So today I had another post planned but decided to postpone it until later because after seeing a Today news segment that actually aired today, it helped me focus my post and plans which I will post later this week.

Like many women I have clothes in my closet that I just don’t wear the segment mentioned that a New York Times article says that most only wear about 20% . Now don’t get me wrong I like all of the clothes in my closet but for some reason or another I just don’t seem to pull some of them out a lot. Most of the time it is because it just doesn’t fit with my stay at home homeschooling mom/wife that loves to walk lifestyle and then fit is a close second. So I decided to try and make at least 80% of my wardrobe. Most of what I do wear are things that I made and even more of that are from patterns that I drafted myself.

There are many sewing plans such as SWAP to be found on the web and some even have sew alongs and or parts like the Colette Wardrobe Architect. But for my limited amount of time I don’t always want to be reading this new article or this new installment to some series, I know what I like and I know what works for me and this article helped me focus on how much I should aim for.

So my goal number is 30, 30 item that is and 24 of those I hope to sew myself. Also   I will try to focus my sewing on one season at a time. Up next Fall sewing plans.

Until next time, happy sewing…
