Colette Wardrobe Architect 2015 Challenge

Early this morning I was having breakfast and going through Bloglovin (as usual) and was delighted to read the new post by Colette on Wardrobe Architect 2015 Challenge.


I must admit last year, when the original series were posted, I skipped these posts, had too much going on in my life and when blogging time came, late into the night, I was so tired that I prefered pinterest or other more visual posts. Huge mistake.

I have been going through the WA series these past weeks as I am in the New Year resolution phase of sewing again for myself. And I am truly amazed, as I believe these posts will be so helpful.

This year I need to focus on two key aspects:

  • Stash busting. I have way too many fabrics, some of which were bought before moving out from my parents 9 years ago. How crazy is that?? 
  • Wardrobe redefinition. 
    • Can't fool myself any longer on waiting for my body to recover from 2nd kid (20 months have gone by already). I should accept my bust will never go back to its shape and place, and this is fine by me, I am proud of my bust but it's bigger now, and have a lot of shirts that will never ever suit me again. And I have to accept it and clear my closet. 
    • My tummy is also a bit rounded nowadays, and whenever I feel too big I simply remember my huge tummy 38 weeks pregnant and laugh at myself, this was never going to go back, how could it be possible, so I need to accept it (and I do). So definitely a few changes here. 
    • So what basics do I really need? I can't come again with the sad expression "I have nothing to wear" when my wardrobe is full. These clothings could have another use, either refashioning for my kids, as most are in very good shape (good quality leads to longer use, don't you agree?), or giving them away. Anything is better than hanging in my closet forever. 
In addition to this, I am somehow tired of endless shopping sessions searching RTW with little success and a lot of frustration. Can you tell why? Sizes unavailable, fitting issues, high prices, low quality, fast worn out clothings... I find myself amazed so many times, and tired, and angry of this cycle, and try to focus on my sewing but have too many WIP projects or planned projects and a pile of clothings awaiting small mendings... So sometimes I am overwhelmed and don't know where to start with and in the end nothing useful comes out.

So during this Xmas break I thought a lot about all this and decided I needed a plan. No more endless pinterest inspiring sessions or indecision between patterns, Need to focus and make great use of that small time I can make after putting the kids to bed, which is my sewing time (working mamas have this limitation).

So thanks Colette again for such thoughtful series and for helping us plan our sewing sessions and projects. I am so thrilled I can't wait to have it started already.

Note for hubby. If you're reading this, don't worry, I will sew for you this year, I promise
