Two Nights, Two Dresses, One Bra.

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I received my vintage 1970's lingerie pattern in the mail finally last Friday. Last night I got a chance to test out the pattern, and make a few tweeks. It's a little pointy, but that's how it's supposed to be, and I kind of like it like that.

I now have a complete three piece set - the panties, camisole, and bra. I find this one, which has no stretch to it, a little tight on me. I'm going to make one in a jersey tonight, if I have time.


I did this as a bit of a test, so I used old bra fastenings and straps that I cut off an old bra (I have a lot of old bra's just laying around). I kind of like the idea of recycling old hardware.


This week is going painfully slow. I'm getting more and more anxious to get up and go. The more I think about it, the more I realize I'm not getting any further ahead in my life by staying here. While I'm afraid of being out of work and struggling or being a burden on Dan or my family, I feel like it I'd basically be in the same position as I am now; I rely on them for quite a bit because my expenses in the city are so high. So... In order to make myself feel better, I'm going to play a game: "See how little you can spend!"

I know it sounds pretty boring... and down right awful, but if I'm going to be out of work, I want to have a bit of a nest egg set aside. So, on the menu for the next few weeks is dollar store pasta, microwave cake, and canned fruit. Mmm mmm... Let's see how I do!

So, I've cut my cable, cut my going out expenses, stopped buying lunch, am going to sew my spring and summer wardrobe out of clearance only fabric (!), and will dollar store grocery shop. I feel like I'm back in college. But... my frugality will be worth it (I hope).
