OWOP Days 4 and 5
OWOP Day Four: Zou Bisou Bisou
OWOP pattern: Simplicity 3688 navy blue trousers made in a lightweight wool. First blogged about here. The name for this OWOP day comes from the fact that I can't get this song out of my head! Anyone else out there completely obsessed with it?
Styling: I wore my trousers with my most recent Betty Draper blouse I made from a 1950's Maudella pattern that was a gift from MrsC. I've been dying to try out rolled bangs/fringe for some time. When I came across Esme's tutorial, I knew I had to try it. So this is my first go! I really like it!! I still need some practice securing it as well as how to make sure the hair rat is fully covered.
What I did: same as day three.
OWOP Day Five: Celebration!
OWOP pattern: Simplicity 3688 dark green trousers made in a lightweight suiting material. First blogged about here.
Styling: I wore my green trousers with my me-made 1940's sequined blouse (I LOVE this blouse) and my new brown 1940's shoes that I won in a giveaway from Q's Daydream Vintage (a gift certificate to Wildfeld Hall Vintage...woot! woot!).
What I did:
Working like days three and four but the difference is that today included the BEST NEWS EVER. I received the signed agreement for a major research grant I had applied for! YAY! Secure jobs are always good! David and I celebrated with some vino ;-)
