I had my first whole day off in more than 3 weeks! And I was still sick. So it wasn't quite as fun as I was hoping. I was feeling too lazy to do my hair so luckily it was raining most of the day. I could use my umbrella to shield my very messy hair from the public.
I don't have a full length mirror so I keep a stool in my bathroom to stand on....
- Static pants - Burda mag Sep 2010
- Lace and polka dots top - own pattern
- Grey and purple crop top - own pattern
- Aubergine cardigan - own pattern
The only pair of me-made pants I own. Still haven't hemmed them. I wear them so rarely that it kinda doesn't seem worth it. I made the grey and purple top last year. I wear it a lot - at home. On Monday I finally finished the neckline on it so now I can wear it outside too.
Still sick. I stayed in for most of the day. Hanging out in my pink and green pyjamas and my grey and purple crop top again.
Doesn't it look better backwards? I got given the fabric for free at a fabric shop in Istanbul! I would have made it longer but i used basically every scrap I had and pieced it to squeeze it out.
I was trying to tidy up my flat but ended up pattern drafting and sewing instead. Making hot pants! And I have ideas for skirts!
When I went out much later I wore:
- My nyár van dress - Burda 8693
- Raglan wrap cardigan - my own pattern
- Black sparkly leggings - own pattern
- Blue striped jacket - Burda 7757
Started the day with a swim. First exercise in almost a week!
I spent hours shoe shopping unsuccessfully. Why is it so hard to find shoes that fit?? It was nice and sunny and warm though. It was so good to walk along the busy big ring road, to feel like I was actually in the city after having spent too much time cooped up at home the past few days...
Then in the afternoon I went to work. There is a new security guard. Man can he talk! At the end of my shift I went to update him on the late arriving guests. 25 minutes later I was still there!
