If I’m not sewing, in class, or at work, I’m reading sewing blogs. Today I was reading So, Zo… and loved the idea of her Me-Made-May challenge, I would love to do it, but…I don’t have a completely hand made wardrobe yet 😦
So in order to force myself to make a complete wardrobe instead of an outfit or two to complement my recent store-purchases, I’m going to pledge 2 months to Wardrobe Refashion!
Things I am not including are:
- undergarments ( i’m not ready to start making these yet)
- socks ( i can barely knit a straight row)
but seeing as it is only 2 months for now I will be trying not to buy undergarments and socks.
In this 2 months I would like to sew/finish sewing:
- the pants I started sewing in February ( my first pair of pants)
- 2-3 skirts (I can see myself making several Beignets)
- 4-5 shirts/blouses
Up until this point I’ve been sewing mostly dresses and for the past few months I’ve only been sewing them for special occasions. This has really put a damper on sewing for everyday occasions.
I’m really looking forward to giving myself this challenge. If it goes well I hope to eventually become a WRer for life.
