On this journey of sewing my capsule wardrobe, it’s really teaching me the value that should be associated to the cost of clothing.
The actual sewing component of making clothing is the least time consuming aspect, it truly is all the other stuff that takes so much time. From printing and cutting patterns, to cutting fabric, pinning, ironing and measuring, these really are way more time consuming than the actual sewing.
With all the hours I’ve spent sewing so far and with the money I’ve spent on fabric, I can’t help but think of all the people not being paid fair wages. I’ve known about this problem for years…it’s just now I actually know how long adult clothing takes to make and the associated costs—making the picture so much clearer. 😥
