Me-Made-May - Day 6 (Work & Play)

On the left, what I wore to work today. On the right, what I intend to wear when I go out shortly.

I was fiendishly uncomfortable with the work look. I am just not used to layering shirts, etc in nontraditional ways. I kept tugging at the stupid shirt and the belt... it felt trendy in a ridiculous way.

On the right, much more my speed. Easy and relaxed.

The dress is Simplicity 2933. The shirt is Butterick 4985. Store bought belt for work, store bought scarf for play.

Is it sad I have to reach back 2 years to find sewing basics? I think so.

I like the layered look here. It makes the shirt seem like a short-sleeved jacket.
