2018 Sewing Challenge #2018RTWF

As I enter 2018, I have committed to no shopping for Ready to Wear clothes for the whole year of 2018. Yes NO SHOPPING for ready to wear clothing for an entire year. I know this sounds crazy considering how much I LOVE to shop, but on the other hand here are a few reasons why I won’t be shopping.

  1. Save Money- I want for nothing, my closet is busting at the seams with store bought clothing.
  2. Improve my sewing skills – I have been sewing for 3.5 years and there are some techniques that I have not mastered yet, that I am so ready to learn.
  3. Make clothes that fit me – I am 4″11 and most maxi dresses or skirts don’t fit me. When I do purchase them I have to alter them, so why not make my own.

How am I going to do this? Well, I have already joined the 2018 Ready To Wear Fasters Challenge being hosted by Sarah Gunn of Goodbye Valentino.

In addition to the Ready to Wear Challenge I belong to several Facebook sewing groups where I am learning from other teachers, sewists, and sewing bloggers. There are a lot of Sew Sisters out there that provide love and support to each other, not just for sewing but in life. This makes a huge difference, when you can communicate with those that have the same passions that you do. So with that said, Happy Sew Year 2018. Let’s get this party started. img_4082img_4083
