There are several items I really like out of the February Burda. I need to get out of my sewing funk and get crackin’. I find that since I started sewing, I get bored of my clothes pretty quickly. I also find that I purge clothes pretty quickly. I’ve lost about 10 pounds this last year and the pants and skirts that used to fit me snug are now loose and falling off of me. I should probably work on that sometime. I haven’t worn many skirts this winter because I’ve been juggling getting kids to two different daycares and trying to make it to work on time everyday (I have!) and haven’t really been that good at caring for my own appearance. Is it much harder to wear a skirt instead of pants? No, not really, but it involves tights and boots and coordination and blah. I’ve been on a steady diet of black/grey “pants and knit top” for the entire school year. It’s easy to coordinate, I don’t have to think about footwear, and it matches my mood. Time to change that. I’m really tired of black.
Here are my favorites from the February Burda. I love these two pencil skirts and the dress is cute and still very easy to wear (read: an easy alternative to black pants). I love a good t-shirt always and I should probably make some of those in bright colors.
If I have time tonight, I’m going to start on kid jammies and maybe make a pseudo plan for clothes for me as well.
