I have some more varied photos to share this week. None are terribly good, but I have been exploring new locations around the house. I'm terribly jealous of those bloggers who are able to venture out to cool locations for their photos. It's just not something I can do right now. One day...
Tuesday 8 May - Home with sick kids - still!
Tova dress in Japanese cotton. I adore this tunic. It is probably the most worn of all my Tovas.
Wednesday 9 May - Spotlight fun with one slightly sick kid.
Renfrew in interlock.
Thursday 10 May - Hanging with the kids and dinner with the girls
Wrap and Go skirt made with Tessuti denim. Definitely the most worn skirt this past summer.
Vintage Simplicity 3461 & 4841. I love this dress and wish I could wear it more.
Friday 11 May - kids day (again!)
Sewaholic Crescent skirt
Saturday 12 May - Grocery day *yawn*
Renfrew in merino knit and a new, me-made chevron scarf.
This scarf was made with a yard of voile purchased from Spoonflower last year during a free shipping promotion. When it arrived, boy was I disappointed! The voile from Spoonflower is more like gauze. Something I would wrap a baby in, not what I would use to make a garment. I was waiting for a baby to be born, so that I could give someone a cool, orange chevron print wrap, but I'm glad a saved it. I have simply folded in half and sewn right sides together, then turned it back out. Easy peasy.
Sunday 13 May - Mothers day.
this blogger. This time a simple, self drafted, knit skirt made with fabric from Tessuti. I lined the skirt in some spun polyester purchased from the Op Shop for a small $1 and the wide black elastic was also from purchased the Op Shop for just 50c. I wore the tee un tucked after this photo and it looks much more relaxed.
Total skirt cost:
Argo #4000 Jersey from Tessuti. 60cms = $22.80
Lining = $1
Elastic = 50c
Total = $24.30
Monday 14 May - Sewing day!
loose fit knit top with cuff sleeves - a free pattern from Dixie DIY. This took just one short nap to cut and construct. I love a fast make. I'm quite happy with this, but think I might size down a little next time and probably make the tee a little longer. I sewed a scant 1/4 inch hem and I think it needs just over an inch more. Better yet, it was made with a remnant of fabric from one of my first Renfrews, so I believe this project has a $0 cost according to my accounting system :)
Me made Angel scarf
Tuesday 15 May - Work day.
me-made scarf. Even though I am wearing me-made jarmies, I think I might have to wear two items tomorrow.
I can't believe we are already half way through Me Made May. I just love seeing what other are sewers wearing. Are you following MMM on Flickr?
