crafty goals

Inspired by Fiona from Diary of a Chainstitcher, I've decided to make a technique checklist. I just made my first trouser-ish project, which was never a goal of mine, but probably should have! I want to give myself specific aims so that I can try to become a better dressmaker (sewer? sewist?), knitter, and crafter. The list will probably grow and change as I figure out what I want skills I want to conquer.
  • Sew a pair of proper jeans. 
  • Full bust adjustment
  • Sew a swimsuit
  • Tackle jersey on a machine
  • Match stripes or some other nap-ish design
  • Sew a tailored shirt
  • Sew a tailored jacket
  • Draft a bodice block
  • Draft a sleeve block
  • Draft a skirt block
  • Learn how to alter a block to make my own designs
  • Knit a big, beautiful shawl for myself
  • Make my own bias tape
  • Sew an indie pattern
  • Sew underwear
  • Insert a real invisible zip
  • Try bound seams
  • Knit socks
  • Sew something with pleats
  • Sew something with pin-tucks
  • Sew something with piping
  • Sew something with welt pockets
