These days, my go to look is this: a t-shirt with a simple midi skirt.
Can you believe, I used to make my own midi, A-line or bias cut skirts (just like this green skirt!) when I was in high school?!
When I was a teenager, my mum showed me how to draw my own patterns, make neat hems and sew in my own invisible zip. But that was 20 years ago.
If I were to rate my sewing skills NOW, they would be 6/10.
My level of craftsmanship is just “OK”. And I probably wouldn’t wear my own creations!
I often have bursts of inspiration – to make my own clothes. It would be kind of cool right?
But I always get stuck on: Choosing nice fabric.
I can’t seem to find any nice fabric at a reasonable price. All the fabrics (that I like) are $60 per metre, or something ridiculous. I would be terrified of making a mistake. And I wouldn’t want to buy any more fabric than I have to.
Soooo… it’s more economically sound (and a better use of my time) for me to just buy the clothes haha!
This green skirt is from Petal and Pup, but it’s no longer available.
This one is slightly similar but shorter.
Do you make your own clothes? Got any tips on where to buy nice fabrics?
