I should probably also subtitle this blog "Adventures in Designing a Blog," because, seriously, I have no clue what I'm doing.
So why should you come back to this blog? I'm going to be performing some experiments, perhaps even surgery, on my wardrobe.
I am 36 years old. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. I am also an artist and I am really, really tired of my boring closet. I want to pin down my personal style, and create some really interesting items of clothing. I'm not a boring person, and I'm tired of dressing like one. But I am somewhat moderate in my tastes. I don't want to dress like a goth or a steampunk. I want beautiful, elegant, upscale, one of a kind, artistic designer clothes.
But this is not What Not to Wear. I have no Visa with $5000 to blow in NYC. In fact, I have basically no budget for this project. I do have tons of fabric from my quilting and sewing stash. I have quite a few interesting trims and embellishments that I have acquired over the years. I have fabric paint and ink and stencils. I have a lot of time, skills, knowledge, and some serious motivation.
I have also have quite a few items in my closet that are either a bit too big or a bit too small. One of my goals is to learn to alter my clothing to fit my body.
