Does anyone else suffer from fabric fear. I shall explain…
As you all know I’ve not been doing this sewing lark for long. Along the way I have made a couple of tops, one good skirt and several really nice dresses – still in love with my April Rhodes. But this week I was to start on a new project. Not a skirt, dress or top this was something, well, else. This was a blazer. (OK no prizes for guessing). Late to the party although I like to think fashionably late, I have decided to start on the By Hand Victoria Blazer.

The instructions and packaging are wonderful and there is a lovely sewalong on their website to guide you through, yet I’ve hit a wall. I physically cannot cut out my fabric. So I have cut out the pattern – I even traced it (new skill alert). But I know that I will need to build up the courage to cut it out. So whilst I move my head out of fabric fear mode, please bear with me and next Sunday I will show you
my blazer the progress I have made on my blazer.
So do you suffer from fabric fear? and if you do, what causes it?
