MMM, Day 17

Today I am wearing Butterick 5284 on top, which I also wore on Day 6.  The skirt is Butterick 5042.  This is such a fun skirt; I'm glad to be able to integrate it a little better in my wardrobe.  I don't generally sew a lot of Butterick patterns, as their designs tend toward the boring, but they are good for basics.

ETA: Jess asked where I was going all dolled up.  Ready for a laugh?  Grocery shopping...  And that was all. That's the exciting life of the SAHM!

  4. A few years ago I tried leaving the house "dressed up" for an entire week no matter where I went. It was pretty funny to hear Luca ask me in a very concerned voice "what party are you going to?" And I wasn't even as dressed up as you are today! Maybe I'll try doing that again. It sure feels good.

  7. You look fantastic and good for you to dress up a little. Today I wore a skirt ,etc. and my husband asked me why I was dressed up. I said I just feel like dressing like a girl today.
    It made me feel like I was living back in the 60's.

  11. Wow you look so nice and I love that skirt! So, do you find the fit of Butterick patterns ok? I find that am veering away from Butterick, Simplicity, McCalls completely.
