Paula asked me what I wore "at night" during SSS. I am not sure if she meant in bed or "after school", sorry "work". Either way, it a non-self-stitched wilderness.
Here lies the tumbleweed...
Days Four and Five:
Challenges: Extreme Housework, trip to optician with my daughter, dog-walking and ... sigh, at last!...knitting
Attitute / Inspiration: Well I would love to say Super Kawaii Mama. But I can't live up to her standards.
Blue Bella Trousers: blogged here
Lola apron: blogged here
Handknitted socks: Conwy pattern by Nancy Bush, ravelled here
Knickers (all home-made in the wash, had to wear my "pattern"!)
Long-sleeved top (this one is at least organic cotton, by Seasalt)
Thermal vest (yes, really)
Casual jacket to wear in town
Make more knickers!
Make long-sleeved tops - you know this already
Cardigans might reduce need for thermal vest
I have a pattern to make an autumnal jacket
Well at least I wore some home-made trousers! These are quite a jean-like blue so passed the "out with teen girl and might be seen by a schoolmate" test. I have some organic denim in the stash but haven't got round to making deliberately casual weekend trousers.
I failed even more badly today (Sunday) when I ended up in my jeans to help gut out my son's room - he is off to Uni next week and I was determined he wasn't leaving me with his childhood mess to sort out! Just as well I made that apron...
