Passion Project

Today I'm going to be sharing my passion project reflection. For my passion project I attempted to sew a blue with white polka dot dress. We had to complete all the questions to our personal best. Some bit were easier than I thought and some bit were harder than I thought. Here is my reflection.

Describe your passion project. What was your learning in it? What were you trying to produce?
I was making a blue with white polka dot dress. I was learning to use a sewing machine and sew a dress that I can wear. I also had to learn about the pattern and then figure out how to read it.

How far did you get with your passion project? What would have helped you to get further?
I got quite far in my passion project. I only had to hem the bottom sew the sides together then sew the dip on. I could of gotten further if people had shared the sewing machine more and not moaned that I was taking a little long, because when I was taking a little while it was because the needle had ever broke or my thread had come out of the needle.

What was the most challenging part of your passion project?
The most challenging bit would have to be reading the pattern at the start because I didn’t really understand it.

What was surprising about your passion project?
It was harder at times than I thought it would be and it was sometimes easy than I thought.

Did you follow your plan well? Why or why not?
I think I did follow my plan well because I didn’t change my project and I did exactly what my diary entry said I was going to do.

Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one?
I use my perseverance muscle most. I used it when I had done all the pinning on the dress then I had to undo some of it. I also used it when I had accidentally sewn crooked and I had to unpick it.

Which learning muscles did you find difficult to stretch during passion project time?
My collaboration muscle because when we were all up to sewing me and Ruby were trying to set up a schedule but nobody was listening and they moaned that someone else was first on the sewing machine.

If you were allowed to pick a new passion project, what would you choose and why?
I would chose to make up a dressage test then record me doing it then write some instruction on how to do the test. I would chose that because I love riding horses and it would be fun to do and I would learn a dressage test as well.

What was your favourite part of passion projects?

Would have to be learning how to read a pattern and making a dress and using a sewing machine.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment.
