I hardly ever buy clothes these days, mostly because I find most store offerings very uninspiring. It's not that the clothes in stores are bad, really, but all this sewing has made my taste so specific, so particular, that it's becoming harder and harder to find anything that matches my preferences. But these four gems are another story - they are giving me serious cravings. And also a whiff of consumer guilt. It's weird that I seldom flinch when spending money on fabrics and notions, but feel queasy when I think about forking up money on a pre-made garment. Clearly my thought process lacks a certain stringency in this area. That said, it's nice to see that I can still find things that makes my heart tick, pre-made or not.
