Here we go:
Dress: Style Arc Jacinta Maxi Dress. (Not Yet Blogged)
A bit hard to tell here, but this is a sleeveless dress with a cardi over the top. I wore this to a funeral, and it made me realise (later on) that my me-made wardrobe has become much more functional than it was this time last year; I would have really struggled to find something to wear for any unexpected event like this a year ago.
Top: Modified version of No.7 Dress (I think) in Drape Drape 2.
Leggings: Style Arc's Wallis Pant
Cowl: Grey Loop Cowl by Helen G.
Red Letter Day - an entire me made outfit! And three, not two items! I reserve the right to count this as two of my ten days if need be...
Shirt: Style Arc Safari Sam Shirt.
Tee: Style Arc's Riva Tee (NYB)
I know you can't really see the tee, but it's there. That gives me three days of the hoped-for ten :) This shirt is growing on me. I still find it a bit voluminous, and somewhat shapeless, but wearing it is like the garment version of comfort food.
Top: Refashioned blouse.
It was all about the scarf today, which was a Mothers' Day gift from my ten year old (he told his dad in a kind of puzzled resignation, "I don't what it is with women and scarves...") He chose it because it was handmade and a fundraiser for a school in the Philippines, and he thought I'd appreciate that. :) It's much more wearable than the big diamante earrings I remember getting for my mother one year...
Top: Deer and Doe's Plantain Top. (NYB)
My new favourite pattern. I foresee many of these...
Jumper: Mesh Jumper from Patons Book 8007 in Sorrento yarn.
I do love this. I must remember to make some white shorts to wear with it in summer. But, oh! how cotton grows with being worn! SO glad I accidentally knitted the smaller size. I'm hoping it'll behave like every other cotton jumper I've owned and shrink back when washed. Oh, and after seeing this photo I went back and measured the stripes. They are the same size in real life.
Very excited by warmer weather and the chance to pull this out again. Some clothes just make you feel happy... Might just take it up slightly though; 5cm should do it.
I was looking through my Flickr photos from last year's MMM. I think my outfits then were probably a good deal dressier or more "impressive" than this year, but I definitely remember looking forward to being able to wear comfy clothes again. I think that's the major difference between '13 and '14 so far - I'm completely happy in what I'm wearing each day. In terms of my goal to sew a wardrobe rather than random garments, I think that's a definite sign of progress!
Has MMM revealed anything to you so far? Any realisations/ discoveries/epiphanies? Do share!
