Marking Time

  1. Confused here by this: is it saying your workplace is more casual, and that you rpersonal style is more casual…? ” I need to re-assess my working wardrobe, as my college style is significantly more casual than schoolteacher garb.” Thanks–good luck with it.

    1. lol yes in college most people dress significantly more casually than in school, so my wardrobe has shifted over the last 6 years or so, and none of my more ‘teachery’ things fit anymore. What a shame, I need more clothes lol. I will need the shoes to go with them too- pre-hip replacement I used to wear high heels every day. Not any more!

  2. Congrats on the new job! How exciting. I start a new job next week so it’s all change for both of us!
    You’re really organised with your planning 😱 can’t wait to see your Alexander Henry fabrics!! 😍


    1. Change is the best…sometimes lol. Some of the AH fabrics have been sitting in stash for a while, a couple are brand new. Small pieces though because it ain’t cheap, so I need to be crafty…


  3. Well, that sounds like a plan to me! Just wanted to let you know that your post about Style Arc has encouraged me to take the plunge, and I ordered 3 patterns. Now excitedly cutting out the Patsy top. Let’s see how we go.

  4. My brother in law switched to school teaching from law and was surprised to find the dress code stricter in teaching. I wonder if it’s the same in other countries or if it’s just the UK?

    Your challenge sounds fun, and with more realistic rules than SWAP.

    1. Not all teachers dress smartly- primary teachers particularly tend to dress for comfort and clothing that hides the paw marks [and snot marks] of small children. Ew. I always found it easier to pretend I was in control by dressing authoritatively lol College is way more casual. It’s going to be weird enough getting used to NOT being called by my first name again…

  5. Oh dear, the difficulties of needing new clothing 😂.
    My main gripe at the moment is that I don’t need a darn thing. Not great in getting your sewing mojo up and running again.
    Enjoy the planning 😃.(And I’d be up for a market visit AND LUNCH!)
