
