  1. I’m so impressed with your wardrobe building plans. I’ve been a bit stuck with sewing and it’s due to wanting to sew the ‘right’ clothing…you know, things I need and things that I will really love. So…I really will try and do something similar.

    I have DKNY 1488 and I’m looking forward to sewing it. I’m just having a challenge getting the right fabric. The way the pattern fronts are laid out…off the straight of grain…makes a lot of prints unsuitable.

    • Thanks Sue! I sooo needed all this planning since I had such limited work appropriate clothing. It really helped me stop and think before purchasing fabric. I’m always drawn to the prints so it was hard sticking to all neutrals. But I love how everything is working together. I figure once I have a working wardrobe I can take a break and just sew for fun. I can’t wait to make that DKNY dress. I’m sticking to a solid color because of those layouts.

    That’s a lot of planning and research Rebecca but all fabulous styles. You’ll be boardroom-ready.
    Looking forward to seeing your work wardrobe.

    • Thanks so much Ruth! I find the planning just as fun as the sewing. Looking forward to sharing my new clothes! :)

    I’m super intrigued by the lantern sleeved top! That’s going to be spectacular.

    This is such a sophisticated set of sewing plans! How cool! I have been panicking a bit lately because I will be interning next semester and I don’t have any office-appropriate clothes (my current job is very dirty so I wear junky clothes, and in my previous life I worked outdoors in all weather… I’ve never had a job where I couldn’t wear jeans and a t-shirt!). I’ll be going through your Pinterest boards eagerly for inspiration!

    • Thanks Sonja! This is surprisingly one of my first jobs where I do need to be well dressed! My last visual jobs pre-kids were super casual. I feel so elegant in my new work clothes. I wish I had started dressing like earlier! Good luck on the intern job!
