MMJ Days 13-18

Here's a bit of a Me-Made June catch up:

Day 13:
About the Outfit:
White blouse from 1943 DuBarry pattern, navy wool skirt from 1940 pattern and beloved Ness shoes.

Where was it worn?
To work.  It was a bit muggy outside hence the crazy frizzy hair :)

Days 14 and 15:

About the Outfit:
My new black and white dress from a 1939 pattern.

Where was it worn?
Oh yes! I wore this twice in a row!  Working from home one day and then to work the next day.  After work I  met up with the lovely Katie from Monkeysocks Learns to Sew.  We had a fabulous time and a few gin and tonics :)

Day 16:

About the Outfit:
My "Paddington Bear" dress from a 1967 pattern and my favourite Ness shoes!

Where was it worn?
To work and then at home sewing!

Day 17:
About the Outfit:
Me-made bolero and matching skirt from late 40's/early 50's pattern, blouse from Monsoon.

Where was it worn?
To work and then out to drinks with friends!  My colleague just passed her Viva (dissertation defense) for her PhD.  Congrats again Lou!!!

Day 18:

About the Outfit:
Refashioned blouse with embroidery and gold leaves skirt.

Where was it worn?
Running errands, cuddling with the kitties and sewing!

In other news, we found a new place to live! YAY!  We'll be moving in mid-July and I'm really excited about the new place.  Here's a photo of the living room:
It's so colourful and the perfect size for us! And I'll have fun setting up a new sewing room! More photos once we get all moved in.  How's your weekend going?

    Praise to your energy and all your work on show this month. I'm getting on with my 1930s blouse made from a dress pattern. :-) Have a great Sunday!

  7. I know what a hassle it is to move, but at least you have a good looking place to settle in to. I have yellow interiors too, and it really warms up the place on a grey day; my man was brought up in a house painted totally white and was taught to think of bright colour as a sign of mental instability! Luckily I've turned him around.
    BTW, do you work in a scientific field of research? Just wondering, since I've grouped all the sewing scientists together on my blogroll. ;)
