Day 31: Simplicity 3833, take 2
Out with a bang! Wearing a dress for the last day of MMM.
Besides feeling a little narcissistic, how useful is it to see a photo of yourself everyday for a month? (I see I really need to stand up straight!) Almost everything I wore during the month is a shirt. That's funny considering tops are the smallest portion of my pattern collection (mostly dresses, fyi). That seems to be what I sew and wear handmade most often. I think it's because I find it so much easier to fit my top half, opposed to my bottom half. One of my sewing goals for this year is to make pants that fit. Time to get on that, I believe. I also discovered many me made things in my closet that are total failures. I've kept some things around that I really shouldn't. I've made quite a few skirts, but only have two that fit.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. The best part- it wasn't that hard. It's nice to know that I can wear my me made things on a regular basis. I was comfortable and no one gawked and stared. Here are the rest of the photos from the month. Thanks Zoe, for organizing another great me made month!
Day 21: Polka dot Burda tee, 2-2011
(the one where the stretch goes the wrong way ;)
Day 22: Linen Simplicity 2365
Day 23: This was the altered shirt dress from day 8.
I wasn't completely happy with it as a dress, so I chopped it of and made it a shirt.
Now, I'm not happy with it as a shirt. Hmmm....
Day 24: Simplicity 3833
I love this. I'm so glad MMM made me rediscover this dress.
Day 25: Built by Wendy top, Simplicity 2865
Day 26: My salvaged skirt.
It's made from a cheapo cotton broadcloth. Better suited for summer time, I think.
Day 27: Fancy Pants
Day 28: Simplicity 2365 tunic again
Day 29: Burda long sleeve tee, 2- 2011
Day 30: Amy Butler lotus cami
Brought this out from the back of the closet.
Now can I get woot woot for not having to take a picture tomorrow?
