What do I think?
– No more cocos! Find another pattern, maybe the sewhouse seven toaster pattern.
-If the weather had been better I’d have worn more dresses. I wore dresses on only ten days.
-I’ve been wearing jeans and trousers more, but feel no inclination to make them!
-I really like the prima jacket pattern I’ve made in ponte three times, smart enough to wear to work, but comfortable enough to wear with jeans at home.
-I need to cull my wardrobe more often, and make sure I wear flattering items, rather than hanging onto things because I’ve made them. I like plain or geometric fabrics and plain necklines, but it would be good to see something more adventurous.
May was unproductive for sewing, I made some fails, and toiles that didn’t work out, but that’s the way it happens sometimes.
I definitely want to do Me made May 2018, so I can see what’s changed, since this year, and whether I’m still wearing makes from 2014!
