I do want to keep up my Seamless pledge. Thrift shopping in inspiring and exciting! It doesn’t have to look worn out, as I previously thought. I will do most of my fashion shopping second hand, but give myself some freebies if I need something particular or find something irresistible.
For sewing I will focus on wardrobe planning, getting to know my overlocker and colour. I will work through my stash of fabrics and patterns, thinking about each project and not just randomly make things, I have already started a list on what I want to sew in the new year.
My theme for thriftinh and stitching will be “work hard, play hard”, meaning my clothes should be suitable for work or leisure or both. It may sound simple enough, but I’ve found that some of my me-mades fit neither category.
I will hopefully explore my style in various aspects of my life as well as perhaps doing a few outfit posts once in a while. I don’t feel very technically adept in explaining sewing techniques and doing tutorials, so therefore I will let those who do that best do that, I can’t really add anything in that field. Maybe a few easy project tutorials, but that will be it. I need to find my own niche.
My problem, that I’ve struggled with for several years is creating outfits, styling. I need to work on that. I also need to make/buy things that go together, not just a cute skirt here in an adorable print and a top that’s hard to wear with much of my stuff.
Do you find styling easy? Do you have a plan for you wardrobe expansion?
