A pretty wholesome challenge I thought and I wanted to do it last year but it got away from me. So to begin...
Friday 1st May
Worn to - work
With - navy trousers and a purple cardigan listed below (not jeans and a pink belt!)
From - Sew Simple Peter Pan collar blouse
Thoughts - too shapeless but I love the fabric so I still wear it
Make again? - No, I sold the pattern on ebay last week!
|Taken by my friend Ian Woodward from the Hooded Lens|
Worn to - Beltane bellydance bash in Wrexham on Saturday night
With - bought lace top and yoga pants underneath
From - my imagination, the skirt is two spliced and sewn together, the headdress is a collection of stuff glued to a headband and I crocheted the top and the back of the hip scarf which you can't see.
Thoughts - My crochet top is getting a bit stretched now so I would like to make a decorated bra next.
Make again? - it is a constantly evolving costume
Sunday and Monday 3th & 4th May
Worn to - Lunch with my brother and his family at home then on Monday to Hawkstone Follies for a long walk.
With - My Crocheted jumper and handmade jeans
From - Jumper from Cafe classic Book and Burda Jeans
Thoughts - My typical Weekend fayre and a regular combo.
Make Again - If I made the jumper again I would make it smaller but I will definitely make the jeans again.
Tuesday 5th May
Worn - to work
With - thick tights and boots, it's gone wet and cold again here.
From - the cowl is my own crocheted design, dress from pattern Newlook 6209, cardigan from ravelry here.
Thoughts - I wear this cardigan a lot but I am trying to like the heavy crepe grey dress so am giving it another chance today.
Make again? - cowl yes, cardigan yes, dress maybe but not in a fabric that won't press. (look at that hem!)
So my first few days are going OK. It really does make you think about what you wear in this challenge.
See you with another MMM15 post next week. Jo xxxxx
