flip flops, the unofficial start to summer – The Self-Made Wardrobe Week 45

The Self-Made Wardrobe is a project where I only wear garments I’ve made.
It’s a year long experiment in getting dressed without clothing labels –
it’s a year about noticing patterns, trying things, and observing what happens.

While the official start of summer isn’t until the 21st, the unofficial start of summer for me is the first day I pull out my flip flops. Yay Summer!

Now I really better get started on those summer dresses! Do you have any favorite summer dress patterns? I’d love any suggestions.

PS. Robin Hunter interviewed me about knitting design over on her blog as part of her weekly knitwear designer interview series… so head on over to her blog to read the interview!

  1. The interview was interesting to read, and I’d be interested to read interviews with other knitwear designers as well that Robin wrote. So thanks x 2 🙂

    Good luck with summer! It started for us several weeks ago and I’ve been trying to knit a summer top, but so far failed twice. Maybe on the next try…

      I’m so glad you like the interview Keren – Robin has a great set of questions and the other interviews she’s done make for fantastic reading.

      Good luck with try three of your summer top! – knitting for summer is always kind of tricky.
