Plus, I am choosing to make my hiking & exercise gear instead of buying whenever possible or when available RTW is rather ill fitting to my body shape (endless curves).
In my excitement, I forgot that I do like to rest and do nothing sometimes to allow my creative muse to winter & rejuvinate or to allow myself to follow the whim of the day. I allow myself this because I find that I am more regimented in my work life; balance is key for me.
I have several hikes in the queue and know I will be needing base layers beyond what I currently have in the bureau. So, thinking of making a cotton sun dress is STRESSING ME OUT! Gah! Let it go.... go with the flow....
So this weekend after I finished Vicki of Yellow Submarine Time's wearable nametag / mini-bag, (I went overboard and it took more time than I should have spent, but I love to go all out on somethings) I pulled out my Moulage from Kenneth King's Moulage class and the patterns I was toying with for Sew For Victory .
My Sew For Victory entry will now transition into a piece that is "inspired by" the 1940's, but is definitely making use of the "make due" philosophy.
- I'm using fabric that's already in my stash.
- I'm using a pattern I have already, but taking the time to draft it to fit me
- I'm choosing colors that I love and will wear even though they aren't "true" to the 1940's (it's practically neon pink, do you notice a trend in one of my favorite colors right now?)
- I'm using a 1940's pattern & style, but adapting it to my lifestyle
It's all cut out and ready to be sewn, so stay tuned for more colorful photos very soon!
