Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.
Another important thing (if not the most important thing) to look for when choosing fabric for your clothing projects is the weight . Fabric weight means how thick/heavy a fabric is, and the weight you choose depends on what you are making and the feel you want for your garment. It's a personal choice, but it also has to be practical. The different weights can be referred to as top-weight, bottom-weight, very light, light, medium and heavy.

Rob Yes. But the meaning of clothes goes far deeper than what you should or shouldn't wear in the workplace, Will. It can really influence what people think of us. Now, rightly or wrongly, they can make snap judgements - or quick decisions - about us.
Death means change our clothes. Clothes become old, then time to come change. So this body become old, and then time come, take young body.
Thank you for sharing the great information! I will definitely be visiting this lens from time to time for sewing patterns!
Yup, I am with Chris. Our HOA specifically bans hanging laundry, even in the backyard where it can t be seen! Besides, I also don t like the stiffness of line-dried clothing, and it would be my luck that I would forget it outside and some animal would do something horrible to it.

We elected to go for sunset because we are staying in Kapalua and did not want to get up at 2am for sunrise. We spent the day visiting other local attractions and headed up about 3pm. It was very cloudy and rainy going up and we had our doubts about if it was worth the trip. We had downloaded the Gypsy App for Haleakala which is a guided audio tour and it reassured us that the weather would be different at the top and it was! Sunny and clear, although the temp went from 80 down to 63 degrees at the top. The Visitors Center at the base is under construction and the one at the top is open from 10-3:30. There are restrooms at the summit. There are many switch backs and driving can be nerve racking but definitely worth the views.
A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.
I love this blog clander . I still want to meet you. I am flying to LAX on March 30 for a four nights of eating well and museums with my daughter and her film maker bf, then dash to Mammoth to ski a couple days than return to Bangor Maine airport which is 150 miles south of our island.
I absolutely love it! Stereotypes are fantastic. I often wonder if this blog is written by someone living in Evanston, IL. I really look forward to reading it. Keep it up.
In the great city where he lived, life was always gay. Everyday many strangers came to town, and among them one day came twoswindlers. They let it be known they were weavers, and they saidthey could weave the most magnificent fabrics imaginable. Notonly were their colors and patterns uncommonly fine, but clothesmade of this cloth had a wonderful way of becoming invisible toanyone who was unfit for his office, or who was unusuallystupid.
This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!
This is very true. However being a person from the mountains in the west and now living in the city on the east. I don t feel as foolish wearing my ski jacket and hat when people are using umbrellas to cover themselves from the snow that never even sticks to the ground. You can spot the posers, but then again maybe I look foolish to them. But I still don t have to carry an umbrealla around wherever I go. FACE!

To each his (or her) own. Everyone has his or her own preferences. Personally, I use a clothesline much of the time in summer, but often toss those clothes into the dryer just to fluff them. Oh, that tends to get the beetles out, too. No fun finding a beetle in your undies.
Thank you for all the useful info on sewing. I want to make my own clothes and I feel that I am capable, now that I have received great info from your blog. Thanks for sharing

A big advantage of making your own clothes is that you can choose from some amazing (and novelty) fabrics - including ones which you can use to pay homage to your favourite movie/tv program/actor etc - in fact you'll find kid's duvet covers are a great source of weird and wonderful fabrics!
You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.
