I find myself posting here less and less because I wear a lot of the same stuff. Which is great. I no longer have a ton of angst over what to wear or buy and I'm not sure exactly what changed but...actually, who cares?
I feel like I'll pop in here to either share a brand I found or like, share vegan, "green" or labor standards stuff or just to say "hey, this is my uniform" and while I wish I was better at DIY projects, they usually fall by the wayside. But today I do have some semi-DIY news - I am wearing a Mary Meyer galaxy biggie shirt. (I think that's the name of the cut.)
Originally the neck opening of this shirt was just way too big and the shirt fell off my shoulders. (Something I find with Uzi's one-size stuff, too.) And it was such a bummer because I thought I'd wear it but then realized how much I hated it either being a one-shouldered shirt or it drooping down my back as a semi-backless shirt. Thankfully before I stuck it in the give-away pile, I realized I could bring it to a tailor and have them just make it a more normal neck seam. They'd just need to bring in the neck hole and round off the extra fabric on the inside, near my shoulders. It was a fairly affordable fix for a shirt I'd already dumped some money on - and now I still get to wear it. MEND AND MAKE DO AND ALL.
I'm glad I finally came to terms with "outsourcing" my DIY because if I left it up to me dragging out the sewing machine and realizing I need to re-learn how to thread my bobbin for the 50th time in my life, it would never have been completed. So that's my lesson - don't feel bad about paying a tailor to do something you'll never actually do.
