|Liberate Yourself with the ten item wardrobe....10? Yes 10!|
Whenever I decided to do all this, I also started sewing my own clothes mainly to try and get clothes that fit me better. So minimalism is not easy when you sew, well there is so much lovely fabric out there. However, I have sold nearly 50 items on ebay and given a lot away to charity so that's a good start. I have also been doing the Wardrobe Architect exercises from the Colette patterns website which has been great. So, on paper, this is my twelve item wardrobe for spring 2014 (well it doesn't have to be 10 exactly!)
Trousers 1 wide leg trousers, 1 cigarette trousers
Perfect fit jeans
Will I be able to stick to this? Honestly I doubt it, but I am going to really try. I am pretty sure there are a lot of lovely spring/summer sewing patterns about to be released and I know I won't be able to resist.
So I think I may have made one of my items on my list now... one of the skirts. It is the Yasmin Yoke skirt by Maria Denmark and I am very pleased with it.
It is a slightly A line skirt with two hip pockets and an invisible zip closure at the back. I have had the pattern for ages, but only getting around to making it now. It was a quick and straightforward make. I used a darkish blue denim for this.

|Can you see the zip? Ha ha.|
So I guess if I am to have two skirts in my spring attire, they have to be a great style for me and suit my life and I think the Yasmin works for me. Just have to get the rest of the items sorted now.
