where is my thimble
Feng shuit wardrobe activity I am fixing clothes that need fixing. Like pants I bought at some point that are too long that I said I could just hem and then —
[This happens a lot because I am not tall. Damn. It.]
If I were really savvy I would drop stuff with a tailor and hems would be done in a jiff no aches no pains but I have been sewing since I was three so paying someone else to sew is decadent to me. The irony being, buying pants I never wear because they have not been hemmed is more decadent but anyway —
Last night I did hems and pockets. On everything except the jeans. [Pockets is when you have clothes that are great but they hang wrong because the pockets like to gape and ruin the shape. So you sew those pockets closed.] Jeans I cannot do without a machine because denim is too thick. But even with soft fabrics you end up with a lot of little pin pricks in your finger tips when you sew without a thimble.
Now I have pants that are not too long. And lots of little holes in my finger tips.
