Whew!!! I kinda ran out of ideas (and clothes) at the end there. I only put together 1 1/2 new outfits. I had never before paired my blue circle shirt with my red linen skirt because the shirt is so huge; putting the red belt with it saved that. And the 1/2 new outfit is me cutting the neckline lower out of a t-shirt and pairing it with my brown linen pants to go to dance class. It was so hot for a couple days there, but now it's back to raining.
Here's the last outfit list of the challenge!!
Day 25: brown linen pants again(Simplicity 2656) + a freshly cut-up t-shirt;
Day 26: Simplicity Lisette 2245 cropped trousers again;
Day 27: Simplicity Built by Wendy 3964 shirt again;
Day 28: Spring Ruffle Top again;
Day 29: top made with Simplicity 2614 again;
Day 30: red linen skirt again (Simplicity 2367), but paired with a new top:
LAST DAY: skirt is again Simplicity 2655, paired with a brand-new fair trade RTW top in a nautical theme, for Zoe!!
With my energy going to styling (ha!) this month, I didn't get much making done. I did progress on two knitting projects and one is nearly done.
And then on June 1st I got out my sewing machine and finished up a shirt in a new pattern! I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of it and I've already cut out fabric to make a second version. I'm waiting 'til my better half gets back to take proper pictures though. My motivation for self-portraiture is pretty low right now. ;)
I loved the process, as always, and it helped me find new (and perhaps, better) ways to wear my wardrobe. And of course, I re-identified the gaps I need to fill. More importantly, the sense of community and understanding in the sewing blog world and in the flickr group (and the support from my non-sewing friends!) is always such a boost and continually inspires me.
Thank you everyone and especially Zoe, for organizing this little hand-made love-fest!
