I can’t keep up, such changeable weather. I last wore this Joe Fresh tunic here and I’m not sure it’s a whole lot warmer today but I am braving Nehara ballet flats instead of boots. They come in wide width and are so comfortable. I haven’t had patent shoes since my “party shoes” when I was 5 – anyone else have those, t-bar Clarks, leaf punch-outs?!
Still no luck with the slippy sloppy Target Marguerite wedges, $14 of heel grips and ball pads and they’re still unwearable. I will try a different kind of heel grip, perhaps a less smooth one, but it’s just the design of the shoe… lesson learned, walk around on carpet to test, just “fitting” and standing still isn’t enough.
In other news, I have unboxed the sewing machine, managed to thread it and the bobbin and start on some very wonky test stitching on remnants. Yikes! It is scary. Even the fabric stores are scary, a secret world, I have no idea how it all works and walked out twice before I could get some help. I have already jammed fabric and thread under the plate thingies (note firm grasp of sewing machine terminology;) ) but managed to solve it, phew. I think my project today, well it’s hardly a project, will be to take up the hem on a Boden tunic I bought in clearance last winter. It’s a very awkward in-between length and looks as if I’m wearing a dental smock, needs a good few inches to make it proper “top” length. If I haven’t stitched through a finger I will report back soon!
