I’m getting bored of seeing myself on such a regular basis, so please feel free to skip this post if you’re suffering from MMMay fatigue 😉 Seriously, I won’t be offended in the slightest, see you next post…
Sunday was a lazy day at home (and yet more marking, I work for an exam board every Summer, so knee-deep in it at the moment). This was the only Colette Mabel I didn’t put away for ‘Summer’, oddly my least well made one, but the most worn. Think it must be the colours…
Monday caused me to reach into the depths of my wardrobe for this Colette Sorbetto top. This is surprisingly well-made for one of my really early makes. Seeing a fair few Sorbettos popping up in MMMay round-ups made me consider making another one of these, but after wearing a couple this week, it’s just not quite fitted enough for my shape to make it work for me, which is a shame, but good to know.
Tuesday was was another drizzly day here in the Northwest. My umbrella’s seriously worn out from all the recent use (yes ‘Summer‘ that was addressed directly at you). I wore my smokey-grey combo, love this, but if I make another of these skirts, I’ll definitely line it. This shows up everything you tuck in.
Wednesday was my usual day off, ironically spent marking. Ho hum! I wore my other Sorbetto top, again this is ok, and pretty well-made, but not a pattern to return to again.
Thursday caused me to reach for my BHL Charlotte in navy boucle. And my second BHL Charlotte came out on Friday in navy tweed with black, lace trim (it came out too short originally).
I gave myself a free pass on Saturday as we had a family wedding and I already had an outfit planned. And today I wore my blue gingham Sorbetto again, as seen above, but so hung over (always the sign of a good wedding), that even the thought of taking a photo proved too much 😉 Sorry, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Well, one more week to go and I think for me, it could be the hardest. Turns out I have plenty of memakes for the working week. But it’s half term and I’m seriously lacking in the Summer casual department. Definitely something to work on for the rest of the Summer. Hope everyone else has a good week,
