Today I wore my Simplicity 2145 dress to the office. I paired it with maryjane shoes a black jacket, that I had taken off.
After work I went to one of my favorite fabric stores in Stockholm, Söders Tyger. They had a special event and I was naugthy and got 3 meters of deep red cotton gabardine for a skirt and a jacket for summer. I also invested in a transparant presser foot, which I hope will be helpfull for seeing what I’m doing when I’m sewing.
Until next time
Today I’m working from home, listening to some interviews I’ve conducted for a research project. A bit boring work so I amused myself by posing in the hallway on my way to lunch.
I’m wearing another BurdaStyle Magazine 10/2012 #119 wrap top, this time in mauve purple. this was my first less successful attempt with is pattern. I’m comvining it with my Levi’s jeans, ballet flats and a scarf from ETRO.
When I got home I had gotten a package from the McCall Pattern Company (again). It had three patterns from the new summer collections, one from Vogue Patterns and two from McCall’s.
The new Vogue Pattern I chose is the V1351. A cute knit dress with simple lines, designed my DKNY. I love the Vogue patterns from DKNY in general and this one looks so easy both to sew and to wear. It is lined and I have a chocking pink viscos knit to make it in.
From McCall’s I chose M6756, a pattern for shorts in varying lengths. I like these because they do not have the front pleat that many short patterns have and it ends on the waistline rather than on the hips.
The other McCall’s pattern is M6752, yet another pattern for a knit dress or top. But I like these because they are quite flowy in the design, but it still chinches in at the waist. I feel a bit repetitive when writing about the need to define the waist, but I hate feeling boxy and shapeless in my clothes.
Thought I’d start this habit of wearing something me made on mondays and reporting on it here. Today I’m wearing a my blue BurdaStyle Magazine 10/2012 #119 wrap top paired wirh a RTW black pencil skirt (from Sand) and a black skirt. I’m spending the day at a conference at Södertuna castle. A beautiful environment to be in.
