A Minty 18th of May

Here I am, back on a (more) regular blogging schedule.  Very little to report on outside of my outfit for me-made day 18.  Sewing for myself has come to a screeching halt due the last couple days.  This is mostly due to the ramping up of preparations for Rem's upcoming graduation ceremony.  I just let out my first pair of men's suit trousers.  I'm not sure how I have escaped this type of alteration in the past, but I was very glad to learn that it's not a difficult job.  Especially given that I have another three pairs to let out!  Now, without further ado, here is what I wore today:
Minty top - American Eagle (?!) via TJMaxx, modified by me
Stripe & Floral Sash - thrifted
Chocolate double knit jersey skirt by me

Goodnight & Happy sewing!


  1. Hi,
    Just found your blog and think MMM is a great idea. I'm very new to dressmaking and was wondering where you buy your fabrics from?

  2. Hi Daydreamer,

    I buy fabrics from a few different shops, both local and online. The online shops I frequent include fabric.com, emmaonesock.com and fabricmartfabrics.com.
