Sewing Your Work Wardrobe

Hey, you guys!

I know it’s a been while since my last post (months to be exact), but I’m trying to adjust to this new life I have. I have recently started my career as an Area Supervisor at Ross, so it’s safe to say that I have been very busy. In a good way though.

Ever since I started working in retail, I knew that this was something that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I love that the environment is really fast paced, and I personally love the fact that my day is never the same. And on occasions you also get to spark up some really nice conversations with your customers.

Now with that being said, in the nine years that I’ve been working, I’ve always tried to avoid places that had a strict uniform policy. And I even made a vow way back in high school that I would never work in a place that had a uniform policy, now look how times have changed.

 Let’s Talk Uniform Policy

One of the requirements at Ross, is that you must wear a blue blouse of any shade (NO turquoise). At first, I was like okay this can work, until I actually started shopping for blue blouses and realizing that it can get a little frustrating. The solution: Make your own clothes.

I Work Full-Time. I Don’t Have Time To Sew.

When you’re working a full-time job, sewing might be the last thing on your mind. But a tip that I acquired from Mimi G that made so much sense, is that you do not have to sew your garment in an entire day. You can sew for 5, 10, or 15 minutes a day on your project and by the end of the week or two, you will have a finished garment. Great tip right?

What’s On My Wish List?

I’m in love with these patterns by Simplicity, the versatility of these blouses makes them perfect for casual wear and work–minus the skin showing.
