It was 24 and sunny here yesterday which means I finally got to wear the new top I sewed for myself back in the middle of August when the weatherman teased us with a few Spring-y days.
I also sewed these pants because I need some new comfy clothes and I'm making an effort to not wear trackies every day. I always get enthusiastic like that at the beginning of the season.
I also needed a new cardigan so I prayed to the Op-Shop gods (because I'm not allowed to buy anything new, you know) and they delivered three (3!) of them my way.
exhibit A (which was not a cardigan but is now.
I snipped it up the middle, added some lacey trim and sewed on a button.
I'm wearing it in that other photo above with the black pants)
exhibit B is a beauty
Exhibit C (I haven't taken any after photos of this one
yet but it required modification because of its gargantuan proportions.
I bought it for the colour.)
3 months in the offspring and I are dressed almost exclusively in Op-shop clothing, hand-me-downs and clothes that I made (but don't tell the bunny mums at Playgroup).
