Sewing with a Plan: Stage 1, edition 2

swap stage 1-ed2
I must say, I really like the process, here. Remember the great wardrobe sewing plan? I had completed the first edition of it last month.
Now, I'm proud to present the second edition, with six new items, replacing pieces that I wasn't entirely happy with. Because, really, what I am aiming for is a complete wardrobe of ten items that are suitable work wear. That don't look or feel homemade, that look elegant, and that I am not afraid to wear to a customer meeting. I'm not there yet, so you will continue to see further editions of this same stage of planned wardrobe sewing.

It is strangely satisfying to me to stay within this scope of planned coordination: I used to shop (and sew or knit) without a grand plan of having coordinating items and ended up with single pieces that I often had a hard time to put together into outfits.

I'm always impressed when I read about those swaps. I don't think I could do it, I'm not such a planner :-) That skirt on the bottom right looks very lovely!

PS. I am using internet explorer 8 and unfortunately a lot of your posts are nog readable, because they have very small or even scrambled letters. Thought you wanted to know that. In Safari it all works fine.

x and lovely to have found your blog!
