Like stage-fright, but not.
I decide what I want to do and figure out how to do it, but when it comes to making that first cut or stitch, I just can't see it through. I stand there staring at the fabric with scissors in hand, and, well, that's as far as I get.
It is the fear of botching it that I cannot get over.
If I want to reconstruct clothing I worry that I will spoil something that is perfectly wearable and if I want to make something from scratch I worry I'll ruin decent fabric so I end up doing nothing.
I feel so craftily impotent! Any advice?
