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!
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.
