A day late but MMMay Tuesday doesn’t have the same ring…
A week into MMMay 2017 and my biggest issue has been getting photos, with my chief photographer away at Uni, and her assistant busy at work, I’ve been asking work colleagues, WI members, tutors…anyone passing really!
Work days for me are sort of wear-what-you-like days as I wear theatre blues all day, my sister saw me in them for the first time a few weeks ago and commented that the trousers really didn’t do anything for me, and that was on a good day when I actually had a pair the right size!
This is me post shift in the changing room, so please excuse the hair!! I made my lavender duster jacket last year and I’ve worn it quite a lot, I could do with a lighter weight skirt to go with it really. My sewing shirt was from the Archer pattern and the dark purple cardigan has been worn a lot, though not so much with the long straight skirt I made to go with it. I love the skirt but for some reason it constantly rides up!
On Friday I travelled down to Denman College, so I needed ‘smart but casual’. This is me all ready to go, suitcase packed, with my teal cardigan and navy Fumeterre skirt.
On Saturday in class I wore my pansy waistcoat, I bought the fabric for this on Goldhawk Road and it always gets lots of comments, by chance I realised it went well with my teal Fumeterre skirt.
We have a three course meal every evening so I like to change for dinner, even though we had another hour of lectures afterwards (they work you hard at Denman!!) I wore my red rose shirt waister for the first time, I only made it last month. It was lovely to wear, it drapes beautifully and just feels really nice.
The weather is still pretty cool here, I’m hoping it’s going to warm up so I can wear some of my more summery clothes before the end of the month….otherwise this could get rather repetitive as I don’t have a huge wardrobe!!
