Here it is! Happy May Day everyone, I hope you’re all enjoying a day off work: it’s bank holiday here in France and a lot of people are going to buy some lily of the valley and then demonstrate in the streets but I won’t be doing any of it! Especially as we’re in the middle of two rounds of presidential elections and I don’t want to make a political statement.
Back to sewing and me-made, thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments on my pyjamas, it was really nice and made me smile everytime I received a note informing me of a new comment!
Here is my first me-made outfit, very casual as you can see, it’s perfect for staying at home and sewing. I’m still wearing a turtleneck jumper because it’s cold here, even though it’s supposed to be spring.
I’m wearing a pair of linen trousers I made last year, they are really comfortable to wear! The pattern is Burda 8087, wide-legged trousers with a front fly and simple waistband.
The jumper is the Lightweight Pullover by Hannah Fettig, the most simple and most worn jumper I have ever knit. I probably wear it so often because it’s so basic and in a neutral colour. The yarn is Drops Alpaca, a 100 % alpaca that is soft and drapey, but still a little itchy on the neck.
