Too Hot to Sew
And I'm too tired to read about sewing. I fell into bed last night at 9:30. Boobla slept much better last night, so I got a pretty good night's sleep. He woke up at 6:30, but he wasn't ready to get out of bed. We were able to cuddle for a few minutes.
But I'm thinking about sewing. I like the idea of wardrobe capsules. On Sewing World, we had a contest designed around this idea call SWAP or Sewing With A Plan. I'm more in need of Sewing With A Clue, but SWAP is an ideal to which I aspire. I have lots of prints in my stash that I really like, but I don't have many solids. SWAP helped me to define navy as my primary color. I still haven't figured anything else out from SWAP, but at least it's a start.
Another aspect to the wardrobe capsule is the idea of a travel wardrobe. I don't travel much. For business, it's overnight trips, so that really isn't a problem. For vacation, I need a childproof wardrobe for Lake Winnepesake, NH, very, very casual. But I read about these travel wardrobes, where you can wear several items together, mix & match, and where you have reversible garments. Am I the only one for whom this concept doesn't work?
First off, I have never been able to wear shirts or pants twice. A reversible garment gives me nothing over a non-reversible garment. And I wonder how this really makes things easier to pack. I mean, if a reversible garment has one inside the other, it's still twice as thick as a regular garment to pack. And since I'd only be able to wear it once before washing, even without the kids' contributions, I find the reversible garment a detriment.
