Topic 2: Hummingbird Skirt
Haha I've been missing my poor sewing room lately, and I've gotten an itch to sew that was getting unbearable. After closing up the shop at 4 on Canada Day, I came home to have some quiet me time (I'm an introvert - though granted a socially-inclined introvert. I've been needing some me-time to recharge after the last two crazy weeks). I'd planned to sit and work on a store sample and watch a movie, but the sewing room - she called! I wanted a quick project and, needing a skirt desperately in my wardrobe, I pulled out the pieces of a navy Hummingbird Skirt (by Cake Patterns) that I'd cut out literally years ago.
Don't ask me what the fabric is - some sort of suiting that feels a bit wooly, but definitely has a poly-content. It was part of a box of fabric sent to me from a friend, and I'm glad to get more use out of it. :)
Topic 3: Dream WardrobeDuring MMMay'16 (erm - things got a little insane and I never got photos taken of outfits the last week or so of May, though I did stick with Me-Makes. After hearing about the shop, I hope you now understand why), I won one of Zoe's giveaways! It was a fun little 'go to the Fabric Godmother website and suggest a pattern you think they need to have on their site (mine was Cake Pattern's Tiramisu, btw - I do love me some Cake!), and I was so lucky to win one month of Fabric Godmother's Dream Wardrobe! It was pretty cool, actually; Josie contacted me with a consultation document that I had to fill out, describing my colouring, my personal style, likes and dislikes, etc, and then she chose a pattern and fabric she thought would suit me. I received her package last week, and this is what she sent:
Itch to sew...RISING!
