So last Friday was the last day of MMM ’13 and the theme for our photo was “red”.
As soon as I saw this I just knew where I wanted my photo to be!
The owner of this house is painting this wonderful scene on the side of their home and every day when I see it I smile, I just love the cuteness of these characters and if anyone can tell me if they have an origin I would appreciate it.
|Thank you Jonathon for the photo!|
I am wearing:
Top: Kwik.Sew 3740 cowl neck top in white/toffee/red/brown knit, previously worn on day 5.
Skirt: Burda 04-2009-101 in burgundy corduroy made in May 2012.
Accessory: Purchased gold band choker with burgundy stone drop pendant and me-made earrings.
Tights: Black tights.
Boots: Betts black boots.
I have a confession to make, the photo below was taken earlier in the month when it was warmer and a lot less traffic (this is on a very busy road during peak hour) and I was feeling a bit self conscious when DH took this photo in the middle of the day, however it shows you more of the wall.
You can all breath a sigh of relief, Me Made May has now finished!
There were an amazing 412 members all with varying degrees of commitment to how much Me Made they would wear a day or week. There are quite a few patterns I now want to try!
It got a bit difficult as the weather cooled, but I did manage to stick to my pledge of “only wearing me made items” but this did cause quite a few repeats for skirts and tops however I did manage not to repeat an outfit which I was very pleased about.
So what did I learn this time around:
- Again like last year cardigans are what I was missing, particularly a navy one!
- I tried some different colour combinations and was very pleased with the looks, now I need to continue experimenting and not to fall into the comfortable.
- For the first time in my sewing life, my casual wardrobe is much larger than my work wardrobe as I have to replace some pants (you have seen the muslin’s) and skirts which I didn’t get around to doing before May started.
