cynicalcarnivale asked: Hi there, I stumbled on your blog via a reblog from Put this ON. As a seamstress/tailor/"alterationist" myself I am delighted that you are doing your own alterations and exploring sewing. I'm saddened when guys can't even re-sew a simple button. In any case, I've subscribed to your blog and am looking forward to future posts. Margaret
Thank you for your kind words! Glad to have a new follower.
I’m working on something currently, and hopefully I can get it up and running soon.
As someone who grew up in thrift stores there are some things that come really naturally to me that I see people doing “wrong” all the time when I’m in the racks.
Also, though thrift blogs have started to proliferate, they typically focus on the “what” rather than the “how”. I think how you shop…
Great advice, and well, as a thrifting blog myself, I pretty much have to reblog.
By the way, have you visited his Etsy Store yet? Go for the clothes, stay for the funny descriptions.
I know that I’ve not been posting very much lately. A combination of other hobbies, a lack of thrifting, and honestly, a lack of drive to do alterations have collided and resulted in very little in terms of fit pictures or articles. I haven’t stopped caring about what I wear; I still make sure to dress well, but I just haven’t bought or done much in terms of new material for you all.
As I alluded to Monday, I have been working on a little project to get my creative juices going again. Just so I don’t get too long winded yet, I’ll just tell you what I did.
I made a denim jacket. Out of a pair of pants.
What was that? You lost your old card case, the one in which you used to store your six Amex Centurion cards? You’ve got no place to hold your solid gold access card to the eye of The Statue of Liberty and the numbers of the four Victoria’s Secret models you just ran into?
Well you happen to…
