I’m beginning to think I may have set my MMMay pledge a little too low as I’ve at least met, if not overachieved my aim each week. And believe me overachieving isn’t a term I’d have applied to myself in the last few years since having kids, more like just-about-achieving! Well, at least I have a benchmark for next year now.
Enjoying Tatton Park in the sunshine, wearing my denim, Colette Ginger skirt, fast becoming a favourite. This was prior to my MeMade mishap…
Debuting my Colette Ginger in navy linen (above right).
Excuse the bad lighting on this one, grabbed a quick photo first thing, before work. Wearing unblogged Sewing Bee Circle skirt and matching Colette Sorbetto top (I had plenty of leftover fabric).
And finally braving the rain, and yes, this is more typical of our usual Manchester weather, though the sun has made a welcome change these past couple of weeks. Wearing my navy, linen Colette Ginger skirt (again), for work.
Another week of skirts (and a clear ‘blue’ theme). Clearly, along with dresses, the most used items in my wardrobe, especially if it’s term time and I’m at school. So I guess my sewing projects have been pretty spot on, if a little ‘dressy’ at times perhaps, but so be it!
Me made wardrobe gaps identified so far? Sleeves! And knits (eek! I really am going to have to bite the bullet on this one). There’s also a noticeable lack of trousers, but as the only ones I actually wear tend to be jeans at the weekends, I’m going to totally disregard this one as they’re so far beyond my skills set at the moment.
So, the twin needle beckons… Cue drum rolls and theme music from Jaws 🙂
