It’s like me circa my freshman year of high school (including the unmatched blacks). I used to loooove long skirts, but I really couldn’t deal with how annoying this was to walk in. Perhaps because now even my slow days now involve 3-4 miles of fast walking? Anyway while I like how this looks I think long skirts and I just need some time apart.
The army shirt is fun. I keep adding bits to it. Here’s a detail shot.
Jeans and a t-shirt. This shirt is too short in the back, which is a known issue (the t-shirt I was using for fabric wasn’t big enough). Need to make more of these.
The Atomic Housedress. Still a lot of fun. It needs a few tweaks (shoulder adjustment, some tacking at the hem) but since the wrap cut is very forgiving size-wise it’s quite wearable even though I made it when I was quite a bit bigger than I am now (2 months post-partum vs. 7). And the cardigan is still one of my favorites.
This is the last of my four Alabama Chanin style dresses, and my burda shirt. I wore this outfit tromping around Maker Faire with a baby on my back. I enjoyed the colors a lot. The baby is getting heavy though.
Weird picture because backlit. There’s totally a sleeping kid on my back in that photo. Me-made leggings and refashioned shirt with applique on the sleeve. The tank top is new. I made two, one with green edging and one with purple. They’re nothing special, but they’re nice and long and should be good for layering under things. I’m getting better at knit bindings! The skirt I bought a long time ago, but it makes me very happy.
This outfit screams “mom”. I think it’s the cardigan and sneakers? Or perhaps the avocado the baby somehow smeared on my legs.
This is the first day without a new-to-me-made-may item. I put it off as long as possible! But unless I want to wear things that don’t work with my lifestyle (e.g. maternity clothes, long skirts and tops I really can’t nurse in) that’s pretty much it until I finish a new project.
