Sunday, I kinda cheated a little at MMM, I did not make that dress. I bought it second hand. But I did make a small alteration, so I count it as a refashion, sorta... Have you noticed recently that most dresses for sale in high street store, especially New Look, where I tend to shop, they have included an elasticated waistband in all their dresses? Ugh! I hate them, I've returned a couple of dresses in the past because of that feature. Anyway, so I bought this dress, originally from New Look and sporting the offensive elastic waist, for £5 second hand, took my scissors to it and removed the elastic, restitching it together to form a perfectly lovely a-line dress. I needed something lovely to wear as we spend Sunday meeting my Brother-in-laws future in-laws.
Monday was another refashion, I wore my cream, lace top with a black skirt, fun tights and my favourite belt to a job interview. Hoping to get some summer work in the university library, finger crossed.
Tuesday was my birthday! And I wore my favourite, and only truly successful (so far) dress. It's a tiny polka dot fabric, slightly blurred by the camera. I love this dress, just love it. I was the first thing I made on my own and it was so easy to put together, I'm so very proud of it.
From Wednesday I'm back to studying and sewing at home so I just wanted to wear something comfortable. This blue 'vintage' t-shirt was ideal, paired with jeans and a cardigan.
Thursday and Friday were/are study/sew days too, but I did go for a wander around town on Thursday to break up the day. Dave worries that I don't go out enough when I'm working from home, he thinks I go stir crazy. Perhaps he's right, as it does feel so good to leave the house and breath fresh air! As I was going out, I decided real clothes were in order, so I wore my grey circle skirt, with a cute blouse and oversized jumper.
Today, however, I don't feel like going anywhere! I'm not dressed for it or anything. In my leggings and home made t-shirt, I'm super comfortable and happy, relaxing and reading at my desk.
