Day 18 Monday
Day 19 Tuesday
I wore my white cotton burnout paisley McCall’s 5436 top from forever ago over a turquoise tank top with a red and orange necklace and jeans. I love the turquoise with the red and orange combination.
Day 20 Wednesday
I wore my leopard challis Simplicity 1280 with a lilac studded belt and jeans. This was the first top I made using challis and I don’t know why I waited so long. I want to make all the things forever with challis!
Day 21 Thursday
I wore my Simplicity 1317 top with jeans. I really like this pattern as evidenced by the 3 versions I have made so far. More will follow for fall.
Day 22 Friday
I wore two me made pieces today. The striped vest is Butterick 5759 that I made in March. The other is the New Look 6875 top I made way back in 2013. I have made 2 versions of this top and it is a great basic that I really need to make more of. That way I do not keep buying RTW versions from Target. I did make some fabric purchases on Friday as well. One of which was for another version of this vest. Only it has sleeves, so I guess it is a cardigan now. The other was for a dress. More on these later this week.
Ha! I didn’t realize it until posting these pictures but the t-shirt I am wearing here is the other version of New Look 6875 I made from 2012. The sweater I am wearing is McCall’s 6844 made last year from Girl Charlee hacci sweater knit. I have to say I am not pleased with how this sweater has worn. The pattern is perfect and I will make several more. The fabric, however, is a whole other story. I love Girl Charlee, but this fabric piled as soon as I washed it and it only continues to get worse. The blue piles onto the white and the white onto the blue. Maybe I just need to get one of those sweater shaver things, but as it is I am hesitant to buy the hacci sweater knit from GC. Anyone else have this problem or should I give this fabric another shot?
Day 24 Sunday
No picture for Sunday. I kinda cheated and just wore my pajama pants. I did make them so I guess maybe I didn’t cheat.
