15 Things Only A Seamstress Can Understand
Posted in Guest Posts on Monday the 15th May 2017 by Vicki Ormerod
You know when you just love something - that thing you have found that you are so passionate about, but not many people understand? We know what you mean. When it comes to being a seamstress, it seems as if we have our own language. It is almost like living in your own little world that only you and a few of your friends can understand.
As a seamstress, Fabric, sewing needles and our handy-dandy sewing machine are our thing. Just like a nice football is to an athlete, our tools are our prized possessions. While everyone around a seamstress can appreciate a nice, finished project, only the seamstress themselves can appreciate all the work and each and every aspect that actually went into the process of making the completed piece.
There is just something so pleasing about the materials that we use and the feelings that our tools provoke – in addition to the feelings provoked by the hobby itself. A great sewing needle, or the smell of brand new fabric that you have just been waiting to get your hands on - these are the things that only a true seamstress can understand and appreciate. The joy that you feel when you learn how to finish that new stitch. All of these things are so pleasing, but only to a select few.
Other things that we have learned to appreciate as seamstresses are the everyday habits, our do’s and don’ts and the things that we might even forget to do when we get into the sewing zone. Being a seamstress can be a full-blown lifestyle, rather than just an occasional hobby. For those who aren’t that engulfed in the field, it can seem a bit confusing.
