my mom used to make her own dresses. i remember seeing photos of her in her pink tulle gowns, daffodil frocks. she taught me to sew, and i’ve since lost the skill.
it’s 2018 and i see women reclaiming handicrafts, embroidering empowered vulgarities into linen, roses, vests. their pinpricked fingers and callused hands weaving, cross-stitching, quilting fabric that is anything but delicate.
i browse antique shops and vintage stores, walking through aisles of women’s masterpieces that’ve outlasted their makers. more than hobbyist, she is. not just a gown, that is, passing by in the window display. we’ve dressed this world with legacy— the body, its clothes. taken it for granted even when it’s so close.
Who else loveeess decorating with lots of patterns, colors, and little random things? I tried to purge of all my stuff & live a less cluttered life but that was soooo hard! I grew up in a house that basically looks like an antique shop so bare walls really freak me our & make me not feel like I’m in my own home... ⠀
has anyone else tried to live like a minimalist? It’s so hard! But we all have different levels of it I guess. I got better about my level of crap haha but I couldn’t get it down to nothing haha
