|Day 29: Business meeting, altered jacket and new shirt|
Day 27 was the summer dress again, and day 28: I made a new shirt! I actually have been working on it for a few weeks. I'll tell you more in another post about it as well, but lets just say that the tears mentioned last time involved this shirt. And about two hours unpicking serger seams. But I love it! Which is why I wore it again the next day, but then with the altered jacket. Day 30 and 31 are not shown here, but I wore the floral shirt and the 70's dress. The dress counts because I shortened it and hand stitched the hem. Yes that counts.
I have to say, MMM '12 was quite a challenge! I mean, wearing a loop scarf hardly qualifies for a me made garment, but I was a little bit desperate every now and then. I think I'd last two weeks without repeating any garments. It did what was promised: it showed me the gaps in my wardrobe, and made me more creative in choosing my outfit every morning. You see, usually I wouldn't hesitate to wear the same thing two days in a row.
So, thank you Zoe for hosting this again! Now, where are my RTW pyjamas?
