I made it to June! I can't begin to tell you how amazing it felt to throw on a pair of jeans and a tee on Saturday morning. I missed having the option over the course of the past month. The lack of pants/shirts in my Me-Made clothing was glaring. I have a little bit of catch-up to do, since I skipped a post last Sunday. Here's a run-down of the last two weeks.
This bird skirt is an oldie. It was blogged at some point, but I'm unable to track it down.
The weather threw a lot of curve balls throughout the course of the month. We spanned the scope of the thermometer. This particular day, I BOILED wearing this silk skirt.
And, the very next day, I needed to call upon my Grace cardigan to keep me comfortable while I rocked my slither blouse.
The weather stayed cool for several days. I felt lucyk to have so many great sweaters to turn to. I wore my Serina cardigan...
...on 'Theme Friday' (hometown), I wore my February Fitted Pullover...
...the following afternoon, I wore my White Pines cardigan.
As the month went on, it became increasingly my mission to wear as few repeated outfits as possible, so I dug deep. I pulled out and wore this June Bug dress with my April Showers cardigan.
Monday, we enjoyed a lazy day off work, and I wore my Kalajoki socks while I puttered around the house.
Surprise, surprise, I wore my Grace cardigan AGAIN. If I had a dozen sock weight black cardigans, I would wear them all, tirelessly.
Then, our weather started to behave itself,and I was able to wear this dress. I pulled this one from the back of my closet. I never blogged this. I'd almost forgotten about it. But, now that I've revisited it, I can't wait to try making it again. The pattern is an 80's Vogue pattern: 7891.
I didn't get a photo on the 30th, but I did wear this pullover; in fact, I wore almost exacltly what I'm wearing in those photos taken two years ago... imaginative. I ended the month in New York (more on that soon!) with a new outfit (more on that soon too!). This month has been really enlightening. I've learned a lot. It's been really interesting to evaluate the things I'm sewing vs. the things I'm accostomed to wearing. I have a lot of ideas (pants/blouses) for upcoming projects. Thanks so much to 'So Zo' for hosting this challenge! I'm so thrilled I made it through the month. It's been a lot of fun!
