The other day Carolyn did a post on Snoop Shopping. I did that very thing last week looking for capri pants, guachos and shorts.
Now this whole sewing thing has been so trial and error for me. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I learn with each garment and I think I get better with each garment.
I STILL mess up. I still pick the wrong fabric and patterns and I still waste my time on some projects lol.
I am STILL learning what looks good on me. Some stuff I KNOW what works...some things I don't lol.
I am SO glad I sew. SO GLAD SO GLAD SO GLAD LOL.
It is the season for guachos, capri pants and shorts. Ahhhhhhh I set out to one of my favorite stores to try some on...
Now, ya'll know I tell the good, and the not so good so ummm yeah lol.
I took several different styles, cuts, lengths into the dressing room. If you have a friend you can trust to tell you the TRUTH about how something looks on you take them with you...JUST incase you need a second opinion. I don't know about you but sometimes it's hard to see yourself.
WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG LOL
First of all they are too small (didn't have my size) and I hate the cut.
WRONG WRONG WRONG!!! This is SO not cute on me.
EWWW. I don't know WHY they didn't have my size in a lot of stuff I tried on so I had to get the one that was close to my size. I do love the length.
*DING DING DING* We finally have a winner. I LOVE everything about these....I actually bought them lol. First time I have bought something RTW in a WHILE. I will use these against my pattern when I make mine!!
I also look at the way things are made. I LOVE how they played with the stripes! Fell in love with these.
There was also this lightweight demin pair that I LOVED...I wanna do a pocket like this. I think it is so cute!
I know it's just a pocket with some gathering on it but I still thought it was cute lol.
ALSO.... Sheri did a post on fabric and yarn snobs....are you one?!?!?
I generally just buy what feels good against my skin. If it doesn't feel good, I don't buy it. I could care less what the fiber content is, as long as it doesn't irritate my skin....I'm good. That goes for both yarn and fabric.
Are ya'll fabric/yarn snobs?
Ok, that's all i've got...guess that's enough huh? lol
