Recently, I've been doing a lot of work on my stash of unfinished projects as well as working on a list of items I want to sew or knit for my wardrobe. Pictured is a 1940's style dress that I started AGES ago and finally sat down and finished. I find I tend to give up on projects when I hit a wall. Such was the case with this dress and the too short collar. I decided to just cut another one and ended up being able to wear the dress to the op shop yesterday!
In finishing this dress I looked at what was left in my "to do" pile and worked out the kinks in a blouse I have yet to finish and that I need to put in a lining in the 40's style suit still sitting in the basket. By no means is that all that is in that basket; however, having been inspired by By Gum, By Golly, I looked at my closet and worked out what needs to be added or replaced. For a while now I've been aiming to have a closet that is largely comprised of handmade and vintage clothing and seeing other people aim for similar goals is inspiring and helping me to focus in on what I want.
