Now to Me Made June. Look I'm going to be honest, I'm losing momentum with this. While I would love to wear handmade every day, it's not always practical and I feel like I'm wearing the same outfits over and over again. I think this type of challenge would be far easier in Summer, as most of my sewing is for warmer weather. I'm also struggling to take photos every day. Sometimes the kids don't allow me the time to sneak upstairs for a pic and sometimes I don't do my hair or make up, and I'm really not cool with posting completely unstyled photos on my blog.
Anyway, I'll persevere. I'm almost at the end.
Sunday 26 June - BBQ at the park with the family
Saturday 25 June - Play date at the park with friends
Rachel bought the pattern. I chose a size based on my waist size, then quickly realised it was going to be too big everywhere else. So it sat and collected dust for a while.
UFO post, I finally forced myself to finish it. I had to re-shape the hips and reduce the size of the front panels. I also shifted the buttons as far as I could to get a better fit. I think I've also lost some weight in the last couple of months which didn't help my fitting concerns. As I had already given the pattern back to Rach, I guessed the number of buttons and made my own belt carriers without the instructions.
It's a wearable skirt, but I definitely made the wrong size and didn't pay enough attention to detail to make it an awesome skirt. Maybe next time.
