    I am curious. How many of you ladies wear just your handmade clothing or at least one piece everyday? How many of your own creations do you have?

    I have a closetful of dresses and skirts I have made, a few tops, and a couple jackets. I go through phases of wearing my homesewn things, and usually wear the dresses in the summer, when its cold here I'm not so motivated.

    I wear mine everyday. The only time I wear RTW is when I'm cleaning/gardening, ect. Even with my handmade t shirts, I can't stand the thought of my handmade garments getting wrecked.

    I only have a few handmade creations (working on that- I made 5 skirts last year, working on a few boleros, dresses, and suits this year) but I've decided that I am going to concentrate more on things I get the most wear out of. I used to only make very fancy dresses (think weddings and historical outfits) but I've realized that I can't show them off, because I don't wear them that often.

    I've also realized that my handmade stuff is at least as good in quality as the stuff you buy, if not better. It's tough enough to take daily wear.

    Kamikat, I figured you wore your clothes often. You've made so many wonderful pieces.

    Ok I think I need to hide this pattern from myself. So far I have made two pairs of jeans and four pairs of shorts. I made these two shorts today and added a little embroidery to the jeans last night. I just did the large cherries not the small ones.

    That is a really cute pattern. Is it vintage? Love the cherries!!

    I made a duvet cover and pillow shams for our guest bedroom this week. I wasn't a fan of my old one so here is what I made

    Not vintage, I found the denim fabric with cherries on it at Joann's. I went back to get more but it was gone
