My sewing has been so all over the place lately...cannot seem to settle down to something I simply want to do. I mentioned in a comment on friend's blog that I've decided that I was feeling the pressure of having SWAPs and a fall jacket storyboard! Ouch!! I sew for pleasure - what is this? pressure? Definitely time to regroup!
Course corrected. But I will share a some funny purchases I made in my 'plan' mode. I say funny for several reasons: I am retired from working, I seldom dress 'up' and when I do, I generally sew something just for the occasion. I live in a sub-tropical climate that seldom sees temperatures requiring more than a light jacket. I love loose, comfy clothing that is architectural and interesting but not industrial (no hardware!). And I adore opportunities to mix colors and large prints. So here are a few patterns that I recently acquired and really really like - but will likely remain uncut for a while, waiting for that special occasion...

I feel so much better! I'm spending the day cutting out garments to sew during my stay with my daughter's kitties for the balance of the week. Things I love.
On the flip side! Coco
Oh, Coco- I have som e of the same patterns and I wear scrubs to work- where am I thinking I'll go? I have to just stick to my sew for entertainment mode- the idea of making a perfect pencil skirt to coordinate with.....-just leaves me cold! I'm far too shallow to plan!ReplyDelete
