Three years ago, while pregnant with the kiddo, I tried to figure out my personal style and what I wanted to wear after I was done being pregnant. At that time I did a lot of reading about the subject, but I stopped at that and never put down my thoughts on paper. So, being pregnant again I will do just that. Do the reading and gather my thoughts on paper (well, blog) this time around. Perhaps I can actually figure myself out this time.
I’ve never participated, or even worked according, some of the wardrobe challenges out there, such as Sewing With a Plan, the Wardrobe Challenges at Pattern Review, Season (any season) Essential Sew-Along or the Colette Patterns Palette Challenge. It’s a great way of thinking, but so far my methodology is finding a pattern I like and matching it with a fabric I like, with little thought on how it fits into my wardrobe. Lately, at least I’ve begun thinking more about the fabric content, I want fabrics that feel nice, natural material as much as possible.
So, I will make some posts in this matter. I will use the personal style guide by Retrochick as a starting point, asking the questions “Who am I?”, “What do I like?”, “What do I have?” and “What do I need?”. Additionally I will also evaluate my Me-made wardrobe, I’m trying to create a wearability report in which I will try and figure out what I like and dislike about my me-made garments.
