Two new projects on the go.
This losing weight business is really hard in more ways than just losing the weight. That has almost been the easiest part – wierd thing to say – don’t get me wrong losing the d…… kilos was not all fun and glory.
But clothes-wise I thought I had it all planned. I had kept a lot of clothes from my way up in weight – so I planned to wear these on the way down as well. Good plan – only I hadn’t taken my own little devious mind into account in the brilliant plan. It is still playng trix on me – as I know it always will – so I should have known better and kept my mind under control.
‘Cause what it ended up with was that when I finally talked myself into having a go at the scales – I had lost 15 kg in abouth 5 months. Nothing criminal at all – except all the clothes I had looked forward to wearing on my way down…well…most of it was too big (luckyly for a good friend and the nearby second hand shop).
This also meant that all of my coats and jackets were too big – so I set out made a new jacket. Loved it – and just the other day I found out I’d actually worn it to pieces. Day of mourning – oh my…and then vanity struck – and even though the huge hole is under one arm and can’t been seen – the vain little me just can’t show myself it it…
So tadaaa…need to make a new one and I ended up not being able to settle on just one pattern – ended up with two: Made som alternations so they fit better what I had in mind and then I went rumaging through my chest of fabric goodies…and found some hand-wowen black wool – very nice. Perhaps not as spring- or summer friendly as it could have been…but…there are room for more than one, two…three…jackets.
Jackets are great accessories – so now I’ve cut two.
