Well what with the unexpected hot weather I’ve had to cave in and wear a different skirt today.
This is a self-drafted four gore skirt, a self-stitched Made By Rae Spring Top without the ruffles and, of course, self-stitched undies.
I’ve enjoyed thinking harder about what I wear this month although I haven’t managed to sew any new items for my wardrobe at all. I think October may bring more new garments but I still feel pulled by my uniform habit and lack of urge to have hundreds or even tens of different garments to wear and store somewhere. I blogged about this last year and my feelings are broadly still the same. I am thinking about replacement items rather than new ones and some of my long sleeved t-shirts are definitely looking towards retirement due to spillages that are not resolved by magical washing products. I will be looking for nice knits in Birmingham next Saturday for sure.
In other news, I have been peeling, coring and slicing apples with a fantastic new gadget and have boxes of frozen apple purée in the freezer to show for it as well as some apple rings hanging on thread in the airing cupboard to see if they dehydrate ok.
Miss Froo is covered in chickenpox which she has already shared with a neighbour despite us not knowing who shared them with her in the first place. As a result we have been going out to places where there are no people to infect and we have seen some beautiful days.
Autumn is on its way.
