Amanda: We’re halfway through the month and I have yet to bust out my recent summery makes – linen tanks and snow just don’t mix! Seriously though, the weather in CO this month has thrown me for a bit of a loop and I haven’t worn any of my lightweight pants, skirts or recent tees and tanks except under cardigans. That’s okay – I’m ready for summer, if/when it arrives. I’ve been mostly sticking to my sewing plan for the month but I’ve had a few MeMadeMay casualties (i.e. things that jumped the queue and required new fabric!): two pairs of shorts and a blouse-to-dress hack that’s in the works. I don’t know whether it’s the weather or…okay, it’s probably the weather…but I’ve been thinking a lot about my fall sewing list, too: it’s getting longer and longer!
Jill: It’s now cold and snowy here in Colorado. Just as I was finishing up a summery outfit. It’s a beige gingham 1/2 circle skirt and a self drafted top. I cannot wait to wear it! Half way through MeMadMay taking photos has not gotten any easier. It’s weird looking at myself. As for the rest of #memademay2017 I would like to get out one more skirt with fabric I found at an antique store. Not sure if I’ll make it but I hope to try. Plus, I still have on my list a maxi dress and half a dozen other projects. At the very least I hope to finish up a few tops and blouses so I can wear them during summer.
Can’t wait for next week, the weather should be a tad warmer!
