I think I might have a problem. I struggle a bit with age appropriate behaviour. Or rather taste. A couple of weeks ago I made a birthday cake for a family member.
“Lovely” you might think. “A football cake for her son”. No, it is a football cake for her husband.
And then I made this skirt, after carefully (translates: spending 20min) choosing fabric combinations:
And you know what? I do not regret it. I even want to make another one. They are perfect as I can wear them now and after pregnancy. I do slightly worry about my taste though as I clearly have the taste of a 5 year old. Except that the real 5 year old is much better at this. This is what she chose for her skirt:
It took her about half an hour back and forth and comparing and I found the combination really bonkers but she was right. It is perfect. Maybe a step too far for me to wear but no need to worry, I am not making a bigger version of it.
This is very similar to my orange bit and it is the one that i used as a lining for my niece’s bag.
My daughter insisted on this one when I ordered fabrics a while ago. I was secretly making fun of this choice… until I realised that it reminded me a bit of this one (sorry no picture yet) which I had ordered for myself (in the same order). I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree :)
Oh, and a little update on the taste of the other apple:
Remember, he usually comments all my finished products with a polite “No, thank you.” Well, I realised that I never make things he has asked me for or where he had actually chosen the fabric. This time it was a little bit different. He could chose the fabric and I suggested then a top (as it was a jersey) and he decided on one with a hood.
Anyway, I proudly (and nervously) presented the finished top and got a…..
“Thank you, can you please put it in my drawer. I will wear it tomorrow”
Which he didn’t.
He did wear it once though. When it had about 35 degrees, with the hood up.
