Pathetic?

Is it pathetic that my great big Sewing Accomplishment is to hem a pair of pants?? On the positive side, that does mean that my sewing room is now functional. I found the iron, my pressing clothes, got all the cords managed, etc. I’ll have to pick any easy thing for my first garment. Maybe a knit Jalie top? Those are fun to make an always seem to fit well.

congratulations, great start! I have whole basket full of mending and alteration work, this is for me the dullest sewing task. Looking forward to your next project!

Not pathetic at all! I'm amazed at how quickly you seem to be getting things together. You move alot faster than most people I know:)

Well.. pathetic perhaps, but at least encouraging :-)! You're totally right about a nice Jalie top, that'll get you going without too much risk of getting mired in anything you might regret.

You got your sewing room set up and used it! That is awesome!
Btw, you're famous--your photo made the Pattern Review Top 10 patterns article.

Pathetic? lol, I've had a pair of pants waiting to be hemmed for months and I don't do half what you do. Can't wait to see how your Jalie top turns out. Their patterns are great.

NOT pathetic! I recently attended a sewing retreat... my first task was to hem a pile of pants! After 5 or 6 pairs I tired of it and went on to the fun stuff for the remainder of the retreat.

Great idea for the Jalie top - it's a clever suggestion for those wanting an easy, fast gratifying project. I adore Jalie fit and tee patterns too!

I had to chuckle a little bit. This week I have been so bogged down that the pattern on the cutting table may be getting dusty! I am always amazed at home much you do get done. The sewing room looks wonderful!

Hey, at last you got that done. Moving sucks and you have done it a few times lately. Not pathetic at all!
