May Sixth

Today was my boyfriend's graduation! Yipee! He finally got his Master of Science. Again it rained hardcore during the day, hence the beret to protect my freshly washed hair hehe. Prepare yourself for more awkward and out of focus photos, this time courtesy of the boyfriend.

I made this skirt as part of Casey's circle skirt sew-along. However, I had miscalculated the waist and ended up having to put in four pleats to take up the extra fabric. And after realising it was kind of out proportion wise on me, I cut 4 inches off it. Now I wear it all the time! Yipee!

May Fifth

Today I finished this velour skirt! It's my first attempt at stretch fabrics eeep. Not too bad I think. I have a velour tank dress that I wear at least once a week, so I thought a skirt in a similar style would be useful. I should have enough fabric left over to make a gathered skirt too.

Sorry for the incredibly awkward self timer photos, it's been raining hardcore for most of the day and everyone else is out :(

May First

I'm back! It's Me-Made-May and I've pledged to wear at least two handmade garments a week AND to refashion or finish one other item every week. I wore my Simplicity 1880 wrap dress with some tights, a skivvy and my new favourite op shops shoes (they were just $1!). I feel like the colour is a little bit dull on me, but I'd might as well wear it.

I did a few hours of lab work until Tamzen and I went to see Lawrence Arabia (the singer) at the Wine Cellar. It was absolutely amazing! Here is a sneaky video Tamzen took. He took mostly requests and this song is originally a Reduction Agents number.
