As you see more of my handmade outfits in action, one thing should be clear — I wear a lot of solids.  I came to this realization a couple of years ago, and started to direct more of my sewing energy into solids.  And when I did, I went from wearing about 50% handmade items to wearing almost 100% handmade items.  On a typical day, chances are you won’t find any RTW garments on my body!

My Birkins flares are possibly my most-worn handmade garment at this point, largely because they are currently the only pair of jeans that I like!  A couple more pairs of jeans for fall and winter are at the very top of my sewing list right now.  Just as soon as I finish up a tutorial (which will publish next week), I plan to dive back into jeans making!
