Oops, my weekly roundup is a few days late! I’m sure you were all anxiously waiting 🙂 I’ve managed to maintain my streak of at least one handmade garment each day with only one (the first!) repeat garment. Not bad! And now for the week’s outfits:
May 18, Sunday: 30-mile bike ride event in Watsonville, CA. I spent most of the day in bib knickers and a cycling jersey, so this is my post-ride outfit (pajamas!)
Cardigan: Julia cardigan (handmade, unblogged)
Cami: Ann Taylor Loft
PJ bottoms: handmade, unblogged
May 20, Tuesday: Substituted for the lab again and final exam for Patternmaking class
Dress: Cambie dress (handmade, here)
May 21, Wednesday: Proctored an exam at the college. This is one of my favorite outfits!
Knit shirt: Target
Skirt: Vintage 70s pattern, handmade here
May 22, Thursday: Sewing, errands and lunch date with my big boy.
Top: “Heidi top”, handmade here
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft
I’m realizing that I need more “regular” clothes–basic pants, unfancy skirts and dresses, and simple blouses (not t’s). Luckily, Katie over at the Creative Counselor is hosting a Back-2-Basics Sewalong the first week of June. I might have to shift my “basics week” until the following since I have several sewing projects (that are not basics!) due around then, but it’s certainly on my radar!
