I'm officially sick of summer (or at least sick of being perpetually uncomfortable from heat and humidity--there are some nice things about summer, which maybe I'll focus on another day) and am longingly looking ahead toward fall. But first, let's take a look back and see how I did at my Closing The Gaps goals for summer.
1. Finish my lawn chair sundress. Technically this is done, but there is a fitting problem, which I don't want to talk about right now because I might throw a tamtrum. I still hope to fix it and get some wear out of this dress before summer really ends.
2. Solid orange top. Done!
3. Refashion my ill-fated shirt dress. Done!
4. Finish the cardigan I started knitting in February that was supposed to be for spring. Done!
5. Make a summer dress in a solid color. Not done. I lost interest in doing this because it didn't feel like a high priority.
6. Knit or sew a drapey, unstructured top in a neutral color. I ended up saving myself a lot of time, money and trouble by buying this top at the Salvation Army. Done!
7. A solid red top. Bought this basic tee at Old Navy, and it goes with at least four of my summer skirts. Done!
Summary: Five (and a half?) out of seven ain't bad. Now it's time to take a look at my fall wardrobe and figure out how best to utilize my time and budget to fill some gaps there. Stay tuned!
