Some people are influenced by what they read.

And some people are influenced by what they see.
Since I started, over four months ago, sewing my clothes instead of buying my clothes for a year, I’ve become absolutely obsessed about my wardrobe. Even though I spent a fortune on clothes in the past, I never had an obsession about them.
During the last four and a half months I have been abnormally aware of my visual surroundings, but only recently have I realized their impact on my life.
While visiting NY in December, I lingered around the Bergdorf Goodman windows for nearly 30 minutes, spellbound by the intricate details of the spectacular displays.
The next morning I walked out of Mood Fabrics with this fabric though I was unaware of what was going on.
What happens to a woman who gives up RTW in exchange for sewing her wardrobe for a year? I hope, at least in my case that she lives more creatively and maybe that’s what I’m doing.
As I was searching for a pattern to showcase this fabric, I decided to have some fun with this lively knit and selected this McCall’s pattern. It was easy to construct and the dress came together quickly.
