It's the first Friday of the month which means it's dress down day at work. I wear at least one handmade items to work on this day. Here is the photo for today snapped about 10 minutes ago at around 1.10 am in the morning!
Today I wore my Burda wrap top. I wear this top all the time and in fact it is the only handmade item I wear to work. I hadn't worn it earlier in the week as my shift dresses and suits were at the dry cleaners so I had to find other things to wear. By the time Friday came it was still clean so I was able to wear it today. I did want to wear my Here Comes the Sun top underneath but it was in the wash.
When I came down in this outfit this morning my other half asked me if I wanted to change it. I asked why thinking that he was going to say it didn't look right or wasn't right for work. He said because you're not wearing a handmade item! The first time someone has thought what I'm wearing is shop bought (even though he should have known I had made this).
I have to say this top is great and have worn it loads of times (as I said - I wear it every week). This means I wash it every week and it still looks good. I now have some more wool jersey earmarked it to make another one of these.
I'm happy today because I now have two whole weeks off work! I was at work until around 10 pm finishing off and clearing the decks, which is why I was late taking this picture. I'm actually not very tired at the moment and it's now 1.30 am.
What's more it is going to be hot tomorrow and so I can wear one of my summer makes! Someone up there must have been listening to my rant about the weather.
I will be finishing off my second shift dress this weekend. It's looking good so far
