The Conclusion of Me Made May 2015

Day30
Day 30: Peonies from the Princeton Farmers Market and a lined, cotton eyelet NL 6843 skirt.

Days-26-29

  • Day 26:  The dress I wear when I need to look nice
  • Most days:  I used my B6072 backpack.


Day26-27-28

  • Love that NL 6922 dress--need to make more. 
  • Another rusty object
  • Bonus Day 26 at the gym, tank.


Day-29-30

  • Day 29: Love this top and skirt combo; never wore them together before but love!
  • Day 31:  I should wear that skirt more often.
Conclusions
  • It was a fun month with no me-made repeats. 
  • I made new friends through Twitter.  
  • @SewSimplicity rocks on twitter--they love to favorite and retweet, and I was even their #SimplicityTweetoftheDay a few times!  I love the enthusiasm and interaction with pattern companies.
  • I enjoyed finding new sculptures on campus for backdrops.
  • I rediscovered some outfits, found some new combinations and want to sew up some of the dresses again.

Be well!

    1. One of my coworkers gave me the Aerosoles catalog that had those shoes and said that they reminded her of me--so I bought them!

  3. Invigorating! Sounds like you need three weeks off to sew more!

  5. All of your purple throughout the month has been really nice to see! True purples I think are tricky to wear, but they look great on you! The eyelet skirt is lovely! I have an embroidered green fabric that's similar that I should do something with...

  6. I love your dresses and day 29 look. I tend to wear more separates and that one caught my eye. Good on you for not repeating throughout the month! And I want to make a backpack like yours!
