  • No I always put my own flair into whatever I make. I guess that is what 6 years of art school will do to a person. :)

  • Not always, it depends on what I am making. With clothes I prefer to fit the pieces to my body so they look more taliored for me. I also like to combine patterns if there are things I like about one but not another, I will mix them.

  • Usually the first time I make something I follow the pattern and see how it turns out, then subsequent times I may make a few changes. But I'm not as comfortable with sewing yet as I would like to become.

  • Patterns? Whoa there are patterns for stuff? What? That would make my sewing so much easier, then I may actually get the correct amount of fabric. I may have to give this a go.

  • The first time for something I've never made, yes. If I like it and imagine it better with some differences, then I make it MY way thereafter. :)

  • The first time around, yes. After that, I get the basics and go on my own. Same for recipes.
