There’s Always a Harder Way to Do Something

You know what I say, “Why do something the easy way where there’s a more complicated way to go?”

Today’s project started as the simplest ever, sewing a sample of the Kid’s Sewing Studio’s* Square Neck Top in our new, gauze fabric. This pattern is designed to be sewn by total sewing newbies so it is a prime candidate for quick and easy.  The fabric is stable, yet drapes well, another “this should be totally easy” factor.  And, the fabric comes in great, coordinated colors and prints providing a designer look with no work at all.

I had a pretty strict deadline. I wanted this sample to take with me to Puyallup, Washington for the biggest sewing show I attend, SewExpo.  Simplicity is the keyword.


The first step off the quick and easy path was a simple thought, I wonder how this fabric will embroider?” Then a trip to the embroidery machine and all was lost.  You know what I say, “Why do something the easy way where there’s obviously a more complicated way to go?”



And it came out great! I love this look. So, game over!  Bye bye beautiful print, hello embroidery.


So, what do you think?  Was it worth the time to add the embroidery?  Actually, this pattern is so easy that even with the extra time for the embroidery this went together very quickly.

And now I’d better get back to the sewing machine and finish up the top.  Only 7 days, 20 hours and 12 minutes till I leave for Puyallup.



*Kid’s Sewing Studio is the other company I am a part of.  Kid’s Sewing Studio produces sewing lessons for kids (though they’re so easy even adults can use them).  This pattern is one of the lessons. It’s geared for rank beginners.
