Since I try and sew everyday things I felt pretty on board. But then the Winter came. And I realised there’s everyday clothing and EVERY day clothing. Everyday meaning commonplace, and every day meaning each day.
So this has been my uniform lately. And I didn’t sew any of it:
[A caveat, I'm not wearing the same skull pyjamas every day, I do wash them WHEN FORCED. I'd wear them out of the house if I could. And yes, sometimes the current cold snap demands a beanie/pyjama look.]
If I truly wanted to derive the most wear out of my sewing, shouldn’t I be stitching up PJs and a coat? Or learning how to knit a hat? These are items I can wear more than one day on the spin whereas I can’t get away with wearing the same blouse under my coat for a week (recognising that rotating my skirts and so on to a high degree is a choice, not a necessity).
In my mind it’s part of the winter coat/wedding dress debate. Is it crazy to make a dress when you’ll only wear it once? Is it crazy not to make a coat you’ll need to wear for several months on the spin?
I wouldn’t say yes to either of those statements. But it is about balancing effort versus outcome. My everyday wardrobe is more about ANY day rather than every.
How about you, every vs any? Wedding dress vs winter coat?
