This week was a little rocky as I didn’t document a couple of days. It actually felt a bit nice, in a lazy sort of way. It made me wonder if I would get as much out of a me-made month if I only documented part of the week? I know some of you do partial weeks, have you enjoyed having on-days and off-days? Is the documenting the same thing as the challenge for you, or are they separate? Anyway, here’s what I did document!
DAY 20: Black and white dress (Summer 2011)
Reflections: I feel great every time I wear this dress, although it’s worth noting I’m becoming more prudish than I’d thought. I felt somewhat exposed at work in this knee-length dress!
DAY 21: Wore a new project but it was too rainy to document in the morning and I had to go straight to class after work.
DAY 22: Sick day, wore the shirt from Day 3 of MMM ’11 and these shorts ( July 2012) but didn’t document.
Reflections: I was comfortable, which was my only requirement.
AM Activity: I slept until noon and then rested all day.
DAY 23: Tie-dye tank (June 2012)
Reflections: I think this tank looks better without a cardigan, as it’s made of a stiffer quilting cotton and doesn’t have much drape. It’s the same fabric as this dress.
AM Activity: Photo-documenting this quilt!
DAY 24: Blue bustier (August 2012) with my black cardigan (May 2013)
Reflections: I think this is my ideal kind of outfit, casual with a few little interesting design details.
AM Activity: Drank coffee with my husband, who’s started roasting his own beans this year.
DAY 25: Refashioned tee (August 2012)
Reflections: Nathan and I helped a friend move, so I wanted to able to move. This t-shirt, which is refashioned from two other lackluster t-shirts, fit the bill. I sewed a band around the bottom, which is my favorite way to finish knit hems.
DAY 26: Galaxy tee refashion (June 2012)
Reflections: I love this top. I might need to cut my hair, though.
This next week is going to be a bit crazy; my school program is reaching an end (hooray!) but that also means my final project is due soon. Nathan and I are also moving in early June. I’m considering sending my machine to the shop; it needs a tune-up and I need to focus!
