I am like that with clothes to a certain extent. I see something and I love it but trying it on makes me see that actually I don't have the right shape for this or the colour does nothing for me. Sometimes we need to try something different to see if it works.
Recently my mother in law sent me a huge pile of fabric. She asked several times if I'd done something with it so I devoted an entire weekend to The Tunic.
I bought this book sometime ago but never got around to using it. The fabric wasn't what I would choose but as I said before, I don't always make good choices so what the heck here goes.
From the one pattern I made 3 tunics so far.
And another tunic dress is in progress. I don't know if the tunic is my thing but it's comfortable to wear and practical for the finca. The addition of extra darts and a zip should make the tunic dress more formal. A special occasion wear perhaps. It's all in an effort to find 'my style'. I would love to find a look that suits me and then just vary the fabric and the colours to produce a hand made wardrobe. But I am fickle and I'm not sure I could dedicate myself to one particular style.
And then there is the thing that we don't always see ourselves the same as everyone else sees us. I remember a close relative gave me a bag once saying 'I saw this and it's just so YOU, I had to buy it for you'. I looked at the multicoloured plastic monstrosity with horror and a feigned smile 'oh you shouldn't have' was never so apt!
