I am continuing to define what I love to wear. This includes tunics and pants, flowing dresses, fitted blouses, skirts, and outdoor wear--->fleece vests under my barn jacket and snow boots to the knee. I like to look pulled together, and while I admire the girly look, I look best with simpler style lines. Dramatic jewelry or a hat or scarf helps me feel feminine and competent. Hmmm, I'm surprised at that word "competent". There was a time when I dressed to be seductive, but now I feel as though my mind and spirit are the parts of me that are attractive. I'm not discounting my physical self, but it has a different role lately.
When I began sewing a few years back, I tried lots of different patterns, and I had mixed results. I still will sew a pattern or two if I like the IDEA of a certain style, or I get caught up in groupthink. I have not yet reached a point where I can look at every pattern and say with certainty that it will or will not work on my body. I'll also pick up patterns because someone else looks wonderful in their creation-holy cow, I'm a follower!
This follower persona is a result of the immense amount of inspiration, tutorials, sharing and just plain information which is available online. I am full.
This brings me to the point of this post. I need to make some room in my creative mind, not to mention my closet. I have some patterns which need homes. I'll be happy to send these singly or in groups to anyone who wishes to take them. If you would like one or more of these, just leave a comment below and make sure I can contact you for your mailing address. I'll close out the giveaway next Sunday evening 9 pm Pacific time. It will be first come, first served.
