Lots of decisions made, projects finished and clothes worn.
May 13: Winter graduation dress (another version)
May 14: Blue plaid pants, grey sweater with leather
May 15: Convocation/Wedding dress, white knit shrug
May 16: Winter graduation dress (yet another one), circle scarf – Problems with pockets, combining with clothes and itchiness
May 17: Grey pleat pants, eyelet sweater
May 18: Red plaid skirt, new dotted shirt (replaced the old version), Frances sweater
May 19: Cat shirt, brown knit sweater
May 20: Sport skort with pockets (because I went skating all day)
May 21: Mondriaan dress
So I’ve made a new dotted shirt to replace the old version. This one has a hem that comes up at the sides, like a button down shirt. The other resolution to chop of the stains on the green kiwi pants has also worked. I now have green knee length culottes. One of the other things I’d also resolved to do was finally replace the buttons of a bought jacket. Some of the buttons were really scuffed and it annoyed me, it took me 2-3 hours on wedding day, but it has happened!
I’m also going to donate the high low winter graduation dress. While it has short sleeves, it doesn’t really combine with any tops, it’s really itchy and the pockets are not very accessible. I also don’t feel very nice in it, so it will be relegated to the donation pile. The same goes for the Gaia sweater which I never ever wear. I just feel so terrible in it. I’ve also donated the colourful Maimu scarf to my mother. She might get more wear out of it as I never use it.
Byebye to these items!
Projects that are still on the go are to fix the sleeves of the riding jacket that shrunk hideously in the wash and are now, not even kidding, 6.5 cm too short. I’m also going to try to finish up a full length circle pant-skirt-thing that has actually been hemmed today (!) but now needs to have the straps and top edge finished. I also have 2.5 more knitting projects (1.5 sock and a poncho-type-item) that I need to get done at some point.
A lot to do and a bit more than a week to go, but so far, so good!
