There is something very therapeutic about sewing to me.
I honestly am not sure what it is but the feeling is apparent that I have found my passion in fashion designing.
However, it can also be easily discouraging…
If one little thing goes wrong like the seams don’t line up or the fabric stretches away from the pattern then it seems like you’re at the point of no return. All your efforts have gone to
waste and you tend to question why you’re doing what you’re doing.
It is completely normal to feel this way – I’m pretty sure we all go through this at some point in time. Also it doesn’t have to pertain to fashion design, just with any hobby in general.
But as far as designing goes, the end result is all that really should matter.
It’s one thing to create a product.. But it’s another thing to make it seem perfect.
I like to tell myself that perfect is also subjective – so whatever flaws that you may notice, another may not see it so clearly. (And of course you would be the one to notice the flaws given that you’re the one who worked on the project first-hand.)
Maybe I am being a little hard on myself and expecting too much. Maybe I just need more time, space and practice. Whatever factors are tied in, I have to look at the brighter side and believe that I have a talent that not many have the ability or drive to do.
It’s the little things that can cause a sudden wave of
discouragement for me which tends to carry over to make me lose my motivation.
But if my passion is strong enough I should definitely have no qualms picking it back up.
This love/hate relationship for this passion will definitely be the
death of me.
