I am very excited for the party kicking off the Seam Allowance program this Saturday from 3-6pm at A Verb For Keeping Warm. I am intrigued by the idea of making 25% of my own clothing mostly as a personal challenge to see if I can do it.
It will force me to go through my closet (I suspect I only wear 50% of what’s there) and purge. Going forward I hope to make better choices, including supporting more locally owned businesses like yarn and fabric shops. My idea is that I will sew a few basic garments that will compliment my sweaters so I know whatever I throw on when I get dressed in the morning will work.
That’s the plan anyway. Stay tuned and join in if you want!
