Over the weekend, I bought a sewing machine, learned how to use it, and made myself a piece of clothing. Well, when I say “I” did these things, I mean I made my mom help me with every single step. But now that I know how to turn on/thread/stitch with my new piece of equipment, I think her work here is done(ish). I’m planning to do my next project totally without help, which means I’ll be choosing something easy, like an elastic waist skirt (for the love of god, nothing with zippers!).
Also shown here: My summer uniform. Plaid shirt, messy hair. Good thing I don’t have a “real job” to go to—people seem to expect bloggers to show up to everything in mumus or sweatpants, so I like to consider myself overdressed for most interviews. That’s totally a thing, right?
