We are half way there! On one had it has been so exciting and so much fun to see all the amazing makes that everyone else is wearing and I can not wait to see more! But on the other hand I am getting sad that we are already more than half-way in… I loved seeing the abundance of makes on instagram and discovering all the amazing and inspirational makers.
Here is the round up of my Week 2
Day 9: I finally managed to take a picture! This is after work so you get me tired with whatever is left of my make up. But I'm happily grinning because my photographer was making me laugh 💕coat is from #lekalapatterns, skirt is from #burdastyle and sweater is self drafted rip off jcrew sweater 😊 #mmmay16 #memademay
Day 10: I love morning light in my kitchen! I never realized how bright it is and perfect for photos 🙂 I'm wearing all me-made today again. The pants are a hybrid between #lakesidepajamas and #mojipants, the sweater is self drafted rip off jcrew sweater, and the coat is #coatigansilvia #mmmay16 #memademay #seamworkmag #grainlinestudio
Day 11: we were running late this morning because someone stayed up sewing too late last night. Ooops! So just one picture today. I'm wearing #eucalypttank, gosh I absolutely love that pattern, and #thurlowtrousers modified into straight leg pants. My contacts also gave up on me so I'm geeking out in my glasses 🤓 #mmmay16 #memademay
Day 12: it's so gloomy out today and it was snowing! Snowing in May! 😧 so my planned dress got put to the side and I pulled out the slouchiest, comfiest dress I could think of. My #hemlocktee hacked into a dress. Wearing it with my #lekalapatterns coat and a scarf. Now if only I could go back to bed! 💤 #grainlinestudio #isew #sewingblogger #mmmay16 #memademay #mmm16
Day 14: after I finally showered and cleaned myself up, we are off for a bbq at friends house. I decided to take my freshly finished wearable muslin of #hampshiretrousers for a test drive. I paired it with #larktee and a #boylstonbra which is not visible 😉 #grainlinestudio #califayecollection #mmmay16 #memademay #isew
Thoughts so far:
- I apparently have trouble counting anything over 10, so as a result I had 2 “Day 14” in May. Both have been great day 14’s
- After donning my Mesa/Lakeside pants on for Day 10 (Tuesday) I realized two things. One, I need more of these pants in my life. Two, I need more casual yet work appropriate pants in my life. That’s what lead me to Hampshire Trousers addiction. I will write more on it this week and I promise a detailed post on them! I’ve already made 2 pairs…
- The light in my kitchen is Ah-mazing! I don’t even need to adjust the lighting in those photos. It’s too bad that I’ve discovered this gem of a photo spot a month and a half before we have to move out
- Selfies are so hard to take, but sometimes they are awesome. It’s hard for me to capture the whole outfit in a selfie and the “feel” for it. But they are a life saver for lazy Sundays when I refuse to put my make up on and my hair may or may not have been brushed.
