Things were a bit all over the place this time-weather, me, my clothes. I wore a custom made dress once and two unblogged pieces, had to go from sun dresses to long sleeve maxis with shawls and the daily bathroom selfie was about 50/50. The selfie failure was due in part to the fact that after a day of very productive yard and housework on Saturday, rain on Sunday somehow made us think “What we really need is a road trip to Canada.” Half a day later we discovered that the weather in Ontario was lovely.
What I wore:
5/21 Brown Mendocino (photo above) This is from five years ago and needs to have some of the shirring mended. I never blogged this, but I blogged the previous one complete with a link to the free Heather Ross pattern. This one I added not only straps, but self drafted petal sleeves.
5/23 RTW Linen Dress and Iris Shawl
5/24 Myrtle Muslin
5/25 Dottie Turner
5/26 Brown Mendocino
5/27 Custom Maxi
5/28 Cherry Blossoms
5/30 Wine Rosari
5/31 Silver and Black Satin Maxi Skirt -This is another unblogged wardrobe orphan. This was made before my Mendocino dresses and doesn’t even have seam finishes beyond a second row of straight stitch along each. I remember the godets taking forever. This Big 4 pattern is MIA, which is a pity. Can anyone suggest a similar pattern?
