Friends, Me Made May is trucking right along, and here we are, almost one week into it! I've come to realize that I have quite a few pieces that haven't appeared on the blog yet, especially the Minoru jacket (eep!)
Top: McCall's 5929 (New)
Skirt: Simplicity 6197
The weather was glorious out! It was perfect for roping my Lizzie into taking pictures outside of work. She wanted me to swing on a lamp post, so I did. All of my smoking coworkers looked on with mild amusement.
Top: Jersey Bow Blouse
Skirt: Simplicity Amazing Fit
Dinner with the lovely Michelle of Tres Bien Ensemble. Have you seen this AMAZING Day 1 outfit of hers? It's the bees knees.
Top: Simplicity 2501 (New)
Skirt: Mama Grand's khaki skirt (refashioned)
I was wiggling too much when my dear friend Becky was taking these photos, so alas, no front views made the cut. I was able to throw this on the dress form when I got home for some less action-y shots.
I love this color so much, and I'm so glad that I have enough of this bedsheet set to make a vintage Butterick dress. You'll see the skirt from the set soon enough, as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer!
Inside shot since I love how it's bound in purple as well. Color win? I think so.
May the 4th be with you!
I wore this dress to a Doctor Who forum at DePaul University on Saturday, where I got several compliments and was rather snuggly while watching The Doctor's Wife (cried, of course) and The Unearthly Child (whoa, the first Doctor was seriously angry)
GEEK OUT MOMENT:
Friends, you know I love Doctor Who with all my heart. Let me impress upon you the heart palpitations that happened when a certain actor's sister (*cough* John Barrowman *cough*) was on a panel talking about the show ... and then the man himself sent a video message to this small contingent of geeks #allthefeels
I also got to create magnificent art with a Tenth Doctor:
All in all, a geektastic and lovely day.
Sweater: Sewaholic Renfrew (New)
Skirt: Colette denim Meringue
The weather has been pretty strange here lately (big surprise, I know), so my standard outfit is quickly becoming boots, skirt, and sweater. I've got my fingers crossed that I'll be able to wear some of my summer dresses before this month is over.
Dress: Simplicity 2549
Love this dress - one of my favorites to wear to work and out for drinks after.
I am finding that I am guilty of sewing for Me Made May ... during the actual month. I'm finally getting my sewing mojo back, and I think this was the kick in the pants that I needed. Speaking of pants, I'm off to finish my Simplicity 3688 trousers to wear for work tomorrow :)
Have a marvelous night, all!
