EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE THRIFT SHOP LISTEN TO THIS SHIT!
seriously guys, listen to this
this sounds like the background music you’d hear in a movie as the camera leads you around a bustling marketplace in the 17- or 1800s and it leads to the sight of a bunch of sailors hoisting and tossing around a bunch of packages on a ship getting ready to set sail for adventureHoly shit
Today, I’d like to talk to all the beginners out there. I know how disheartening it is to be a beginner…
This is a nice little blog post for beginner seamstresses looking to find the motivation to get started in the sewing world. Colette suggests her own patterns to build up skill levels, and while I love that idea, I have said on here a bunch of times (and have had it co-signed by a lot of followers) that her patterns are built for a very specific body type that I dare say not a lot of us have (full in the bust, boxy from waist to hip). You will have to test her patterns out yourself to see if they work for you, and I would say that simple tops are more likely to fit various body types than other garments because of minimal shaping. But give them a try, and if you don’t think they will work for you, you can easily find patterns by other designers that incorporate the skills she is highlighting in this post (projects with pockets/zippers/shirring, etc).
anyway the reason I care so much about this now is because I was assaulted the other day by a sex-positive kink-positive male feminist so you all have a lot of ‘splainin to do for your people imo
Sex-positivism, and Kink-positivism makes it really easy to hide patriarchial values couched in a feminist pastiche. It means that men can act as they’ve always acted, but pretend that it’s politically progressive.
I’m sorry that someone hurt you while believing that he was being progressive. It’s doubly shitty that it’s an attack on your person and an attack on your politic.
