We’re already halfway through May! So crazy. Thought I’d do a couple of compilation posts to show what I’ve been wearing, since not everyone is on Instagram.
Here’s May 1st through 15th:
31 days of wearing at least one thing I’ve made every day! #mmmay17 It’s cold and rainy in Wisco today, so indoor pic it is. Dress is Cake Patterns Tiramisu, which is #unblogged and made in a day when I was about a size smaller, but yeah knits! Leggings are @patternsforpirates Peg Legs (blog post). The wee one is my best me made yet: we call him Cheeks. Fabrics are from @fabricdotcom
Skirt is @mccallpatterncompany #mccalls6966 in @girlcharlee rayon blend jersey (unblogged). Cropped cardigan is a @simplicity_creative_group #burda envelope pattern I can’t recall the number of (unblogged, but it’s Burda 7107 and I made it out of ponte for some damn reason; don’t do it. Must be lighter and stretchier!).
@jalie_patterns #jalie3243 pull on pants in flannel (unblogged). My favorite pattern for PJ pants. I put almost all of my winter sleepwear away when it got to 70 a few weeks ago, but it’s been cool ever since.
I had intended to wear something else but it was still damp after washing yesterday. Today I’m wearing @patternsforpirates #peglegs (unblogged) and hiking up my #lularoe from @lularoeshandafrydenlund Julia so you can see the ombre of the @girlcharlee fabric. Speaking of which, I happened to write a blog post this weekend on patterns to use to DIY your own LuLaRoe look-alikes. (blog post here).
It’s crappy and raining this afternoon. It was supposed to be 70 today, so I shaved my legs. Wearing @simplicity_creative_group #simplicity1877 dress (blogged here) with @jalie_patterns Drop Pocket Cardigan #jalie3248 (blogged here) I got both the rayon challis (in 2013) and wool jersey (in 2016) from @fabricmart
GORGEOUS out this afternoon. Thatagal, Wisco! Wearing a #burda6911 envelope pattern (unblogged) @simplicity_creative_group today (yeah, it’s the same cardi as yesterday; IDGAF!) Also, spot my favorite pink haired neighbor walking by in the background. She wears the cutest clothes! Maybe I’ll actually say hi someday…
I didn’t realize how ginormous my boobs looked when I put this @kitschycoo Lady Skater on this morning. I made it for our honeymoon (3 years ago) and was a bit smaller then. Has a invisible zippered pocket in the waist seam; big enough for a passport! Fabric from Fabricline.com
