How come I do so much sewing but have nothing to wear?! Because I don't Sew With A Plan.
This morning I got up early and decided to sort through my wardrobe, weed out the things I just don't wear, clothes that are old, or unloved and see what I'm left with. This is the ENTIRE contents of my wardrobe now left:
1 red trench coat - bought
1 camel winter coat - bought
1 black walking coat - bought
1 Navy Acquascutum raincoat
1 brown/cream print dress - made
1 brown cardigan - bought
1 white satin dress - made
1 blue roses dress - made
1 denim skirt - made
2 pairs of smart jeans - bought
1 blue shirt - bought
1 blue/white linen shirt - bought
1 green tweed skirt - made
3 long sleeved t-shirts, white, blue, grey - bought
1 black linen tailored pencil skirt - made
1 black jacket - bought
1 white sequined t-shirt - bought
3 vests tops, brown, navy and white - bought
2 pairs of joggers brown and black - bought
2 sweatshirts to match - bought
1 navy/white knit dress - made
When you open the door, there is definitely a theme - blue/white/black hits you in the eyes!
What the h*ll have I been doing?!?! I think I am SO fussy with the things I make, if they don't fit 100% as they should (and they don't because I've put on weight) then I just won't wear them....
Before I moved I had a really good job where I had to be super smart on a daily basis and sewed skirts, jackets, dresses and tops. Now I work part-time (and have a supplied uniform) I just don't get what to wear anymore. It's either the joggers and sweatshirt OR a smart shift dress and heels. I just can't get in between dressing right at all.
SO - the wardrobe is bare and I need to pull my finger out asap or I will be wearing pjs all Spring. I MUST make the following as a matter of urgency:
1 Smart white fitted t-shirt
1 Casual Jacket
1 White fitted long sleeved shirt
1 casual jersey dress
1 casual spring skirt
