Have you ever thought about how you rate your sewing or crafting skills? I do all the time! When I jumped back into sewing after about a 15 year hiatus, I knew I was beyond beginner, and advanced beginner but wondered what new techniques, new fabrics, new fitting issues had arisen due to a 15 year older body so I rated myself as intermediate.
Well, that was almost 5 years ago. I would say that I have improved in fitting myself and others tremendously. I would say I've brushed up on some skills I had only partially attempted in previous years. I have become better at taking risks with fabric and with styles. I do however still have the occasional flop that's due to either a poor style choice, poor fabric choice, or poor execution due to sloppiness. Does anyone else occasionally experience this?
But....does that make me an intermediate or an advanced sewist? I wonder....
Just a note, I am NOT looking for compliments. I am merely sharing thoughts. I do know what I will or will not do with my sewing level at the beginning of 2017 on SPR. I am wanting to know how you all have come to your personal conclusions regarding your sewing ability.
Will you please share your thoughts?
I'd love to hear them!
