a long time back i used to make myself clothes all the time
but somewhere along the line
i talked myself out of it ...
the overlocker i used to own was a bit fickle ... &
started saying it was easier & cheaper to just buy them!
i guess that is true with some things but depends what you're looking for?
i'm a big fan of re-using & so have plenty of great second hand finds
sometimes i'd prefer it new or just 'right'
or something quirky
or a certain colour or look perhaps??
now having my new 'toy'
i've been having a great time lately sewing for me again! yay
the hardest part is remembering to grab someone to take a pic while
i'm wearing what i've made so that i can show you!
here's another 'nikki a-line skirt' to show you
lighter weight fabric with the oranges & greens i love
it 'works' with my ankle boots & layers
& its wasn't at all expensive to make
as it was a rathdowne remnants actual remnant
& the best bit .... the satisfying feeling of it being
handmade by me
oh & i've been re-considering lots of my long-time
stashed fabrics .... some i have plans for once again
& some .... i've moved past
so i've been de-stashing yep!!
as in selling it to someone who see it differently to me!
make it wear it
with the train to crazy
