Have you made something not because you loved the style but for other reasons, ie. the pattern looks easy to make, the leftover fabric would just be enough to make this… to satisfy a sudden sewing urge, etc.? Then, do you actually wear the item or does it take permanent place in your closet?
The wing dress which was made using fabric I bought for my niece’s dress (I then found nicer and softer fabric for her 🙂 ) was in danger of being a permanent closet resident.
Until I bought a belt for it.
Now it is the most-worn item in my handmade collection! ^^
Belt: Forever 21
Before I started sewing, I did not pay much attention to fashion or styling (my closet was pretty much full of black or more daringly grey or navy colored classic pieces). Sewing leads me to think more about how I can pair up accessories with my handmade clothes to make them look better, and makes me more tempted to try different colors and styles (I love black pants and white t-shirts but I am more interested (hobby-wise) to sew a pink dress, or a flowery blouse for instance:)
How did sewing change your perspective on clothing?
