The more I am delving into the garments I have made , I am rediscovering those pieces I love and those I need to tweak . Over time my taste has changed and also my wardrobe requirements . I find these days (when I get back to work) that I am more often in pants and rarely in dresses even in Summer so my wardrobe will have to adjust accordingly. I am not wearing heels these days so hems need to be adjusted to reflect that. Versatility is the backbone of my creative process I love making things that can be worn a number of ways.
As we move into winter here in Australia I realise I have neglected my winter garments and need to up my game. I am spending a lot of time in my workroom but doing lots for others and not much for myself , time to readjust. I hope to have some new makes to show, and will blog those I haven’t, It is time to get to work.
Take care, happy creating,
