Hello, I'm Sizun
« on: November 11, 2018, 14:30:09 PM »
Hello, I'm Sizun, from the East of France (Besançon). I'm currently 51 year old and I've been more or less sewing for over 40 years. My mother used to make most of our clothes and this is how I first learnt to sew.
I've spotted some familiar usernames here so I though I might join and say hello.
I like sewing clothes for me, to build a different and comfortable wardrobe. I collect lots and lots of Pinterest pins, and sometimes use this inspiration for real instead of just dreaming  :thread:
I'm quite comfortable at sewing simple dresses and skirts, but things like welt pockets, tailoring and collars are still out of my comfort zone although I've occasionally made a jacket or two.
