However, this week has been so busy at work, I've worked three 10 hour days and one 9 hour day. I hope the worst of it is over now and tommorrow I can just do my normal 8 hours as I am exhausted! All this extra work meant that I didn't finish the blue top I was making to wear with this skirt - I cut it out ands began sewing it, all that is left to do is the side seams and the hem. But I just simply had not time to finish it up which really sucks as I had the best intentions to get it done and keep up my record for Made by Me May!
I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself though, it's currently very busy at work and I knew it would be at this time of year - so I knew it would be a huge challenge to keep up Made by Me May for the full month when I'm only a beginner sewer really. I'm sure some people who do these kinds of challenges have made LOADS of clothes, over lengthy periods of time. I only really began making clothes in December last year.
Want to know a secret about this pink shirt? It's actually a dress! One of my friends from work gave it to me when she was having a wardrobe clear out - however she is quite petite, so on me the dress was WAY too short. I didn't know what to do with it for a long time, then it hit me I could just wear it as a shirt.
