MMM Week 1
|Day 2 - self made Burdastyle kimono top in linen stripe and pustard-to-mustard self made cowl. Trousers not sure - maybe some blue cords?|
|Day 3 - Self made singlet tank rubbed from a RTW tank (test run for same pattern as my Liberty tank), pink top from Jacqui E, blue cords again. Clearly today was a bit of a sneaking through on a technicality.|
|Day 4 - Self made kimono top same as day 3, self made scarf. Apologies for early morning Saturday face.|
|Day 5 - Oooh exciting - something new! My first attempt at Sewaholic's Renfrew - I will do a full post on a batch of Renfrews at a later date but am very pleased (also self made scarf and Jag jeans).|
|Day 6 - Self made Colette Laurel blouse, Jag Jeans.|
Day 7 - A day off! Self made self drafted purple tube skirt - not blogged yet. Why not now? I made this last year pre blog. It was pretty much the first thing I made out of knit fabric and I was very pleased with it. I made a basic pattern using waist, hip and length measurements, then I lopped the top off the pattern and drafted a waistband a little smaller than the size of the skirt, and attached it - I used this tutorial from Christine Johnson patterns. Its a very flattering style and I love this fabric - I was stalking it at my local fabric shop for several months and as the bolt started to get smaller I finally grabbed it.
It reminds me a bit of the fabrics used by Metalicus. I think its a bit of a nasty synthetic blend..... (also in the scene secondhand wool Cue jumper bought off Ebay)
I'm going to give myself a gold star - my MMM pledge was one MM piece on 50% of work days, and every day I have off - thus far I have worn something every work day (6 in a row!) plus my day off today and only doubled up once. I am warning though, this next week will be a little bit Ground Hog Day.... I need time for more Renfrews and more pants!
