Another week passed and daily I am surprised how many me-made items there are in my wardrobe! Somehow I was always MAKING things without a plan HOW to wear them. Know what I mean? For example I made a skirt or some trousers but didn’t think about a matching top. So I ended up wearing black tops over everything and got bored with separates all together. Then I started making dresses like mad without considering the weather or the occasion when to wear it. The result was I felt awkward wearing me-made dresses while running errands because most of them clearly call for a special occasion like a dinner or whatever and no a grocery store cam!
I tried to change this problem a million times already but after a few days I was back on just MAKING not PLANNING things. I think MMMay will help finding a way out of this dilemma. Last weekend I didn’t just go fabric shopping, I took fabric samples of my skirts and trousers with me and looked for possible fabrics for tops matching the separates. You bet I found something 😉 That’s a good start, isn’t it?
