Date: Tuesday 8th May 2012
Weather: Sun and clouds 91F/33C
Me Made Stuff worn: Maxi dress made from sheets from Goodwill thrift store/charity shop. Lots more pics and info. here.
Non Me Made Stuff worn: Silver bangle had for decades, 2 mismatched earrings that have lost their partners so now I wear as a 'pair', cowgirl boots and cowboy hat from Target (do you get the feeling I shop there a lot?), bottletop burlesque necklace by MinxTotty.
Sew Weekly Challenge this week: Mix It Up: using at least 2 different prints in an outfit.
What I'm making: Another maxi dress, bodice is now made but still undecided about whether to make the skirt patchworky, or be inspired by Mena's post on mixing prints on Sew Weekly.
Things To Do Today (other than sewing): Air con bloke is coming to service our systems, emergency dash to Goth Child's school because she forgot her dinner money, and picking up a Melchett in pain after 2 visits to the school nurse's office (despite the crutches she's still in pain, going to the doctors on Thursday).
Song I sang along too loud to during day : Selina Gomez and the Scene - Love You Like A Love Song
TV I watched during the day: Britain's Got Talent Live Semifinals.
Thoughts about outfit after wearing for the day: Since the original making of this dress, I've scavenged the back zip out of it for another dress and taken in the bodice so it fits better. I love the ease of this dress now it's getting hot and wear it lots.
PS. what do you think I've got on the bottom of my cowgirl boots (and it's not yukky):
