Ok, it’s been a banner week for unsolicitations for me! 🙂
Today, as I was standing in line at Whole Foods, a woman standing behind me tapped me on my shoulder. She said she loved my skirt and asked me where I bought it. I told her it was actually a dress (she couldn’t see it was a dress because I had my coat on) and that I had made it. She was surprised, but very complimentary. She mentioned that she used to sew in her 20’s but no longer did. I told her where I bought the fabric (Metro Textiles) and that sewing was a great hobby and she should get back into it. She then asked me if I made most of my own clothes, to which I replied I’m trying to!
Here’s the dress I wore today, Vogue 8379…
My secret plan is to slowly take over the world and convince everyone to sew their own clothes. Person #1, DONE!
PS: Don’t worry, I’m not going to post every time someone compliments the clothes I make. (Assuming it keeps happening, of course!) I am just so chuffed about it!
