work uniform- every day.
I love clothing and fashion and thinking about personal style but to be honest, I wear this outfit 5+ days a week.
I'm dyeing & cutting fabric and making models and it's dirty and messy.
These are my favorite work jeans, from @target which are 5-6 years old (maybe more?) and I wear them 5+ times a week & wash them 1-2 times a week and they aren't showing any wear.
I also wear my favorite box tee and sweatshirt from @everlane and these are wearing pretty well too, although they are only about 2+ years old.
Even though this is my work uniform, it feels good to me, like me, and I don't necessarily feel unfashionable in it. Does that make sense?
Curious: what do you wear for work clothes?

I'm currently photographing all of my clothing to upload into a wardrobe planning app, in hopes it will get me to wear some of my loved but lesser worn items, and to see where my wardrobe holes are.
I'm considering @cladwellapp & the capsule wardrobe app from @kelseyleftwich.
Anyone have any others they like?
(This is another linen top I made this summer in addition to the other linen pieces I posted at the end of the summer. I've actually worn this more than the others and think I will continue to wear it layered under sweaters and coats this winter. I think part of the reason I wear it so much is that the color goes with everything I own.)

2 things:
This coat. It might not look like much but it's my favorite piece of clothing. I got it over 20 years ago at @diesel when I lived in San Francisco. I wear it almost every day during spring and fall and it's getting pretty shabby. And almost every time I wear it someone comments on it.
Anyway that's what I think of when I think of #sustainablefashion
Pieces that you love and want to keep forever. I wanted to document this because I'm going to try to make a pattern from this coat for #slowfashionoctober so I can make a new one. (Strange fact- I was recently at a party and met a woman who said she has the same coat and also loves it)
2. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 if you made it this far.
I hate my glasses and need some recommendations on where to get new ones (other than warby) preferably with home try on.

On our way into the boundary waters canoe area. We hiked up to the top of that ridge and we could see Canada 🇨🇦 (and made a little time to visit the big lake too)
I'm so happy the trees aren't turning quite yet, because these greens are incredible and I'm not a fan of fall colors....

finally pulled out the manual and started reading - maybe in another 5 months I'll be able to turn it on 🙄

We save all the selvedge edges from the handdyed @shopscarfshop scarves. Over the years they've been piling up...
and I've been wondering what to do with them.
I've done a little experimenting with weaving them and more recently with using them for rug hooking, both of which worked well.
I'm thinking of bundling them into weaving packs and offering them for sale on the website but I'm wondering what all of you weavers/fiber people think- would you have any interest?

I made a goal this summer to make some clothing pieces for myself to fill some gaps in my wardrobe.
I also decided I would only use fabric I already had.
I started out with a basic summer jumpsuit, and ended up making three to get the fit just right.
Next I made a super simple white tank (can't believe I didn't already have this). I love the details on this.
Lastly I wanted a simple shirt dress. I ran short on fabric for this one, so it's a tunic, but it has pockets and I love it.
Felt good to sew for myself after a long time of not doing it.
All patterns are my own.
All the fabric is linen.
