So, last day of Me-Made-May ’13 and I decided to make red jeans – my first ever attempt and I am pretty pleased with them. I bought the fabric in Kutwell Fabrics, Christchurch, NZ and used the StyleArc Sandra Jeans pattern. I bought size 8, but they are too big; I really need size 7. I shall be moving buttons and taking in seams on them next week.
I have teamed the jeans with the Vogue 8793 top made from remnants from Knitwit and trimmed with a red zip round the collar. It is so comfy and a very flattering shape that I know I will wear it often.
and one more:
I actually am going to miss this challenge. As mentioned before I pledged two items a week and yesterday I did the count: I managed an average of four items over the month with at least one original every day. I am really pleased with this. Next year will be even better!
This is a long weekend, but we sadly don’t get the Monday holiday. I decided to take today as a leave day, and last night we got packed to go to Margaret River camping. This is a very exciting development – we haven’t been camping for more than a year because of looking after Dad. I told him that he had to stay in hospital so we could come and he managed to look ill enough to be kept in – thanks Dad!
So, this is the sight that greeted me outside our garage last night – campter trailer and Troopie all good to go.
We will manage two nights on the farm, and I will be blogging my best camping attire!
Archie has been heavily into his fingerless gloves – this is the other pair I made him:
GCC steps yesterday: 20,882 (nvg)
Average: 23,830 (dropping, this is a tragedy!)
