QuoteSadly my knit box top, from which I found that I love them, now has a moth hole right in the middle of the front. . .
Quote from: kowgiirl.up on December 15, 2020, 01:50:35 pmI'm on the fence about joining the SWAP, I just can't seem to make my mind up right now. I am leaning towards just sewing along but I don't know how to do that. How does that work?
Quote from: boppingbeth on December 12, 2020, 05:34:04 pmI'm in. Who knows if I will actually finish but I will make a valiant attempt at least. Online teaching is definitely kicking my derriere. My 'rules' are honestly, just use the stash. I have enough fabric to make about three SWAPs without ever touching a black piece of fabric. I need more clothes that are not black, dark grey or dark purple that reads black on camera. I am teaching this year online, which means I am on camera every day. My uniform (nice narrow pants, nice top, and layer) ends up showing only the top of the black sweater I usually wear. I really need to lighten things up and I need to enjoy what I have. I made a 6 pack (one layer, two pants, three tops) this fall that was a disaster because I chose styles that did not flatter my shape in any way. I need to go back to wash and wear basics.

We've discussed The Triumph of Individual Style [Carla Mason Mathis and Helen Villa Connor] here a number of times over the years. It's my go-to book for this sort of analysis.

Quote from: stephaniecan on December 22, 2020, 07:58:31 am@Grasshopper I found your musing about the clothing/jeans you find most appealing very interesting. (And your colour palette and organization of your fabrics are both fun to see.) I think we do gravitate back to styles we liked when we were younger. I was raised in the 70s and 80s and was very much a jeans girl (my mom was full into dressing me in clothes interchangeable with my brother's, and as I remarked to a colleague the other day whose child was playing on the floor with trucks in the Zoom frame...I love playing on the floor with trucks! I should have been an engineer rather than an economist-statistician, as my favourite times as a kid involved making bridges and highways for my brother's trucks). When I was a young woman I wore lots of dresses and skirts and liked that, too, but I still feel very much at ease in a 70s or 80s look with wide-leg pants or mom jeans and dropped shoulder sweaters. I feel instantly kind of free when I put on those clothes - as if I am ready for action. (Or maybe I am just a delusional middle-aged woman who thinks she can return to her glory days!
