Sewing for others month

I have had a rockin start to 2013. All the sewing I’ve done sure has kept January from being full of Meh.

There were Sewing Dares, Jungle January, my Star Trek TNG skant and my costume for the Victorian Masquerade Ball, among others.

Now I’m ready for small sewing, sewing presents and in general sewing for others.

I have a list of things I want to make for others and I have all the fabric picked out.

But first, I’m taking a little break from sewing all the things. I’m not putting any restrictions on this break. I’m just kickin it. Sitting on my hands. Resting.

I’ll probably be sketching and eyeballing etsy for lace. So many fun projects to work on.

What do you do to ensure you rest when you need it? Or do you push until total collapse? What do you think it would take to increase your sewing endurance?

*see what happens when I’m “resting”?*

    I usually take about a week off from sewing/anything costume related when I wrap a show or project. In that time off, I usually go through a tv show binge on Netflix and waste a lot of time online.

    Right now, I’m taking a 5 minute break from my crazy cheer uniform sewing. They are like a weird combo of everything you have done for yourself in the last month – sort of a strange merging of your TNG skant and your corset making, hehe. Thanks for the short break!

      I really need a week of Netflix. I think that would fix me. I’m the same. I just need to veg. I did theater too long for that work mentality to leave me. I still push as hard as can be, make a lot work at the last minute (like the buttons I didn’t have time to do on the bodice and so I cut a non-separating zipper and then had to zip up with raw edges. yeah, that was fun), and then crash for a week. I’ll be up to no good very soon. 🙂

      Skant plus corset…interesting and actually I’d love to make a TNG corset. I’ve seen someone modeling them online. Looks awesome.

      Hope your cheer uniforms are going well.

    Yay! Sewing breaks might be more like “sewing research” time it seems. Less production, more information gathering. I am on the hunt for fun elastic-stretchy lace for more underpants making. Let me know if you find a good resource!
