My plan is to wear my new jeans to work today. I’ve never worn something I made to the office, and I am a bit nervous about it. What if they look ‘homemade’ in a My Mom Made My Clothes sort of way? What if, for the first time ever, something I made just falls apart? What if, despite prewashing the fabric, the color starts rubbing off on everything and I leave a blue trail on everything I touch? Let’s try to be rational here. If I can make a corset that can give me an almost 6 inch reduction and not fall apart, I should be able to make a stable pair of jeans.
Really, I am just nervous about opening myself up for criticism. Lots of my coworkers already think I am a bit odd, although not necessarily in a bad way. I did tell everyone when I took that fire spinning class. Sewing your own clothes is a bit of an oddball hobby these days. I don’t think anything calls these out as being handmade, and I need to get used to the idea since I am planning on making myself some slacks and a shirt or two for work.
In sewing related news, I am totally lusting after this pattern from Wearing History . Sadly, I don’t know that I can fit it into my budget just now, but hopefully before summer. I think the outfit would be adorable at the beach, and the skirt would also make great office wear. I also love the bathing suit in this vintagepattern , but of course it has already sold.
