I need to sew. I have a wish list for spring/summer longer than I can conceivably complete. I really need a few more pieces for my work wardrobe, but I am also in desperate need of some new things for casual wear. That being said, I'm more of a tailored casual person than a jeans and t-shirt type of person. Which means most of my every day clothes work for my office as well (I've developed a new appreciation for business casual!).
I "need" more bottoms. For me, this is an array of skirts because I'm not overly fond of slacks. But I have only two TNT skirt patterns, and honestly, I'm tired of them. I need to put them aside and try some new patterns. Maybe over Memorial Weekend, when I ship my boys and husband out for a Boy Scout camping trip. But right now, I need instant satisfaction!! So a casual knit top is on my list. I have several KS tops that I know will work for me, and I have a Jalie pattern I've been itching to try. So after my son's birthday party today, I think I will dig out my patterns and make a decision. Thank goodness I packed all my fabric in clear bins that are easy to locate! I might even make a trip to Joann's just to take a peak at what's available. It's been a couple of months since I was last in. I do have a couple of TNT woven patterns I could use if I found the right fabric, but I'd like to use up some of my stash since I know my sewing time is more limited now. I've reached the point where I feel guilty buying more fabric, when I already have so much, and I don't like that feeling at all!!! I'll post later today when I've made my final decision.
