What Happened to the 12th Month's Outfit?
Well, I decided that, since my sewing got diverted to volunteer work for the last six weeks...well, for the last two months, if I'm honest...of last year, I would cut myself some slack. I'm letting myself sew that last outfit this month. So...sometime in January, I'll post what I come up with and finish out the year. Yeah, I missed the Christmas party season with the fancy clothes but, if truth be told, I didn't have anything on my social calendar that required fancy clothes anyway. So I'll finish up this month and still have something dressy in the closet should I need it.
I have some black stretch velvet to hand, and I ordered a bit of textured royal blue stretch velvet that should be in hand by the end of next week...one of those things will get used.
I'm going to see about doing a little analysis of what I did last year, too...probably in February.
But I plan to sew some fun stuff in the next few weeks as well...stuff I wanted to make last year but were pushed down the priority list by the 12 outfits assignment.
Interestingly, Janice has chosen more, um, economical scarves for this years 12 months/12 outfits exercise. Have a look-see; you don't have to buy a pricey Hermes scarf to have a good wardrobe foundation. ;-)
