Well, thank goodness healthy eating helped me lose 10lbs since Christmas, because otherwise I wouldn’t have fit into my million pairs of Style Arc Elle pants, and this week would have been a bust! (Now if I could just stop eating ice cream and lose the other 10 pounds…)
– 4 pairs of Style Arc Elle pants (a really great simple pull-on pant)
– 2 pairs of Cake Espresso leggings (Cake’s best pattern ever, I think. It only takes 10min work to get custom drafted leggings!)
-1 Cake Hummingbird top (wondering about turning these into dresses no that peplums aren’t quite so trendy)
-1 Cake Tiramisu maxi (love this pattern, even though I don’t wear them much anymore)
-1 Muse Jenna cardi (Less in love with the fit of this, even after I took it on that morning)
– 1 Jennifer Lauren Bronte dress (great pattern, but cheap fabric makes the skirt really clingy!)
I think I did ok representing all my favourite Aussie/Kiwi patterns and designers, but I’m not in love with some of my outfits this week. It’s strange to realise that I wear the same wintery clothes when the temperature is 10c as I do when it’s -30c… I just don’t wear a full-length down coat on top! It’s nice and hot now though, so i’m looking forward to bare legs and bare arms for the last week of MMM.
I sewed 2 things using Cake patterns this week, but they are gifts so I can’t show them here. (Nope, Anne, it’s not the pattern you’ll guess!)
For the last week I’m on to American designers, which I thought were underrepresented in my closet… but now that I’ve hung them all together it turns out I have MORE than enough! I admit I’m glad that MMM is over before our school track and field day next week though! It’s hard enough to dress appropriately for gym class and yard duty several times a week.
Here’s to one more week of MMM! (And 5 more weeks to finish your sewing dares!)
