 Welcome back to DAY 2 of our Sew Yourself Some Love Blog Tour as we take a deeper look at the Y Back Sleep Set.I love that we live in the age of 'lounge wear'.  That yoga pants and a tank are as acceptable at the gym as they are at brunch or hanging with the kids at the park.  As much as I love gorgeous historical pieces, I am so glad that I don't personally have to be bogged down by all the undergarments to create those silhouettes or all the societal rules of what can be worn where,...

Sew Yourself Some Love 2020: Day 3

Welcome back to our Sew Yourself Some Love Blog Tour!!! Sewing for myself has changed the way I look at fashion and my own body.  Modern ready to wear fashion is the first time in history that clothes were not custom made or tailored to the individual... we've moved in clothing ourselves from recognizing that ever body is an individual work of art to thinking our body is wrong if it doesn't fit perfectly into the traditional sizes sold at stores.
