Weeks 4 & 5, the end!

Well people, here we are! Time to breathe a sigh of relief that I no longer have to take a photo of myself every single day 🙂 It turns out this was the most difficult part of the challenge for me, sometimes you just don’t feel like having your photo taken (even if you’re the one taking it, ha).

Now that the challenge is over, I’m hoping to keep dressing as if I’m going to leave the house, rather than falling back into my old trackydak ways. I was reading Moorea from‘s post on Leigh-Ann’s blog, ‘3 Best Ways to Be Productive When You’re Self Employed‘ and her first tip is, ‘get ready every morning as if you were leaving the house’. I know some people work well in their pajamas, but I’m not one of them!

I really enjoyed coming up with some new outfit combos and realising that I do have plenty of clothes and to appreciate them! I like to think I’m careful about acquiring new things, but I so easily fall into the trap of seeing things I want and forgetting what I already have that fits the need. I really want to aim for a small wardrobe with things I truly love and feel great in, hopefully many of them made by me.

The MMM community was so inspiring and supportive and I highly recommend the challenge if you’ve ever thought about it but haven’t taken the plunge!


Colette Sencha

Oh sorry blog, I never meant to leave you this long. Let’s all try and put this behind us and move on, I know I have.

I made this Colette Patterns Sencha a looong time ago, I think it’s time for a new one!

This was a pretty easy pattern to make up, and of course the Colette pattern booklets are so lovely. I made Version 3 with the keyhole neckline, which I love on other people but is probably too high for me. Usually I wear it with my hair up and it’s better, but obviously I hadn’t figured that out yet when I took these photos! I have also since realised the hallway is not the best place for photos, mmmhmmm.

Next time I’ll probably make Version 1 and change it to a scoop neck, like Ink & Spindle’s beautiful versions.

Pattern: Colette Patterns Sencha, Version 3

Fabric: Polyester/cotton brushed back satin, aka Cuddleskin, from Spotlight. Yep, it’s a pajama fabric.
