Sewing to Enhance Your Wardrobe

W = Wardrobe

When I first started sewing, I thought most of my projects would center on home décor. But so far, I’ve already used my sewing machine to hem a pair of jeans and make a cute apron, and I’ve seen tons of bloggers out there sewing adorable dresses and clothes that fit them perfectly.

I’ve even come across some wardrobe-related sewing projects I would love to tackle myself. Take, for instance, this sash skirt by Amy at This Big Oak Tree:

I think it’s incredibly cute, and she offers a helpful tutorial on her blog. Have you sewn or altered any items in your wardrobe?

    That skirt is so cute! I’ve only done a little bit of hand sewing for replacing buttons, but I’d like to try a much bigger project like an apron or even some placemats!

      Hi Michelle! You should try something. Placemats sound doable :)

    Oh Kelly, That skirt is really nice. I bet it would like great on you. I used to sew a bit years ago and I have made some very simple skirts. I haven’t touched my sewing machine in years, but you are beginning to inspire me here. :)

      Glad to be inspiring! (And I didn’t even sew this!)

    I used to sew almost all the clothing for myself and my family. Seems a lifetime ago. I’m trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. My alphabet is at myqualityday.blogspot.com
