So the year has begun and I am now retired! Looking forward to the time I will have to do the creative things I love. Sewing is one of them. I have nothing to wear because I hate shopping and so I have joined the RTW fast which means I will need to make all my clothes! In my previous job I wore scrubs almost daily…..so glad to be out of them. They were comfortable and it kept me out of malls but I always felt frumpy.
Today is getting organized day. I need to decide what pieces of clothing I will need the most. Party dress needed for January 20th😳. Better get started! Happy New Year🎉🎉🎉
The last year was very busy for me. My mother got ill, thank God she is getting better, so sewing time was at a premium. I made a pair of slacks, silk dress and a skirt. I will take some pictures latter and post. Mainly I have been in scrubs. I didn’t break my fast, so I am quickly running out of things to wear. I am hopefully going to join the 2015 fast and get something done.
New year has arrived and I have joined the group of no RTW for one year! That means that I must make my clothing and not purchase any new things for one year! Those of you who know me already know that I HATE shopping! My favorite stores are Trader Joes and Home Depot! I do have a stash of material from when my daughter was young and I sewed for her. I like to knit so I have a stash as well.
My sewing room is a little cluttered but I have everything I need including a TV to watch the football games 😉
I also have a few cats keeping me company!
I am working on a straight skirt and as you can see a muslin of a blouse, that will hopefully turn into a nice blouse that fits perfect!
So I am trying to sew and knit and I just finished this shaw called ‘Skywalker’. It was fun to knit, and I can wear it with many things. I do like knitting because it is very portable. I can’t take my sewing to work but I can take my knitting.
I am embarking on a year of sewing my own clothes! I am an OB/GYN who also loves to learn new things and share them with others. I am almost finished with my Little Black Dress! T took a couture class with Susan Khalje and I have to say I learned a great deal. I sewed for my children but since they are grown and gone I haven’t been doing much sewing. So, here goes.
