Days 1-3 Summer '16

Hi guys, 

Since May 1st, I've been wearing a handmade garment almost every day. So far in June, I've worn three handmade shirts and one pair of pants. I haven't sewn anything new yet, but I hope to spend time sewing this weekend.

Here are my three outfits so far this month:

Rayon challis shirt, Scout Tee pattern
Linen blend pants from the book Simple Modern Sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha.
Sandals are from Naot. 

I wore this out to dinner with the family, celebrating my wedding anniversary with Jason. We've been together since 1999 but we've only been married for six years. 

Scout tee made with double gauze, which is a very lightweight, breezy fabric. This top was perfect for going on a walk with friends, to the playground and to feed ducks at the pond. I stayed cool and didn't feel like a slob in some ratty old t-shirt.
Jeans that I cut off when I realized that I didn't have any long shorts, and I wanted some.
Orange Chuck Taylors. 

My third Scout tee, in a cloud print cotton. This one does wrinkle fairly easily, especially if I have to carry my son around. The heat of his body seems to iron in the wrinkles. I love the print, so I wear it anyway, wrinkles be damned.
Jean skirt from Boden (maybe from a year ago?). Looks like they still have it.
My funny Camper sneakers. I've had these for around 10 years and I still love them.

Wish me luck with doing some productive sewing this weekend. I hope you have a good one!
