I'm very excited for summer. The husband and I have a great vacation filled summer ahead of us (Europe, Chesapeake Bay for a family wedding/reunion, and the coast of Maine). Unfortunatley I have no clothes for these trips so I decided to go shopping recently. The thing is ever since I started to sew I haven't been able to shop. The ability to make your own clothes is both a blessing and a curse. On my recent shopping trip I decided:
1. Clothes that I like are overpriced and I know I can make them fit better and reflect my own style at a fraction of the cost.
2. Clothes that are reasonably priced are poorly made or made with synthetic fibers (yes, I'm a fabric snob).
3. I will make my entire summer wardrobe myself.
I'm not exactly sure when I think I'm going to find the time to create a new wardrobe. Oh well, sleep is for the weak. And I envy the weak.
So stay tuned for a few pictures of this endeavor. Plus a new product is coming next week, maybe even this weekend which is the product that made me start Cinnamon Sangria.
In the meantime check out this scarf. Everytime I see scarves I think of NYC. I love scarves and I love NYC so it's a perfect match and a happy thought. My inlaws live in NYC and everytime I go during the winter months I'm always borrowing scarves from my mother in law. Perhaps I'll make more for my NYC travels. I think the flowers add a bit of feminity so the grey isn't so drab. This one shown is flannel and oh so soft!
