After my last project I realized that the skirt and the red cardigan was a versatile ensemble and that it could be dress up or down. After checking my closet I found that 30% of my clothes are versatile. I need to increase it to at lease 90% percent.
Sewing with a plan is not a new concept for me; however I was not successful in my previous attempts. This time instead of planning every detail and I am allowing myself to be inspired. The inspiration could be from anything, including items I already own. If an item in my wardrobe does not inspire me then I am going to give it away to the Goodwill store and move on.
The plan is to sew items that coordinate with what’s in my wardrobe. I need clothes for work (dress code is casual, relaxed, appropriate and professional) and clothes that fit my lifestyle which is casual and relaxed.
The ultimate goal is to create a wardrobe with enough pieces that I can basically have something to wear at a moments notice.
My next inspiration is a cropped jacket. More later....
