If I want to wear this cut, on my excellent bod, I’m gonna get these wrinkles!

There’s no give in the fabric so I definitely couldn’t do yoga in these, but I already don’t do yoga, so problem solved.

When you take old clothing and accessories and turn it into something new, you’re actually thrifting, flipping, up cycling, and “shopping” all at once!

Often good practice is cleansing Closet. You will not only save valuable space by ridding your dressing room of things that do not fit or have not been worn in the past six months, but also allows you to re-evaluate your personal taste. Thrift flipping is a concept borrowed from the real estate industry. Buying a piece of land, doing some work on it, and then selling it for more than you paid for it is known as “flipping” in real estate. There are many strategies for thrift flipping. By taking inventory of your wardrobe, noting what you no longer want, and attempting to sell it, you can thrift flip your own clothes. Although some people think of thrift flipping as simply making more money off an item than you paid for it, it can also be like shopping to your own wardrobe and up cycling clothing to give it a new life. You may wonder what they mean if you’ve ever heard someone say they’ll go thrifting. In other words, thrifting means shopping, garage sales and flea markets, where you will find items that are used carefully at discounted prices. Sweeped items were loved by a previous owner, but usually have good shape and sufficient life to make a new owner useful.

I know the effect I want to get, but don’t know how the colours will work, whether I want one colour for the background or a ‘plaid’ with all the warp colours or other colours on hand

I don’t know if I’ll be able to sneak in some pieces with just one weft. I know I want to do a large piece with some inlay wefts in bright contrasting colours, and some simple mats. I want to weave the symbols right side up and upside down. I need to know which patterns I want for borders. I’m putting on a really long warp in hopes of getting loads of sampling and then assembling something really special. Wish me luck!

I want to completely make over my underwear drawer!

I have to say this bra making is turning into obsession. I want to try some other patterns and really develop my skills. Also for the first time in forever, I have nicely fitting, beautiful bras.

Even though I have been sewing for a few years at this point, I am still terrified of making pants, a fear I am hoping to conquer this year

I had to make revisions to the front and back crotch, and also added some length to the legs because I want to be able to wear boots or wedges with my jeans. This revision had to be made to all of the leg pieces. This is different for everyone. Some people may always have to make revisions to the length of the pattern, [either too short or too long] or they will have to make revisions to the seat of the pattern or the tummy part. Depending on your body, you will likely have to make some kind of revisions to pants patterns. Unless, of course, you decide to just make your own pants pattern and make other pants patterns from that original pattern, which I believe is probably the best way to go.
