New Clothes

I've been throwing the shuttle for a week and a half now, with good results:
fabrics June 2009

Three fabrics (well, four, more on the top one in another post), three garments. There is a shirt, a vest and a jacket in there; all that remains is the sewing. I might add here that I finished some silk fabric last Fall for another shirt, and all that remains is the sewing. Ahem.

I am sure no one is surprised at the colors.

So what prompted this wardrobe extravaganza? Some of you might recall SOAR in the Poconos 2008. Maggie Casey was being introduced Sunday evening, and Amy Moore put up a slide of Maggie, me and Cindy Lair from the year before.

Cindy was not on site yet, but there, in full glory, were Maggie and I, Wearing The Exact Same Clothes As The Year Before.

Obviously, we had One Good Outfit.

The truly funny part was later in the week, when Cindy showed up and She Also Had The Same Shirt On As The Year Before. No, we did not warn her.

Needless to say, Amy took another photo of us.

New Clothes are in order. It remains to be seen this Fall whether Maggie brings new clothes too. Cindy? The choice is yours.

Hey, I know I bought another pair of jeans this year, so I'm all set!

But Good Clothes are timeless, a point of making your own from scratch are that they Wear Forever unlike the junk that's foisted upon us by the fashion industry, and yours are gorgeous.

All good reasons not to worry about wearing them repeatedly.

On the other hand, New Clothes are always fun too! Have at it - I look forward to seeing the finished result.

Elizabeth is quite right. The dictum to never appear in the same outfit twice began with the very rich who could afford to change clothes many times a day and then was usurped by the fashion marketers who want you to buy more. When you spend so much time, effort and money creating your own very special garments from scratch you want to get as much mileage as possible from them. They are definitely not disposable fashion. Happy sewing!

But when you have the creativity and skill and wherewithal to utilise them, not to mention making everyone else go "wow!", it's a pity not to use them.

ah, but how will we recognize you! Just kidding. Fabrics look luscious and very Sara. Looking forward to seeing you at SOAR!

Your cloths are so well spun/woven that the clothes themselves don't show the age. They still look as fabulous now as they did then.

The new fabrics look wonderful and very much "Sara."

Bearing in mind the little saying that begins "Plus ca change" it occurs to me that a picture taken at SOAR 2010 of you and Maggie (and possibly Cindy) in your new threads might bear a striking resemblance to previous pictures.

Not that I'm implying anything. Much.

I'm just saying.

(The new fabrics are naturally quite gorgeous and utterly Sara).
