Date: Sunday 6th May 2012
Weather: Sunny 93F/34C
Me Made Stuff worn: Dress made for Sew Weekly's Mad Men challenge.....but I thought the red, white and green of the dress was appropriate as it matches the Mexican flag. Lots more pics and info. about the make here. Me Refashioned Boots too, originally found on ebay and sequinned, painted and glitter-glued to within an inch of their lives.
Non Me Made Stuff worn: Various bangles from Target and Accessorize over the years, and a large sombrero from Party City bought last year for our first annual family Cinco De Mayo celebration.
Sew Weekly Challenge this week: Mix It Up: using at least 2 different prints in an outfit.
What I'm making: Another maxi dress, made from various bits of Dr Seuss quilting fabrics I have left over in my stash....this could be fun.....or a complete nightmare.
Things To Do Today (other than sewing): Actually it's was sewing free day today so.... I tidyed Melchett's room....it got seriously out of hand whilst she's been on her crutches and she needed a little help. Did some gardening, some of the bushes needed cutting back. And celebrated Cinco De Mayo (do you get the feeling our family needs any excuse for a party?)
Song I danced to during day before being shouted at by Goth Child: El Zopilote Mojado - Mariachi Aguila Real (you NEED this on your ipod, the strings are so beautifully out of tune it's fabulous)
TV I watched during the day: not much today, we were too bust...but did squeeze in a Project Runway (season 4) with Melchett.
Thoughts about outfit after wearing for the day: this is one of the early dresses I made before I really started to understand my differing sizes....so the bodice is way too big. One day I might try to fix this...possibly.
