You have probably heard of Goodbye Valentino’s RTW Fast. Cuz you are just cool like that.
I thought about participating last year, but you know, sometimes you just can’t commit, amiright? 😉
For 2015, I am all in. Gonna officially take the plunge. I don’t know about all you other RTW Faster-types, but I definitely have some exclusions.
Shoes. I have enough tools and mess in my house with all my sewing paraphernalia, and I sure don’t need to learn cobblering. Only.So.Much.Time.Remaining!
Lingerie. Can you spell BOR-ring? I like to sew tailored shirts, people, and this year my goals are to ratchet up my coat tailoring skills and try my hand at men’s dress slacks. Panties? Pffft. I can envision I might try making them some day, because it IS fun to whip out a quick project now and again, but it is so far down my I-want-to-sew-list it may never surface. And I don’t really have any trouble getting bras to fit properly, so that effort also just doesn’t provide sufficient return on time investment. I know, loads of you out there disagree with me. That’s OK. We can still be friends. 😉
Sweaters. KnitNBee, I bow to you, and the many other great knitters out there. I know how to knit, but don’t do much of it anymore. I already have enough arthritis in my hands to cause discomfort, and I need to save my hand energy for sewing and gardening. On that note, I am starting to think about which varieties of edible greens I should plant in the next month or two…we have had a mild winter here in the PNW. Gardening time!
