    I usually wear what I might wear to an appointment since I dress business casual. Nothing fancy. Knit top and pants but always ready to show property or go shopping or sewing. I have a lint roller nearby if needed. My furbaby sometimes collects remnants.

    I guess after years of having stains, etc on me from my kids and now going to threads, the threads don't bother me. So much easier to remove than those "unknown" stains that pop up from no where. It seams we are magnents to them when we have kids.

    I usually wear either jeans and a t-shirt or sweatshirt, or fleece pj pants.
    I'm also without bra unless I go out. I have far fewer headaches that way. Cotton shifts in summer & men's shirts in winter are my sewing & yard work attire.

    I usually wear a t-shirt and jeans/shorts when I sew, unless I am going somewhere; then I wear a bib apron.
    My dogs often lay on the floor beside my machine, so they can be colorful thread magnets too. The black dogs are especially colorful with threads a fabrics snippets on them.

    I use to always have to keep the lint roller handy just from having my fur babies when I was still teaching, and even then I missed some. I had a big white kitty at the time too. Some started calling me the dog lady. Oh Well! I went down to my dad's one day, and I had just got up from my sewing machine without thinking, and as I started to sit down at my dad's I seen I was covered in threads.

    I am the lint brush! I often change before running out or just figure people will have to put up with it. I am a quilter after all. I normally wear spandex pants or jeggins, comfy T-shirt material shirt and a very long sweater. The sweater especially attracts thread and lint.

    I dress as I would dress for the day. Today it is 10 degrees, so it's jeans, a sweater and my slippers.
    Cute story: I was busy working on a wedding dress (a lifetime ago, I designed wedding dresses) and I remembered I needed to run to the grocery store for lunch supplies. I ran out of the house to go to the small local meat market. I forgot and left my tape measure around my neck. I asked the butcher for a quarter yard of salami. He asked " how much is a quarter yard?" And without thinking, I grabbed my tape measure and said "four and one half inches". His response was " you having a big get-together, cuz that sure is a lot of salami? !"
    Everyone got a good laugh. I was not the least embarrassed, and he and I would always laugh at how straight-faced he was when he asked me.
    On several occasions I have been accused of sitting around eating Bon Bons instead of having a "real" job. I had one of those (actually several) and feel it is my business, BUT, I have found if I take a "business" attitude about my quilting/sewing/embroidery and dress in a more business-casual style, I get more done. No pj's, sweats, or stained clothes. I feel accomplished when I dress for (sewing/quilting embroidery) success.

    Jeans, shirt... When it gets colder, I add a nice down vest or some days one of my college sweatshirts. I get dressed every day so that if I need to leave the house, it is not a production at that point. The one thing I don't wear are shoes since my foot pedal is one of the air bubble ones- an older Elna and I use my big toe to "drive" the machine.

    I look at it this way, I spent the first have of adult hood wearing something put there by one of my little ones, I rarely had anything on that didn't have something somewhere. Now, I wear threads, I prefer the threads at least they come out. How about an apron smock, look for some of the apron patterns and you might find one you like.

    I just wear what ever I fans you for that day. Threads seem to follow me when I go outside. I've got lint roller but it never seems to catch them all. I also hate that thread you never find until you are showing a quilt. There is always one

    Sweats...and my walking shoes. I have to carry my senior Corgi up and down the steps so that he can keep me company. He is too old to run up and down a full flight of stairs these days and I cannot take a chance on him getting seriously hurt. I get more things done around the house when I am wearing shoes vs. slippers.
