Back to reality

I’m briefly back to reality after a lot of studying, school has been hectic, mildly speaking. We currently have easter break for 5 days. I sneaked in some sewing yesterday and managed to make 2 tolies of Deer and Doe’s Chataigne Shorts. I had to make some major changes due to the fact that they don’t come in my size but I think the fit is pretty good now so there will be a new pair (or more) of trousers soon.

You might remember my Bow-Tied Blouse in red that I made for the Mad Men challenge and that was supposed to be a white one well hear it is, in organic cotton interlock from tygpyssling, When the fabric arrived on a really bad and stressful day and she had put in some extras for me and the fabric was fabulous, it was the best thing that could have happened.

We were just about to walk out the door to take some nice pictures when Peter asked if the camera worked, as it turned out both our DSLR cameras where out of battery, so this is a sneak preview phone photo, just so you know that I’m still here. 

If you didn’t know The Spring Top Sew-along hosted by Made by Rea is currently going on, if you want some blouse inspiration look at the #springtopsewalong tag on Instagram or the flickr group. She has some blousey giveaways on her blog too if you are interested in that.

May is coming closer and with it Me Made May, this will be my first time participation and I’m really excited about it. My goal is to wear me made garments with exception for my rain coat, socks and undies, hopefully I have made 2 more bras by then so I can wear my own very comfortable bras exclusively. Me Made May is not necessarily about only wearing hand made it is about challenging yourself to actually use what you make, so if you are feeling hesitant about joining you can set your personal goal to wear something you made 2/week or 1 item every day, it’s up to you. You can find all information about Me Made May here. 

I am currently planing to make a lot of things ,drawing sketches on the buss on my way home form school or in the lunch break. The little top you see in the picture at the start of this post is one that I have fallen in love with in the idea stage and hopefully it will become an equally beautiful top in reality soon.

What are you thinking and planning?

I have a newsletter, it will come occasionally and with previews of new designs and coupon codes. It will most likely not come more then 2 times a month and you can unsubscribe at any time.

    Looking forward to your Chataigne shorts! Good luck with Me Made May. I’d love to participate but I have to wear a uniform 5 out of 7 days a week so it would be a bit lacklustre,
