Do you ever think about how you treat your clothes? Looking at my closet gave me pause to think. I realized that “those” clothes I purchase at retail stores tend to be treated harshly and “those” that I have home sewn, get the VIP Treatment.
Joan Crawford might have a little something to say about the hangers I am using and not the segregation of my home sewn garments! Remember her famous line from Mommie Dearest? “No more wire hangers, ever!” I am not judging her parenting style by any means……..Whoops- I am a little off topic……back to my original topic.
I certainly am more careful when I eat while wearing my sewn clothes and when I am wearing them around my kids, I wouldn’t dare use my sleeve to wipe a runny nose like I would in my store-bought clothes. (If you have kids don’t act like you have never done this out of pure panic, and if you don’t have kids yet or someday you do have kids YOU too will do this, mark my words).
If you had this big mess and didn’t have any tissue, you would use your sleeve too! Poor Leaky Lindsay!
After a day of wearing my home sewn clothes, they are either hung or folded promptly and put into their rightful spots. Retail clothes, might live on the floor for a little while before going to where they belong. Yikes! I know, I can be a slob…. I am working on this, really!
These clothes that we work on for many hours, making sure that each and every detail is up to our standards are treated as if they are our very own children. I don’t think I would ever loan out a piece of clothing that I have sewn, but store-bought I would lend out no problem. I become very attached to these articles of clothing. Even the items that I view as huge mistakes, I can’t seem to get rid of. I hang on to them hoping that I will have some sort of epiphany as to how I can salvage it.
Still waiting for an epiphany on this one….
The heavy black corduroy doesn’t drape like it should and the arm openings just aren’t right- since it is the wrong season to wear corduroy, I’ll wait until the Fall to fix this one. 🙂
This one can wait as well!
That’s all for now folks. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!
