Wood needles & wooden yarn, another Ranunculus cast on, this one in lacy eco friendly tencel. The Lykke Driftwoods are giving this slippery knit just enough enjoyable drag.
Iced coffee, always.
Swedish wooden shoes, more specifically: Cola brown Audubon Clogs by Troentorp.
Floral sundress made from a thrifted sheet. I left the sweet piped hem on the bottom and now I’m not entirely sure if this has just enough Half Pint (Laura Ingalls) potato sack cuteness or if it’s coming off as an outdated “modest” maternity look?
(p.s I’m not pregnant)
Kiki say, it’s so hot out, all we can do is sit inside and keep watch on the neighborhood.
Most days I’m a sleeveless, shapeless, shift dress and a cardigan, today I have sleeves and a cowl ..a slow fashion linen wrinkle, just trying to do my best, to be my best, so I can give my best.
It’s Me Made May, a month where handmade clothes and ethical fashion are the topic. Taking a moment to recognize who makes our clothes, who benefits or who suffers from our decisions. The intent is not to shame old habits, but to guide us to better ones, gently reminding us to step away from trend buying, understand where the components of our lives come from, where they really go when we are done with them, and to make educated, respectful choices when we can.

Fitting, a small batch of handmade Frozen Charlottes on my work bench today.
This color 💕 that absolutely perfect dusty color, I love the blue jeans & scraped knees of this!
This pale bag worked up in that wonderfully starchy cotton fabric, 100% of the reason I hate pre-washing fabrics is loosing that stiffness. (Question: I also cut a dress out of this fabric ..would it be too over the top to coordinate with my tote by adding in another matching layer to my knitting power suit?)
This soak, a woolly perfumed blend of brambly hay, rose & eucalyptus.
