I'm lucky enough to have two and a half days a week in my sewing studio. The thing is, those days right now are pretty much taken up with making things for the website, up and coming fairs and shop orders, that there's rarely time for me to make things for myself. I've come to the conclusion of late that now that I've hit 41(did I really say that out loud?!) I can no longer wear cheap clothes! They just look...well...cheap on me! Expensive, well cut, expertly sewn clothes however, suit me just fine. I've never been able to justify spending $150 on a skirt and so I decided to enroll on a dress making course at our local college. The first session was yesterday.
I dragged a couple of girlfriends along with me so it's an evening I think I'll always look forward to. Pure indulgence. Making stuff just for me. Expensive well cut looking stuff - I hope!
Lunch on the porch today in the sunshine with this book that Janelle kindly lent me. It's filled with some nice little projects, especially if you're a beginner when it comes to sewing. A wonderfully friendly book that I might just invest in. It has some ideas that my niece might like to try out when she next comes to stay.
Until next time...
