My main focus for this challenge is my own wardrobe building. That's right! Being a full time Professional Sewer means I spend most of my time sewing for other and it's time to get back to me a bit. Besides, I'm my own "walking billboard" and need to maintain a high standard of fashion----not spend 15 minutes in the closet every morning trying to figure out what I'm going to wear.
So I'm off to a good start. I whipped out this cute top which I plan to pair with black leggings and could also go with jeans and boots.
(love this top 6990)
I'm working on the rest of my wardrobe plans. I've pretty much got the fabric in house---remember I literally have my own fabric shop in my house so I had lots of choices to pull from. Here are some of the pieces I'm trying to crank out this month.
Victoria's February Sewing Plans (Wardrobe Building)
-Black knit pencil skirt
-Cream blouse---versatile enough to wear with skirt, pants, leggings and under fur vest
-Fur vest---I have this gorgeous fur I showed off on FB a few weeks ago
-Tan leggings/pants---I realize I don't have any light color pants in my wardrobe
-Animal print cardigan---I have a wonderful plush animal print knit and I'm debating a cardigan or a dress
-Black yoga pants---because it's a staple that should be in every woman's closet
-Gray Rain coat---I don't have one and I think it would be rather stylish
-----and a few more ideas. I picked pieces that I know I could easily mix match. They will definitely expand my wardrobe.
Plus I need to do some casual wear sewing for my daughter. She wears a uniform to school but she doesn't have cute, girlie clothes to wear to church.
Speaking of my daughter. I finally found the fabric I'm going to make her Father/Daughter Banquet dress out of that she'll be wearing on Feb 28th. I ran across this GORGEOUS royal purple brocade with tan and gray in it at Jo-Ann's. I got just a little under 1.5yd and had to order 3 yards since it was practically hard to find anywhere. This photo doesn't do it justice. This fabric is beautiful. I need to finish planning her dress design. I'll have that info later.
