This is doubly frustrating as all my wedding sewing means I haven't had time for a desperate sewing spree to fill in the gaping holes that are becoming apparent in my me-made wardrobe.
The last few weeks have taught me:
1) I don't have enough separates. I think it is probably a frequent sewing trap to make lots of pretty dresses and forget those practical wardrobe staples.
2) I wear dull colours. I made a decision about 18 months ago to only buy/make clothes in black, blue, green, purple, white, cream and yellow, which my photos in the me-made flikr group will attest to. The aim was to have a cohesive wardrobe where everything would go with everything else, but it is time to try out some brighter shades and more interesting fabrics. I will try harder!
3) I need to master tailoring. I need more trousers and jackets.
4) I would like to make my own knickers, bras and workout gear. Thou shalt not covet other people's me-mades. Ok I know that is kind of the point, but I am very jealous of all the ladies who have tackled these less obvious or daunting projects. Oh to be self-sustainable!
5) How much I appreciate clothes that fit me properly. I wish every woman realised that clothes should fit them and not the other way around. This isn't really a Me-Made realisation, but trying to do without mass produced clothing really brings it home.
There's only one thing to do.... Shop for new fabric. Well if I must.....
