Suddenly you find yourself in a position where you can make a pretty thing or two! You are probably adapting patterns, possibly even pattern making your own, not only to create the perfect garment but also the perfect fit that makes its wearer smile (that's not to say that there won't be the odd failure along the way - that is part of learning right!!). Not only have you gained a new skill, you have gained a new form of escapism and enjoyment. Bring it on!
Why learn to sew in today’s modern world? Clothes are cheap, readily available and who doesn’t love hitting the shops? It is also a hobby that can have a reputation of being something your Nanna would do! But in this consumer world we live, perhaps striving to make something completely unique, that fits you perfectly and is made from beautiful, high quality fabrics has a certain charm and appeal. Plus if you manage to pull it off, it almost certainly won’t seem nanna-ish.
