Every time I walk into a fabric store I want to kick myself. About ten years ago I decided that I had to much stuff and gave away containers filled with mostly new patterns. I also gave away some fabric that I did not know what to do with and allowed a friend to use my sewing machine!
Over the years I have developed a particular style that does not change with the season. Making my clothes has become a better option than purchasing them, particularly since they are not available. I choose to wear ankle length skirts and short sleeve blouses. Finding the right patterns has become an adventure.
I am not giving up. However, I refuse to pay more than $5 for a pattern so I will have to wait for a sale. Patterns can go on sale for as little as $2 each.
For now I am making simple maxi skirts from a pattern shared on YouTube.
