Ready to wear fast (no, not THAT sort of fast)Posted: December 2, 2013
Going through my blog reader this morning (when I should have been working – I know) I saw this post from Goodbye Valentino.
Now, I have to confess that I don’t buy a massive amount of clothing anyway so this shouldn’t be too big a reach. However, everyone knows what happens when you ban something. You always want what ever you can’t have…
BUT, when I started this blog it was to encourage me to make more clothing for myself and I have to say that I haven’t noticed a great influx in my wardrobe. What hasn’t changed is my fabric buying habit, even though I am no longer selling on. (Forgive me Father for I
have continue to sin). I am drowning in stash.
So. Next year, 2014, I hereby commit to making one garment a month for me. Possibly even from the Burda magazines I have piling up under the spare bed. Using new/different techniques from the Threads magazines I read so thoroughly. And I will try to learn to get a better photograph of me wearing the garments (not The Managements reluctant photographs or my ‘in the mirror’ selfies).
Wow, that’s a pretty big declaration for an early December Monday morning.
P.S. I am sewing at the moment, but everything I am making is either Christmas presents or a Top Secret project that I will reveal later. Much later.
