Sewing a Handmade Wardrobe: Why I Won't Be Buying Clothes in 2017 | SEWING REPORT
That’s right – if I want a new shirt, dress, or scarf, I will be sewing it myself instead of heading to the mall.

New Year’s resolutions aren’t something I normally participate in, but I feel compelled to take control over my wardrobe in 2017.
I have decided not to purchase any clothing for this entire year.
A huge benefit to learning the classic skill of sewing is being able to make my own custom tailored pieces in the fabrics of my choice. This is amazingly freeing. No worrying about finding styles I like in the right fabric and fit.
Am I an expert seamstress? No.
Can women make their own clothes? FOR SURE!

ABOUT SEWING REPORT:
Helping you discover your love of sewing at sewingreport.com through videos, articles, and tutorials. I aim to inject humor, passion, and realism into this space.
Let me introduce myself – I’m Jennifer Moore – Atlanta-based sewing & quilting enthusiast since 2013 and television journalist with 14+ years of experience.
Ever since I discovered sewing soon after moving from the Tampa Bay area in Florida to Atlanta, I’ve been absolutely hooked. My love of all things involving a needle and thread has driven me to brainstorm ideas of how I could contribute to the community and help to encourage others to learn to sew. If I can do it, you really can too!
I’d love to hear from you! Connect with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested in collaborating on a video with me? I’m up for that too!
