So, I decided I wanted to make life more complicated, ya know?
First I decided that for the month of June I’d have my kids wear only home-made clothes.. because that’s COMPLETELY rational. Then I did hardly anything to get ready for it..
and then right at the end of May I decided to take on some new hobbies.
I started brewing kombucha (which I could speak at length about),
and I also started keeping chickens. (again, SO much to say!)
For now though I’ll post about clothes.
I like to sew. I dabble really. I do not use patterns because .. I just haven’t. I REALLY need to, that should be my next challenge.
I meant to take a photo the first day, but I forgot with all the other busy stuff going on.
Purple jersey top with crochet yoke. Grey “goblin king” leggings, and a 4 paneled stretch denim skirt with lace trim.
Pink ribbed leggings, a blue striped jersey halter top with white bias tape straps, and her yellow ruffle skirt.
Laurel wore: Gray jersey halter and a 4 panel houndstooth skirt with pink floral ruffle.
Alice wore: bright green spring top with blue plaid pleated skirt.
Both girls cheated and wore store-bought teeny short shorts under their skirts to keep their modesty while at school.
Embarrassingly enough she wore the same clothes from the day before because she wanted to and it was the weekend and I really didn’t care! She did add her new “jacket” that is not only unfinished, but also rather odd. It’s actually a felted 2xl men’s sweater, so it’s not really “home-made” but it IS certainly re-fabricated or … up cycled or whatever you want to call it. I count it!
Purple witch skirt. (I call it this because it was part of Laurel’s witch costume when she was 2..) A blue “princess dress up shirt” and a blue crocheted shrug thing that is horrible and.. yet again, unfinished!
Pink swirly bermuda length shorts with failed pockets (first draft.. .. ugh!) with umbrella shirt with pink ribbing bow straps. Ruby Gloom “jacket”
Red Chinese dragon brocade skirt (seriously, from Chinese New Year) and the Spring Green shirt. Also a cape for good measure. .. She chose these items together.. but she didn’t have much to choose from so… it’s not all her fault.
Vintage pillowcase peasant dress.
Goblin King gray pants.
Alice wore: Whale pajama set, again, unfinished, and not pictured because she decided to be naked half way through the day, then played dress up, then found whatever from her drawers and put it on. I dont like to fight with the 3 year old about clothes.. she doesn’t understand me needing to keep up with my challenge..
Gray jersey top again,Red and polka dot skirt and Ruby Gloom jacket.
Crabby halter shirt, yellow ruffle skirt, and blue and purple capri pants. (that self destructed the first day worn, rubbish!)
okay. Maybe I can update more than every 6 days so it’s not so exhausting. maybe.
