I taught a very good group at sew inn today, and it was lovely to pull on my outfit and realise not only was it all homemade, it was all Tessuti fabric too! I felt good all day - both comfortable and stylish. Very satisfying.
And now I am off to slip into these -
New silk satin PJ pants made from some really lovely remnants I picked up on my birthday at the Clegs annual remnant sale. Even at the super bargain remnant price these are still definitely a luxury item - and to get them out of the not really big enough piece I had to cut creatively and make a very wide doubled over sideways cuff on the bottom, but they are very nice. I decided some new PJs were in order when I altered/mended for the second time the really crappy ones I bought to wear to hospital when I was pregnant with Amy. I figure at 42 I deserve something better than target gym jersey pj pants 2 sizes too big. I had plans to make a lovely coordinating top (another too small remnant I was puzzling how to make fit) but whilst standing in the queue at ghastly chain store central buying children's gifts for weekend birthday parties I spied a plus size slubby cotton long sleeve T-shirt reduced to $5 and I am ashamed to say I saw an out and took it. So after the jeans in March that racks up as my second clothing purchase so far this year for anyone in my household - all up still under $50.
