That Denim Jacket: The Wardrobe Fit-Along Continues

Unless you regularly read my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow me live on Pericope, you wouldn't know that I have been consistently working on a Wardrobe Fit-Along since July of last year 2015 in collaboration with Sew Much Fabric, an online fabric store based out of Texas.  We began with the White Shirt, then the Sheath dress, then I took a holiday break and did a holiday sequin skirt tutorial.  Currently we have been working on the denim jacket.  This Wardrobe Fit-Along is an ongoing process that I have been making regular videos for in order to discuss and tackle particular fitting issues found with each particular garment type and style in relation to different body compositions.

Why I "Stitch Fix" and Sew

I love to sew, who doesn't like sewing?  If you read this blog, then its probably no secret that I utilize help on a regular basis for suggestions on what to sew.  I have so many ideas that swim in my head, but I don't like shopping in stores to try on clothes just to be disappointed.  I like having someone keep up with fashion details for me by considering my taste and my style.  That is what this Stitch Fix service is....they review my Pinterest boards, my blog, and watch my Youtube videos to get to know me and then they send me articles of clothing that they feel will work for me.  To say the least, I am really surprised at how well this lady has been doing for me.  This is my journey for a great wardrobe that I don't need to do all the work for, considering sewing isn't working for me.  I do loathe sewing a garment and it not work estesthically for me or my preferences in dress.  All the patterns out there and all the styles available, I just don't have the time, or inclination to sew things that I absolutely am not sure will work for my taste, my body AND my style all at the same time.  I do not like discarding good makes because they were great fitting garments, yet did not fit my taste and style.
