The reason for this is that at the ripe ol' age of 21 - I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This basically means I messed up a nerve in my wrist, suffer from constant pins and needles in my right hand.. and it cramps. A lot.
So on the doctor's orders, I've been wearing a sexy-ass wrist brace and been "taking it easy" - which meant a break from sewing. And typing. And writing. And drawing. Oh God, it's been boring!
But I've been thinking about sewing a lot lately [You never miss things until they're gone!], as well as the blog, and come to the conclusion that I need to go back to exactly why I sew. Because I shouldn't be sewing for the blog, or to impress people - I should sew, and got into sewing because, I want clothes that I like, that fit me, and that reflect me as a person.
The reason why I ever started sewing was pure and simple - Style.
|That brooch is actually a merkin. Yeah. That sort of merkin.|
And so I'm bringing an aspect of personal style into the blog - me-made style, if you will - for two reasons; I make clothes, why don't I show off just how I wear them? And I'm in a rut with my style - I don't do much lately, so I want to motivate myself to look fabulous all the time.
To kickstart; My polkadot circle skirt! Paired with pretty much nothing but Primark crap. No seriously. Bar the necklace and 'brooch', it's all Primark. I'm not ashamed.
And so that kicks off a me-made style part of the blog - onwards and upwards from here! And hopefully my wonky face will stop being wonky in future!
For now; Thank you for reaching 10,000 views on my blog, and thank you to the 50+ followers that all came about in my little break - you guys are awesome!
