It is that time again, I'm working on building my wardrobe from top to bottom.
I have recently cleaned out my closet and rid myself of every item that I have not touched for at least a year. I had so many pants I couldn't believe it. Pants I hadn't worn in several years, and couldn't get into if I tried. I literally had size 6 to 12 in my closet. After gaining weight a couple of years ago, I totally gave up on dresses and skirts. Not sure why because I have always loved them. I guess I felt frumpy and decided to buy or make them, just wear pants, to me it was easier. I work in corporate America and lost the zeal to dress up and look pretty anymore, and my co'workers started to notice and question me about it .
Then it happened, I started taking my workouts serious, and though I haven't lost much weight, because I exercise to eat, my body started to change. After a few months, I noticed my clothes started to fit a little different, and my pants no longer bulged at the waistline. I was like hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe this workout stuff is working after all. Long story short, I am feeling like the old me again. I started paying more attention to what I wear and taking the time to put my outfits together more cohesively. I even had a co-worker tell me that I was "BACK". LOL.
So I am stuffing my closet full of beautiful garments that fit me and my style again. I making things I love to wear and will be showcasing them here an on my other online sites. My wardrobe building series is called" "MYSTYLE". Here a a few garments that I have made in the past and shared on on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites Each piece except for the pink sweater was made by me:
As I build and post, I will share with you guys my patterns, modifications and styling preferences. Have an awesome day and Happy Sewing!
