What I've made is what I'm wearing...

I always read about ladies who make all these clothes then don't wear them... thats sad! I think I get alot of wear out of things I make... really everyday I have on something I've made... alot of days everything I have on I made.. including jewelry and handbag!


*Please excuse some of my pics are blurry... we have a new camera and Bald Man isn't used to how fast it snaps a pic and I don't notice its blurred until I load it! *

Here I am, Sunday,...On my way to church in a new dress!.... this is NL6774 I'm in love with this maxi dress. Its SO comfortable! This pattern was super easy to make... seems like alot of stuff I've been making has been easy... I need to step it up a bit. Summer sewing is always easier to me. I do need to get ready to start my fall wardrobe though...
Anyways! The top is a lite weight knit I got from Miami... the bottom is a colorful heavy stretch lace I got from the ATL sewing expo last year. Its lined with a stretch knit nude fabric I bought at jo anns.
Wed.....On my way to see our favorite local musician here in Knoxville (besides my son ofcourse!) J. Luke! He's just awesome... you know I can't remember if I ever posted this "throw back" shirt I made last fall. Its made from a very vintage pattern that was originally a catsuit. The fabric is a vintage piece my mom picked up at a yard sale... fabulous! Its just so fun to wear!


Below.... Going out to our favorite dance spot in Knoxville, Purada, on Saturday night.

This is V1027 I got the fabric in Miami at Rex's. This was also super easy to make... and honestly.... I think I look like a cow in this dress but the Bald Man thought I looked super hot... who am I to disagree with my husband???? lol! and he's usually brutally honest about things like that. It does move beautifully when we dance though.




And everyday in between I wore my yoga wardrobe... jeans I made, t-shirts I altered.... yeah... I get alot of wear outta what I sew....


This makes a good case to show Bald Man because I think we need to take a trip and buy some new fabric....

Good Lord! That dress does not make you look like a cow! I think it's very slimming. Your maxi dress is pretty too although I don't think I'm going to make one for myself. I see a lot of people are into them but I remember them from high school and they always caught between my legs!

No way do you look like a cow. I agree with the Bald Man! I just made my first maxi dress and I see more of them in my future. Love your cute little zip top!

I never saw a cow that pretty and curvy before in my life and I've seen lots of cows! You are beautiful

I also wear the garments I sew. Its such a great feeling to know I am wearing personal couture...lol. if I lose interest in a garment I made, it is then given away.

All of your garments look great, my favorite is the maxi dress.

You obviously enjoying making simple styles and your wearing them. And what's more, you look great in them. Sew what you need, and if that involves stepping up, step up. But if you don't need to, stay right where you are.

It is great to wear what you make. I would like to have more time to make more clothes. I agree, take a trip and buy more fabric!
