    It depends on what time of day. If it's morning usually my sleep pants and t-shirt. If later I'm usually in jeans and a comfy shirt.

    Robe, jammies, t shirt, sweats, jeans, sweatshirt. Whatever I happen to have on and if I am not comfortable with what I have on, something comes off and something more comfy goes on, sometimes!

    A sleeveless housedress or sleeveless shirt and shorts most of the year, a caftan or tee and shorts/capris in the cooler "winter" == no bra!

    I wear shorts and polo shirts around the house with comfy sneakers. I can wear this "uniform" three seasons (sometimes more :D ) a year here in South Texas. I switch to jeans and hoodies when it gets cold. I usually wear my hair in a high ponytail because I can't stand it in my face when I'm working. And I always wear a bra, except when I'm sleeping...otherwise, they just seem to get in the way! :lol:

    Thahnk God!!!! Yes...I knew I wasn't the only one who thought that bras should be banned!!! Invented by a man no doubt!! I wear dark t's with shirts over them when I am out and can get away without wearing one in public most of the time. Wear one only when I know I will be hugging someone and wouldn't want to embarass them!! LOL

    I dress for comfort. And what you wear is about the same as my sewing/quilting outfits. Cool in summer and warm in winter.

    Anyway, in the summer, if nobody is around I quilt in a sleeveless teeshirt and panties. The rest of the year, I usually wear a teeshirt and shorts or thin PJ like sweats. No shoes ever. And nothing ever that feels tight.
    Hey that sounds like my room until I got awnings in July they really keep that afternoon sun out. temp is never over 80.

    When you have to get dressed everyday to go to work I love to come home and take off my work clothes and bra of course and get comfy, if somebody comes to my door they see what they get, if they don't like it they don't have to come or call first and give me some warning and of course I don't even have to answer the door if it is a soliciter!

As for what I wear, I gave up jeans years ago as they never are comfortable for me and I make my own dresses, ones with out zips that I can pull on over my head and have pockets in them,then a comfy pair of socks as I prefer no shoes when sewing, not even slippers.
    Read it before and what a hoot, I am from that generation and we used to wear hats and gloves to church too!

    I have to sew with no shoes too. When I take classes I wear slip ons so I can take it off while my foot is on the pedal. I feel I have more control on the foot pedal.

    I wear something very comfortable, just like you. I have many pairs of those pajama looking pants for winter, and shorts (baggy) with sleeveless t-shirts in spring/summer.
    Who can sew for hours at a time if they are not totally comfortable? I sew in my bare feet, winter or summer.
