Pozdrav / Hello

Dobrodošli na moj blog! Ja sam AnaJan, neki od vas me možda znaju sa BurdaStyle web sajta, gde sam hiepraktivan član.
Nakon skoro dve godine premišljanja o tome da li da pokrenem blog, konačno sam prelomila. Zaključila sam da blog treba da bude dvojezičan, kako bih omogućila što većem broju ljudi da ga prati bez problema.
Pretpostavljam da bi trebalo da se predstavim čitaocima koji nisu upoznati s mojim radom. Počela sam da šijem sa 15 godina, ali sam oduvek bila veoma kreativna i, kao i mnogi ljudi koji se bave šivenjem, često sam kao dete šila odeću svojim lutkama. Kada sam imala 14 godina mama mi je sašila par bluzica i suknjica, ali pošto nije bila vešta u šivenju, bila je prilično spora. U to vreme sam bila tipična nestrpljiva tinejdžerka, i nisam mogla da dočekam da završi stvar koju bi mi šila, i tako sam došla do zaključka da bih ja to uradila i brže i bolje. I tako je sve počelo. Praktično sam samouka. Mama mi je pokazala samo par osnovnih stvari: kako da izvadim kroj iz Burda časopisa, i kako da uvučem konac u šivacu mašinu. Trebalo mi je nekoliko godina da naučim neke naprednije tehnike šivenja (ili, da se bolje izrazim - da shvatim kako se neke stvari šiju), nisam imala nikog da me nauči. Ali, bilo je vredno vremena i truda! Danas, 16 godina kasnije, mogu da se pohvalim da sam iskusna šnajderka sa bogatim krojačkim stažom.
Ovaj blog sam pokrenula sa željom da vam pokažem šta šijem, i kako izgleda proces stvaranja garderobe. Takođe, pokušaću da vam pokažem kako pravim krojeve ili kako prepravljam postojeće šnitove da bih dobila željeni oblik garderobe. Nadam se da ćemo zajedno uživati!

Welcome to my blog! I am AnaJan, some of you might know me from BurdaStyle web site, where I'm a hyperactive member. 
After almost two years of meditating about starting a blog, I've finally done it. I decided to keep it bilingual, since I'm from Serbia, and I'd like to enable as many people as possible to follow it without any difficulties.
I guess it would be nice to introduce myself to the ones who aren't familiar with my work. I started sewing when I was 15, but I was always very creative and, like many sewists, I used to sew miniature clothes for my dolls as a child. When I was 14 my mom made me few blouses and skirts, but since she wasn't a very skillful seamstress, she used to sew really slowly. Being an impatient teenager, I couldn't wait for her to finish the project, so I decided I could do it better and faster than she did. And so it began. I was practically self taught. The only few lessons my mom gave me were how to trace a pattern from Burda World of Fashion (BWOF) magazines and how to thread the machine. It took me years to learn some advanced techniques, or to put it better - to figure out how some things are done. But it was worth the time and effort! Now, 16 years later, I can say I'm a skillful seamstress with rich sewing background. 
I've decided to start this blog in order to show you what I'm sewing and what the sewing process looks like. Also, I'll try to show you how I make my patterns and how I alter the existing ones to get the form I need. Hopefully, we'll enjoy this blog together!
