Remember this? The Colette Fall Palette challenge that I started.
I had a few weeks of sewing obsession, completing three garments that don't fit perfectly.
A pair of pants that I muslined and once completed there was extra fabric under the but? Not cool
A top that I LOVE but the neckline is too wide and too low.
Another top that I kind of love but isn't constructed too well, my first time sewing with organza.
And a half completed Black Chambray Shirt Dress which I really do want to finish.
Anyways, I was looking at my closet and realizing that I am wearing my fall Palette colors and loving them. Some I was wearing already, some I have added since creating my Palette.
My sewing mess stayed out for several weeks earlier this fall and then got packed away when company was coming. I have a small sewing table in my room with bad lighting. A big dining room table with slightly better lighting is where I like to sew. I pulled out my machine last night and finally fixed this skirt. I will attempt to take some modeled photos of all these pieces soon so you can see what I'm talking about.
Have a mentioned what a bad shopper I am? I think I talked about this before. I have good taste, I like fine fabrics (or at least natural fibers) but I'm cheap. Those things don't go hand in hand. So I have been thrift shopping more. Thrift shopping requires a big time investment, and sometimes the clothes also need to be altered, more time there. But it's cheap and finding treasures is a fun.
Aquarium Grass Earrings to my Etsy shop last night and plan to add more pieces soon.
I'm not feeling the Christmas spirit at all, are you? Maybe decorating would help.
I like to make gifts but am not sure how much of that I will have time for this year.
I have ideas though. I need to make a list. Lists always help me get my act together.
