I think my main takeaway from week 2 of Me Made May is how much my indecision about shoes slows down getting dressed in the morning. Since I’ve been working from home, I haven’t fundamentally changed the things I wear but not having to choose shoes that are the right fit for my day ahead removes a huge burden!
A couple of days this week I felt that I didn’t even have the time to head outside my front door and snap some pictures (usually takes me about a minute if that’s an indication of how slammed for time I felt), so I took some even quicker snaps in my cane chair (which I sit cross-legged in as my work-from-home desk)!
A couple of days this week, I wore some forthcoming Muna and Broad patterns that I’ve been sewing up over the weekends and evenings in order to ‘wear test’. The Nullabor Cami is a forthcoming pattern which uses 1 metre of fabric for most sizes! There’s also an option for a bias cut dress, which uses 2 metres of 150cm fabric at my size (which i’m thrilled about)! The shirt is one of the view available in our forthcoming Waikerie Shirt pattern- I love that I’m slowly building a collection of patterns in my stash that I can use to make the relaxed natural fibre clothes that I wanted so desperately to buy but which weren’t available in my size.
I’m not sure if May will see me return to the office- this could create some logistical concerns for my outfits, both in terms of my no-outfit-repeat pledge, and my indecision with shoes!
I am just catching up with blogs and see you have a Waikerie shirt pattern coming out! My parents live in the Waikerie in South Australia, so its very exciting! Is there a Waikerie in NZ? I googled it but didn’t see one. Well done for any photos at all, I haven’t even tried this year!
A little known fact is that Leila and I are both Aussies and we’re going to encourage folks to pronounce the shirt like ‘bakery’ since we remember the bakery fondly!
OMG! My American husband fondly remembers the ‘Wakery Bakery’😂😂😂.
