I recently attended a 3-day sewing retreat. In the 3 days, my table mate made 3 shirts, 2 pair of pants, and a jacket. In the same period of time, I made 3/4 of a top, trying multiple collar designs, neckline shapes, appliqués, sleeves, etc. I think I am obsessive. Nothing like a perfectly set-in sleeve or an interesting shaped bound buttonhole. It is the details that turn me on. I like drama too, but the unusual, not big. I call it "made-you-look style." I love to wear hats. That said, I strive to be better at thinking outside the box.
