Feeling horrible and getting nothing done.

I did, however, teach myself to weave beads on a loom today, which is kind of cool.

a bit of help
Hello,

my name is Adam and I've sort of drifted into your journal from Jen's (xxxaltheaxxx). I was wondering,
since you seem to be very adept at sewing and clothing
construction where would you send a beginner to start.
I've found me career calling in life and haven't sewn
since my mother had me do it by hand so long ago...

thanks,
adam
p.s...don't feel too bad about not getting anything done...I've been at work here for like 3 1/2 hours and
I'll I've managed to do it browse the net.. ;)

Re: a bit of help
:) Well, that would depend on what you're planning to do. Most of my sewing of clothing has been for historical costuming, and the techniques aren't necessarily the same (for example, darts did not exist during the periods I've sewn for so fitting had to be done differently if at all).

But I'm actually only semi-adept when it comes to sewing garments--I'm all right as long as I have a pattern, and I can tweak the patterns a bit, but I've known folks who make their own patterns, or at least are able to make substantial adaptations to commercial patterns. Very impressive.

What sort of career are you planning?

Neat--theatrical costuming, historical costuming?

Thanks :); I spent a lot of the day on the couch with a heating pad, but I seem to be a bit better now.
