Handmade Summer Staples

I’ve been sewing a lot from my stash recently and really beginning to be dedicated to making my wardrobe more handmade. SO, that means actually wearing (more than once) the items of clothing that I make. I love sewing (like LOVE sewing)… so for me, the thrill is to make it and wear it maybe once. Sometimes I get tired of people asking me “Did you make that?” My response is usually a shied, “yes…” I’m not really embarrassed, but I just don’t like attention to be focused solely on me and what I’m wearing. But I’ve tried to pump myself up and be more enthusiastic about the fact that YES, I do make my own clothes (obviously not all of them– I still love to shop!) and YES I am proud of it.
So, after much rambling, here are a couple of my favorite handmade Summer staples.
