I have probably mentioned here that I rarely buy retailed clothes for me. I only supply socks, tights, and some kinds of underwear from the stores but that is all. If I feel like new clothes, I plan to make them. If I don't long for anything new for my closet, I'd stay sitting like the humongous rock of a deserted mountain. My sewing is based on my real life. But at the same time, expectedly, when I seek something for fun, I play using my skill(=sewing) too!

I like Jodhpur-style pants very much and I sewed a new pair recently. In case you wonder, I tell you that I don't do horse riding, nor any healthy sporty kind of activities on the earth at all, because I'm an indoor nerd. But I love Jodhpurs and think they're really cool, fashionwise. I remember that Balenciaga's coolest Jodhpurs in fall 2007 stole my heart and ever since I couldn't stop wanting my own wearable pairs of that kind. Since then, I periodically sew another new pair. You can see two of them here(this pair is almost identical to the new one to your eyes, I know!) and here too. All my versions are genuine fake and somehow look funny because they're plain 3-tuck pants with narrowed lower half without clever calculation, though, I love them so much. I guess I'm rather enjoying them including their imperfections. I mean, those imperfect pairs suit me in a good way. I like to be influenced by the trend in fashion, but I also like to pretend that I'm not a typical fashion victim (which is a lie) too. I think that sewing helps me to introduce fashionable elements into my outfit in a good and subtle way, a lot, because my technical issues naturally lead to the point of happy medium. I really hope you know what I mean!
By the way, in the picture above, I'm wearing a T-shirt that I refashioned using my DD's old Zara top. She wore it often in the last autumn, but she said it was no longer loved at all at the end of the season. Although the top looked pretty tired, I refashioned it into T-shirt in my size, as the sequin decorated gigantic butterfly seemed intact and pretty. I ripped all seams except the neckline carefully and assembled it to a basic cute T-shirt. I prefer the result very much! yeah... home sewing is powerful, isn't it.
Sewing is a wonderful ingredient of my life!
