Plaid About You




There is nothing better than when my mom makes me clothes. For as long as I can remember, she's made me clothing. I even recall walking in a fashion show with her that featured us in matching mother-daughter creations... We have it on tape and it is priceless! I clearly was not into it, and would do the bare minimum to just get it over with. My mom was a good sport thought and didn't let my moodiness spoil her own fun. She'd leave me standing in the middle of the runway while she would walk to the end, pose, twirl, etc. and collect me on her way back! I did not cry, or have a fit, I was just unfazed by the whole thing. That attitude would be in complete contrast to the one I'd have today, should I get the opportunity again. Needless to say, I always enjoyed wearing the clothes she made me and is the one person I still turn to when I want something I simply can't find. That was the case a few years ago when I was looking for a red plaid skirt. I was just not finding one I liked. I therefore asked my mom if she could make me one. We went to Fabricland (a favourite of hers) and found the perfect tartan fabric. I now have my bespoke skirt and could not be happier with it! It's made to measure and my mom is pro at matching the pattern! She even lined it for me and hid the button closures. I will be hanging on to this piece for years to come!
