curiousfancy 's Thoughts:

My own Christmas is promising to be rather sparse and uneventful, but I’m comforting myself with hearty, wintry food, long conversations with loved ones who are too far away to celebrate with me otherwise, and dressing up. The best thing about not having a trend focused style is that there’ll always be something at the back of your closet, something that hasn’t seen the light of day in years, but something that you suddenly realise is perfect for your current look. I bought this vintage tartan dress in 2010 but it never really fitted me so it languished at the back of my wardrobe till recently. It’s still a bit too tight at the bust but I feel rather accomplished at all the DIY I have performed on it - from chopping off 4 inches at the bottom and hemming it, to making the sleeves roomier and fixing buttonholes. I’ve always been terrified of sewing, mostly because I simply cannot muster enough patience to do it properly, but the more I force myself to sew, the easier it gets!
