    my kids give me a hard time because everytime they come over when I am sewing/quilting they say I look like I am ready to go to bed. This is b/c my fav quilting clothes are boxer shorts/t-shirts in warm weather and my sons old flannel pj pants and long sleeve t-shirts in cold weather - all accompanied by my crocs. I keep telling them that is is imperative to dress to feel relaxed to sew. They think I am just too lazy to get dressed? Do you have a favorite sewing apparel?

    Nothing wrong with being comfortable when your sew. What you wear sounds fine to me. I like to wear sweats in the winter and t-shirts and jersey knit pants in the summer.

    I am just like you I dress for comfort, even if I know some of my quilting buddies may be coming.

    I wear jeans. Pretty much all the time. Jean capris in the summer with a t-shirt. Long jeans in the winter with a sweatshirt.

    i usually wear some stretchy comfy jeans and a t-shirt. my favorite tees have all got holes in them or bleach marks cause laundry is not my forte. to me it doesn't matter if i'm in the house. i only get dressed nice if i'm going out

    I wear comfy cloths, no jeans in the house I can't stand them around my legs or stomach and this is a must............no bra. My boobs are big and the straps hurt my shoulders. Funny thing is I wear the same type of cloths during the day that I also sleep in but when I get up in the morning I change. It doesn't make sense to me I could just stay in sweats all day that I slept in. For that matter I could wear them for a week and not shower just put more deoderant on.........ONLY KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!

    jammies are for quilting and dreaming and we do our best work in our dreams!!! I love my sweats they are comforable since I am up and down and jeans just do not work well for my back.

    Tell them to buzz off. It is YOUR house and YOU can do what YOU want.

    Sounds like the fashion police have arrived at your door. I wear whatever i want to be warm and comfy. Sometimes sweats, PJ, whatever the mood stikes me.

    I basically live in sweat pants and tee shirts, during the winter I'll have a sweat shirt on and warm, chewed up slippers. LOL It IS your house, you can wear whatever you want though.

    Wear what you want.

    I wear jeans, t-shirt and crocs. And if in the winter add a sweatshirt jacket.

    It's your home do what you want to. If they don't like it let the door hit them going out.

    Most of the time I am wearing my pj pants and a t-shirt. I want to feel comfy when I am sewing/quilting. But I am usually covered in threads and fuzz from fabrics so it really is hard to tell what I have on. Haha!

    If I am at home, ripped up jeans and a t shirt, or sweatshirt.....well, I guess I wear that pretty much all the time unless I am at work.
