Date: Wednesday 9th May 2012 (sort of a cheat this, I forgot to take pic yesterday, so had to put it all on again today....yesterday I didn't have added paint on my feet, legs, hands and face from teaching an art lesson).
Weather: Sun, clouds 91F/33C AND IT RAINED! :)
Me Made Stuff worn: Refashioned dress from JCPenney sales in 2010...it was a size 28 so I had to chop and refit it down to my 20/22. Unfortunately I don't have any before pics. Also me made hair flower again made from wired red glitter ribbon and green felt. And personalised bag.....
Non Me Made Stuff worn: Bangles from Target again (2012) not quite sure why I'm sporting the German flag colours....red mules I bought on ebay years and years ago. And my new Iris Apfel/Harry Potter sunglasses.....which not being prescription I can't see a blinking thing through them....but I love them (from Target, where else).
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): Had Melchett off school today, her foot was too painful....doctors tomorrow.
Song I office-wheely-chair-danced and sang along to too loudly to during day: This Charming Man - The Smiths (BEST SONG EVER WRITTEN, EVER, that first 4 seconds of Johnny Marr's twangy guitar transport me back to summer 1984, instantly relaxing me and the lyrics are perfection).
TV I watched during the day: Britain's Got Talent Live Semifinals including the fabulous Beatrix Von Bourbon.
Thoughts about outfit after wearing for the day: This was the first short, fitted dress I converted or made....it's taken me a long time to convince myself I can wear it....but I love the boldness of the pattern.
