A couple of posts ago, the lovely Jessica left a comment suggesting that I reach for my trusted Simplicity 3835 to help with my panic-stitching of a new black work wardrobe. Well, she is clearly a visionary as that's exactly what I did to produce this blouse fashioned from some type of black stretchy cotton with a plush polka dot effect. I redrafted the sleeve pattern as I found the original one too tight and I added an elastic casing around the cuff. It received it's first wearing for work on Day 17 with my self-stitched black sailor trousers and pants.
Another rapidly stitched new top, this time using the Port Elizabeth top available on Burdastyle. I used some super cheap 100% cotton and added a little patch pocket to the breast to prevent it from being the worlds plainest top. It's pretty cropped but I got around that by pairing it here with my high waisted Jenny skirt (also from Burdastyle). Oh, and self-stitched pants and leopard coat of course.
A day off! More training about wearing self-stitched navy tulip skirt, ruffle front jumper, vest, pants and leopard coat.
No photo, sorry. I actually wore the same outfit as Day 6 but I ended up doing a 14 hour shift at work after which I came home and put my pyjamas on before I remembered to get a photo taken. My pyjamas are, in fact, self-stitched also but I realised that after that amount of time at work (with only half an hour of the 14 hours spent sitting down, may I add) I looked like something you'd find at the bottom of a dustbin, so decided the day was best left undocumented.
Ahh! My first opportunity to explore my new home town with my boy. The sun blessed us with it's presence all day. I wore self-stitched sailor trousers, bustier line T-shirt, Saint Cardigan and pants. Ahoy!
