Holiday Greetings and Gifts

In this season of gift giving, a holiday question :
If you received an unlimited dream wardrobe of any clothes of your choice – bought, made for you, made by yourself – what would you choose ?

what styles ? crisp or soft ? fitted or swirling ? which designers if any ?
what textures ? gabardine, crepe, knit, tweed, leather, lace, silk denim, charmeuse. . . ?
what would be really important for you ?

For me – how about an infinite supply of alpaca fleece made to my own colour palette 😀

And a set of perfectly fitting slopers, made for me without any effort on my part by some magical genius. . .

And easy real reality access to a quality fabric shop with the same taste as me. . . (I’m allowed an infinite budget don’t forget, perhaps I’d better have a larger house too :D)

Sometimes I have so many ideas that I would like someone to make clothes for me. Though I really wouldn’t want to give up that surge of grinning glee when I get to the ‘Hey I made this’ stage of a project 😀

Best Wishes for your Holiday, and for all your sewing plans for 2011.

And thanks for all your interest, which makes this rewarding to do.

    I’d like some really nicely fitting tailored jackets in brights like red, turquoise etc and some pieces from Desigual (esp the coats and knit dresses).

    Your wishes sounds great…especially the one about the fabric store!

    Have a Happy Christmas!

    All Eileen Fisher all the time, that’s what I’d choose.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Sewingplum, author of my favorite blog!

      Thanks for the lovely comment !

      Yes, I’ve got some thoughts on the lovely Eileen Fisher jackets.

      And congratulations on your gloves ! I used to do a lot of hand knitting, and was happy with complex Aran patterns. But I never managed to do multi-colour knitting, and I never made a pair of gloves. . .

    Eileen Fisher. Love her look. There is a new store about an hour away from me now and I can’t wait to go and try some of her clothes on and see if they feel as amazing as they look!

    Love your blog. Recently found it as I’m just getting my sewing machine out again and have been reading through your blog getting ideas and excitement for sewing.
