Wrap-up 2015

The weather this year was very different from last year but the same things are still true, I need more layers and tops.

My sewing list for the remainder of the year is pretty clear, I just hope I can keep away from "skirts" as a blue denim one is calling out to me.

My goal to conquer elastic failed, I ran out of elastic!  New stocks have been purchased and hopefully some new lingerie will appear soon.

Now back to some regular blogging.

Your cardigans and jackets are great inspiration. I'm inspired to knit another cardigan, my first turned out huge.

Your MMM's are the best example of a well thought out, coordinated wardrobe.

Sarah Liz said...

I can see why everyone loves the Minoru - yours is lovely. Layers are definitely your thing - all yours harmonise and coordinate beautifully. Good luck with the elastic :)

Andrea F said...

Looking forward to reading your post on your Miette. I love the colour, it goes really well with the rest of your wardrobe.

Robyn said...

You've got such a me-made wardrobe. It seems really well thought out - you don't tend to make orphan items!

Robyn said...

'Great', you have such a 'great' me-made wardrobe!! (shouldn't comment when I'm over tired)

Sew, Jean Margaret said...

As I have said before, you have such a well planned wardrobe. Something I need to concentrate on a bit more. I have enjoyed seeing your daily outfits. Thank you for sharing.

L said...

Love your MMM outfits. =) You are working that Kwik Sew top pattern; gotta add that one to the to-buy list. Rock on

Another great wrap up. Your Minoru remains one of my favourite items of yours. I remember seeing it and you for the first time at Simplicity ID a couple of years back in your Minoru and being blown away by the quality of the sewing.
