WHAT I WANT
Example: In Picture A above, there's a frilly-at-the-shoulder top (Vogue 1275). I want to give those ruffles a try. Would I wear this? Probably not. Will I sew it up anyway? Probably so.
I have a bunch of other patterns in my stash that fit this category: So much fun to sew, some of them stylish, even elegant, but why? what for? This Calico Quilter grandma (me) primarily stays at home in the kitchen, in the garden, and at the sewing machine. Oh, sometimes we do it up (BFF hubby and me), and we do go out from time to time. We're considered a stylish couple, but we're turning out to be simple folk as we move along.
WHAT I NEED
See Picture B above? I need work frocks (no joke)...to wear in the garden, in the kitchen, for just hanging out in. Dare I make a pair of overalls? I have a pattern for that, too.
As some suffer from writer's block, I'm having quite a time choosing what to sew next. Fun and fancy or practical? What's a girl to do?
