We also received a taste of much warmer temperatures which skip right over all the in-between clothes + the lightest of layers. Last summer I felt like I would have appreciated a couple more pairs of shorts in my wardrobe, so I started thinking about what ones I'd like to wear. Shorts are one of the easiest things to sew (elastic waisted versions anyway), so I worked on personalizing the fit of a pattern I already have. On the very last (rainy + cold) day of April, I sewed this block printed pair (above) out of a scrap of fabric just big enough to squeeze the pattern pieces onto.
My trainers situation also received some thought + action in April. Along with flats (+ an appearance or two of sandals), those trainers have been all I need during this transition season.
We are going to a wedding in May, + I've been thinking about what I have to wear. I thought I'd try a jumpsuit that I tried earlier in the fall, but didn't keep. The day after I purchased it, I received an email that that jumpsuit along with the rest of the sale section was another big percentage off. I ended up purchasing a few things. I have yet to receive the package, but I will record what I keep here + share a little bit more about them in the weeks to come. (Update: kept one pair of soft, swingy pants.) With this purchase + a project or two I have in mind, I think I have met the needs I can foresee for the next few months. I'm hoping that this is the beginning of a little pure enjoyment of what I have. (yay!)
For accountability's sake (April):
bought fair :: tank + soft pants
made :: shorts
sold :: trainers
