My last blog post went over like a lead balloon! Now I know that black track pants don’t merit too much excitement, and maybe you weren’t in the mood for talking about sewing for your period and menopause, but surely you have stories about the most embarrassing thing you sewed and wore out in public, no? So I thought it was worth repeating part of what I posted last week, because Helena and I want to feature your story on the Clothes Making Mavens podcast!
We decided to revisit the “most embarrassing make” question — you know, the thing you sewed and wore out, maybe even proudly, but in hindsight it was pretty awful — as well as the make you’re most proud of. So why don’t you hit record on the free Voice Recorder app on your phone, answer these questions, and send them in to clothesmakingmavens [at] gmail [dot] com? Or you can call our voice mail and leave a message: +1-401-64MAVEN. And don’t worry, if you stumble over anything, I’ll edit it out — you’ll sound great!
1. What’s your name and where we can find you online (blog, instagram, etc.)? If you don’t have an online presence, that’s OK.
2. What’s the most embarrassing thing you sewed and wore out in public?
3. What is that special garment you sewed that you’re most proud of?
4. What’s on your cutting/sewing table right now, or a project you’re planning that you’re excited about?
By the way, here is my most embarrassing make, that I actually wore to WORK:
Aside from all the wavy, wrinkly hems (that fabric was a bitch to sew), I actually thought this was a cute, sporty-looking dress, so I *thought* I was rocking it like this:
…when really I looked more like this:
Wah-wah-wah. I shouldn’t have given this to Goodwill — it might have made a good Hallowe’en costume!
And here’s another embarrassment, but I didn’t actually wear this one out in public. Let’s call this one my biggest fit disaster. I blogged about it under the title I Thought I Was Sewing a Dress but it Turns Out It’s a Bathrobe with Storage Compartments for Groceries.
So now you gotta tell me: what’s your most embarrassing make you wore out of the house? And answer those other questions up there, too! You can leave a comment below, or visit clothesmakingmavens.com/be-on-the-podcast/ to see all the different ways to leave us a voice recording. Can’t wait to hear from you!
