Barely did I have time to unpack my suitcase and do laundry than I was off once more, anew. I wish I’d had had time to sew one more quick jersey fabric shirt, in between, or work on my blazer a bit more, or start my cape…but…such is life. I did not.
So I’m sticking to my resolution of wearing only handmade, as much as possible, whenever I leave town, so here I am, doing my best. Today, for travel, I’m wearing the corduroy skirt I made recently (and posted here) with the whipped-together cowl-neck tee shirt I made two weeks ago, for last week’s trip.
This is a short trip, anyway: three days, three outfits, and then hopefully I’ll be able to work on something brand new.
Meanwhile, I think I want to re-make the waistband on this skirt. When I wear something store-bought, I just make do with however it fits. When I wear something self-made, however, I fuss over every detail, never quite content. After wearing it a while, I always think I can improve on a thing.
I suspect this is why so many garments end up in my mending basket, as just more work to be done.
