Let’s Get This Party Started!

Have you ever been shopping only to come across what you feel is the perfect garment? Then, you realize it is the wrong size, you look around the store only to find there is not another one. Of course, the longer you look the frustration sets in.

Well, I have felt this more than once. I have also found that perfect garment, in the right size and a great color only to look at the price tag in unbelief.

Well, with this happening more often as of late. I begin to think about how I could sew instead.

I have been sewing for many years. In fact, here is a photo of me learning to hand sew at four years of age. My sewing skills have grown a great deal since this photo was taken all those years ago. The list of garments and sewing projects have been far more than I can even list here. But, I am sure that I may mention a few of them from time to time in my blogs or even show a photo.

However, after a life change in 2002 I put away my sewing to rebuild a life and finish raising my children. Of course, I repaired a few things here and there, but that was it. In the last few years, the desire to get back into being creative through sewing has been growing inside of me. I have also begun to feel more frustration with the garments in the store with every passing year.

It’s exciting to start this blog sharing my journey as I get back into sewing. I look forward to sharing not only a photo, but how to plan out the garment, information about the fabric, along with some of the techniques used in each garment. I choose the name of my blog Couture & Vino because I am a wine lover as well. So, I plan to share some of my favorite wines along the way. Being a Health Coach and foodie, I believe we all should enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine that fits our palette.

Thank you for joining me here. I really am excited to share great information with you and will answer any questions you have. Your feedback is very appreciated.

Here is to a great 2015!

Happy Sewing!

Patricia
