It’s the end of Week 2 of MMM, so here’s my round up of the week! I’m glad to say I’m much happier this week than last week, although I’ve still identified some big gaps in my wardrobe.
Nettie Bodysuit not blogged
Cotton twill hollyburn skirt blogged here
I probably wont blog this version of the Nettie, but I will say that I LOVE the pattern. I chose a poor fabric (leftover merino-tencel) which is a bit thin and doesn’t have enough vertical stretch. I’m looking forward to making several others in more suitable fabric.
Houndstooth Moneta, blogged here. Double complimented by the receptionists at work, saying they loved the fabric and the dress, “houndstooth never goes out of style”. I totally agree. Mondays and Tuesdays I work at the GP part of Hokianga Hospital.
Lipstick: Soft Coral by Dr. Haushcka (my new “My Lips But Better”)
Gertie’s Shirtwaist Dress, blogged here. I get lots of compliments on this dress. So flattering from the front, so unflattering from the back! Wednesday’s I work in a little clinic with another doctor and a nurse – getting there takes a ferry ride and a half hour drive.
Lipstick: Soft Coral by Dr. Haushcka
Black plantain, blogged here
Blue Leopard skirt, blogged here.
Lipstick: Razzle by NYX
Thursdays I’m in another clinic (across the ferry, but only a 5 minute drive). This town has a higher Pakeha population, most of whom are “retired hippies”, it’s a total contrast to the high Maori population at my Wednesday clinic.
Cotton Scout Tee, blogged here. Would you believe I have another one of these cut out but not sewn, since I made this top.
Red pencil skirt, blogged here.
Lipstick: Venom by Urban Decay. Doesn’t match the skirt at all but IDGAF, it’s new and I love it
Friday half day! I work at the GP part of the hospital again. Then I spent all evening watching Craftsy classes.
Tiramisu dress, blogged here.
Forgot to take a proper photo, but luckily Mr. Guy took some photos of me cutting out a new skirt. I don’t wear this out very much because I don’t think it’s very flattering, but I wear it as a sort of loungewear. I’m not afraid to get covered in flour or similar while I’m wearing it.
Black Mabel Skirt, blogged here
Floral La Sylphide Top, not yet blogged
Lipstick: Razzle by NYX, again. Nice formula and looks goood. I love lipstick.
Today was a Golf Day fundraiser for the health center. Mr. Guy and I were planning on entering with another doctor and his wife, but for some reason we just didn’t. We went along to hang out with two med students and their boyfriends who were playing.
Gaps Identified So Far
- Loungewear! Need some leggings, trackpants, and I reeeeaally need to make myself a cozy hoodie – I always pinch Mr. Guy’s but it’s way too bit and not really that cozy. Plus I can’t push the sleeves up to my elbows which is annoying. I just need to decide between the Papercut or Seamster hoodie patterns.
- Cardigans – I already knew about this one, tried to remedy it and failed. I just need to find a nice cardigan pattern I think, then I can use a heap of merino to make up lots of cardigans in different colours. At the moment I have only three, one of which has a cuff almost completely fallen off.
- Jerseys – just warm stuff, basically! As winter approaches I need to keep warm
- I need more than one belt =/
- More undies
