I LOVE SHOPPING IN MY DAUGHTERS CLOSET

My oldest daughter is amazed at how long I’ve restrained from buying anything retail, oh mercy how long has it been since  a few  of us signed up for the  SEW YOUR OWN WARDWROBE FOR A YEAR CHALLENEG five months ago, did anybody go through buying withdrawals?,I did lol! right at time I signed up Cracker Barrel put out the most beautiful cloths I’d ever seen them sell, the Malls were bursting with bright vibrant colors,to keep from going into detox  lol ! I dove into Hancock's pattern sales, fabric clearance tables& dove into canning full force, this will most defiantly keep you to busy to shop or think about shopping lol! speaking of pattern sales did you know Butterick went on sale today for 99c lol! through this  sewing journey I have met many wonderful ladies from around the globe, it’s interesting that as we are headed for Fall some are headed for spring some  Summer, some are a day ahead & though I am writing this here at my bedtime there are those who are just waking up sitting here with their coffee ,so not only am I meeting wonderful new friends from around the globe, revisiting my sewing skills that had gone rusty lol! I’m getting  a lot of culture & I love that!

Funny enough - I haven't found it that hard to resist the RTW clothes. I look at it and think - make it yourself! Actually walked into a shop yesterday with 70% off and walked out again!!!

I am wearing an old pair of RTW pants today - and they are tight around the waist, and too big by five inches at the thigh. So I have no regrets about starting to make my own clothes again - my worse efforts look better than that! We are heading into evening now, and it's Saturday tomorrow - we are a day ahead!

I wonder if you could figure out how much you are saving each time you don't shop and put it away in a jar . . . well, how much you would have at the end of a year. Maybe, you would have a dream vacation. Of course to a place that had good shopping, LOL
