I find when I have shopped, I always end up realizing I could make this and maybe for less. If you shop at many store that have disposable clothing you find that sewing your clothing is more expensive, but if you like quality garments you can sew them for the around the same price and sometimes less. My sewn garments almost always fit better and I know I feel proud when complimented on them.
The only thing that I was not sure I could make were jeans, socks and tights. I purchased some jeans in December and the socks are on the "allowed" list, now I am ready to go. She started her first Fast in August of 2011, during her first year of sewing she made 64 garments. She is also one of Mood Fabrics sewing network bloggers. I am going to do my best to make garments in 2014 instead of purchasing. Anyone else want to join Sarah, myself and many more sewists on our fast? The deadline is December 31st to email Sarah with your information.
