May is a super busy month for any teacher. But for a teacher who is retiring, it also means "Better get this room cleaned out - stat!" I do not want to have to go back in after school ends just to clean out all of my stuff! Of course, there is still Open House (tomorrow night - yikes!), the school carnival, other school events, and all the end of the year testing! No wonder I haven't had time to post every day on my blog! I've been pretty good about taking pictures each day of what I've been wearing, but I couldn't tell you what I wore on which day. So, here's what else I've worn for #mmmay15 this month, in no particular order!
This picture was taken this morning. I am not a T-shirt kind of girl, and never really have been. They just don't fit me right and they're not flattering. But, today was our last testing day, and we have these school spirit Tshirts that say "Turn up the Heat" that we're supposed to wear for testing. It was a little chilly this morning, so I have on this light weight linen-look jacket. I think it's an older Simplicity pattern that I recently gave away. It's an easy to throw on jacket. I think I made 2 or 3 of these a few years ago. Still a favorite. Why did I give away that pattern? Oh well, there are many jacket patterns
out there in my stash that I need to try.
Oh, and BTW, I love, love, love these shoes. I will be so sad when they get old and fall apart!
This picture was taken after I got home from work and changed my shirt. I had bible study here tonight, so I wanted to change and still be comfy. This is a Cutting Line Designs pattern called Simplify Your Life.
The linen is from my favorite linen source, fabrics-store.com
On right is a New Look top that I made a few summers ago. Again with the linen. And the wrinkles. I do Iron my clothes, but this one was taken at the end of the day. The pattern is NL A6104. I like the fit on this one, the pintucks, and the button front. I really must make this again! The skirt was self drafted using the book Sew what! Skirts. You can't really see it, but I love the orange band at the bottom that was made from a remnant of Amy Butler fabric. The green in that matches the green in the skirt perfectly.
As I got dressed that morning, I realized that I definitely have a shortage of me-made white tops! I wear white tops a lot, but need to make a lot of them since I only have one that I can think of that I've made!!
