It's been a busy week, with the Sew Scottish meet up in Edinburgh, a busy week at work and a jam packed (and sunny) bank holiday weekend.
I have two big trips planned for this year - as well as New York, at the end of May we'll be heading to Greece to do some island hopping. My wardrobe ideas for Greece are romantic, flowing airy dresses. Cottons and drapes wovens.
I had no expectations about whether I'd enjoy macrame. I'd seen some on instagram and it looked pretty cool, I also figured it'd be pretty difficult and require a lot of dedication. Reader. I was wrong.
As much as I love to look at new patterns, and join in discussions on social media, this isn't really a substitute for actual sewing experience. I might know a lot about the patterns out there, but I still have a lot to learn about sewing.
One of the most challenging aspects for me in getting started with a pattern is the adjustments. I don't think I'm alone in that!
I think the fabric really suits the style of the shirt, and is cool enough to wear in the heat, but good for layering in the colder months.
I have unrealistic expectations. I don't know about you but I find it really hard to think about my tendencies without being really self critical. I'm quite a reflective person, but I also give myself a really hard time.
