One of the reasons for this being that I had decided I would not buy fabric out of habit, that I would try to recycle fabric and also that I had enough clothes. I did make a couple of items that took a lot of time then got zero wear. The black blouse I made here did not look great on, I did not like the short style or the fabric I chose but sometimes this just happens!
I have noticed some gaps in my wardrobe mainly being tops to go with jeans that I wear a lot, I will be making more of these in the new year and I nearly started one today but the fabric I had was a large piece so needed to be a dress really.
I have made many of the same style of dress because I like to get use out of what I make. There is a reason we buy or make much of the same stuff and that is usually because we know what suits us. Sometimes going for something just for a change means it sits unworn in our wardrobe.
