Did you guys hear the news? I'm a contestant on season four of Project Sewn! To those of you who aren't familiar with the site, here's the gist: six ladies are chosen to sew garments for challenges. The challenges were emailed to all of us at the beginning of this month (April) and in May we start debuting looks each week. The only catch is that there is an online voting process and based on the final scores someone is eliminated after each challenge. Kinda nerve-wracking, huh?
I was super flattered that Liz and Elizabeth (the ladies behind Project Sewn) invited me to participate, but I had my reservations. My first thought was, "I'm not good enough. Why would they choose me?" Ewwww, what a lame attitude! I thought about it for a few days, called Lauren and picked her brain (guys, her voice is so cute and she is just as hilarious as I thought she would be!), and ran it by some of my other friends. In the end I (obviously) decided to do it.
One of my main concerns is staying true to myself. I don't want to make a bunch of clothes that are fancy and cute, but will sit in my closet untouched. I want wearable and comfortable garments that will fit my lifestyle, not elaborate ball gowns. Sorry! However, sewing will still be a challenge for me, as I am making an item I haven't made before and I'm also trying out a fabric type that is new to me.
Project Sewn starts in May and I hope you guys will watch my progress. Cross your fingers for me, throw some pennies in a wishing well, and collect some four leaf clovers in my honor. I need all the luck I can get. xoxo
