The answer is yes, I am posting another entry to my blog in the same day, but I’ve been a little busy with knitting and came up with an idea for a story (in the process of writing). Yesterday, I received a couple of Vogue Pattterns that I ordered a few days ago. I think I have enough patterns to work for a while (approximately 25), but wanted to get a hat pattern. I went overbroad with purchasing so many patterns when I am new a sewing, but the patterns I choose are easy to sew and it’s my goal to create a wardrobe.
My next pattern, I wanted to find something that would go with a blue/black tweed fabric I purchased a few weeks ago, but wanted it a simple yet elegant and stylish look. I brought Vogue Pattern magazine with the pattern done in tweed and it became an aha moment for me as I like my clothes to have a look being well put together with minimal effort and doesn’t take all day (I hate getting up in the mornings asking myself what to wear).
I am thinking about sewing the jacket and skirt in the blue/black tweed, and the dress in a black gabardine wool or wool flannel (I haven’t made a decision yet). I have some cotton tweed that sew the same dress for the spring/summer season. That’s something to consider sewing some the favorite classic pieces I like and tailoring them for fall/winter and spring/summer. Well I think I am going to be very busy with sewing, crocheting/knitting, and with ever else that comes. I promised myself to get back into reading books after three years of studying and writing papers. I have a revelation about myself and that’s the need to stay busy (and wearing pjs all day on the Sundays). I am exciting about learning how to sew and getting back into fashion as I can sometimes get too serious without taking the time for hobbies that relax and make me look good at the same time. I am also still waiting for the book I order, Reader’s Digest, The Complete Guide to Sewing for techniques to include in my sewing. Well Happy Sewing Season everyone!
