Anyway, while surfing sewing blogs, I came across the 2014 RTW Fast on http://goodbyevalentino.com/2014-rtw-fasters/ . I was always running to the mall for pants. I live in pants, rarely wear a dress these days. What I should have been doing is concentrating on fitting a good sloper for pants instead. I look at my stash and am so inspired--I just need to start using it again. By not letting myself purchase clothes, I will be forcing myself to start sewing these lovely fabrics.
My local ASG group is also concentrating on sewing blouses/shirts this year. I love to sew blouses, and will be running a couple meetings on pintucks and flyfronts for blouses.
So into this RTW Fast I dive, first to finish the jacket I cut out last year, then a shirt to go with it. After that, I will concentrate on pants. No more short cuts/cop-outs buying clothes. I have the skills and fabric to make the clothes I really want to wear happen.
My best wishes and happy sewing to all of you who are part of this lovely group.
