Woooo! Happy Monday, everybody! Because I’m unemployed right now, I spent today hanging around the house with the intention of sewing up a storm, but… a few sort of unpleasant tasks that have been hanging over my head called out to me, and I opted to forgo sewing in favor of some deep cleaning. I just finished cleaning out my kitchen cabinets, throwing away food that was long past its expiration date (I have to admit I found some stuff waaaaaaay in the back that expired in 2006… eek!!), cleaning out my medicine cabinet and bathroom cabinet, and going through all the tupperware/storage containers that we’ve accumulated. I filled three garbage bags with junk! Phew! It feels good to have that over and done with. Yuck.
I guess it’s somehow fitting that I picked out my oldest (well, first) me-made item today. I felt like I did a really shoddy job on this dress, so I haven’t really worn it since I made it.
dress: me-made Butterick B5211
necklace: Rare Bird
I have to say, I like this more than I thought I would. It’s a little boxy, but that kind of grew on me throughout the day. But I’d forgotten that I screwed something up with the button closure in the back so it constantly comes undone. Gotta sort out a fix for that. Also, this mother is SHORT! I don’t know what I was thinking! Must’ve had a flashback to my So Cal college girl days without realizing it! I guess I could wear it with tights, but I’m not super fond of them, so I’ll probably just save this for hot days around the house when only Doug is around to be scandalized by my pasty-white thighs!
