I've never been good at keeping promises.
Especially to myself, I go "I WILL do this, and it will be fabulous!" and it comes around to the time where I address what I've done and... nope. Didn't do it.
Karen is a special sort of crazy, and has recorded a whopping amount of 187 sewing resolutions for 2013, stuck them in a jar, and come the beginning of next year, those 187 people will be held accountable to her and her blog about the resolutions.
I only put one of my sewing resolutions in the jar, and that's because I fear this will be the one thing that I won't stick to - I'm seemingly afraid of colour. I like red, sure, but my clothing is predominantly BLACK.
And black is cool, I suppose, but ultimately boring.
So I pledge, that by this time next year I will have branched out from my plain blacks and reds;
I will make at the absolute least three items that are not black.
I will make at least three items that are not plain.
I will also step out of my comfort zone and make at least one non-full-skirted dress/skirt, one dress with sleeves, and step away from concealed zips on dresses.
These are my pledges, and once I'm standing before Did You Make That, I will have made some beautiful clothes that are not black.
Ideas and inspiration for using/working with patterned fabric and/or getting some colour into the wardrobe are quite welcome!
