When you've finished your latest creation, sewn or knitted, who do you like to get approval from? Is it close friends, who know what your style is? Work colleagues who'll swear your new skirt looks like it's from Topshop? Or family, who don't hesitate in giving you the most unflinchingly honest opinion?
For me, my husband is always the first to see what I have been making so his is the first opinion I get. I like to get the basic level of 'Does this look ok/Does it look a bit mad?' approval from him, as reassurance that my choice of pattern and/or fabric wasn't a disaster. I know I can count on an honest opinion, and even if it is negative it always seems to reinforce my own opinion, even if I haven't been quite able to admit it to myself.
What about you - whose opinion do you like to get?
