Day 4: With 2 of my wonderful women, catching up on life :)
|Wearing rtw top, and my "Basklecloth Skirt"|
so I dressed for it. Never happened.
|Burda Style Tneck top, from November '11|
Day 6: Looks a lot like Day 5. Almost is
|Katherine Tilton Zip T, blogged here,|
and Marcy T pants V8712 - I didn't blog this particular pair,
because I've already made them enough times I have no more to say!
Day 7: Managed to get out and about,
because I had an appointment and had to.
Marcy T (yes, MORE Marcy!) Jacket V8795
and Marcy T pants (yes, AGAIN!)
Days 8 and 9:
This was my view of the world for those 2 days.
Day 10 - Feeling 100% again!!! Yay!!!
Good thing, because I had a client to see
This is Theme Friday - todays theme was Sewing/Creating Space
Rather than follow trend and pose in my actual sewing room, I recruited my
two mannequins to model a couple of bustles with me.
I'm a bit rumpled after a day of trucking around the woods (yes, dressed like that - my work does take me into some interesting environments sometimes.....)

What I've learned this week (besides a whole lot of life lessons), thanks to the Me-Made experience:
I can easily wear the same ole' thing 2, even 3 days in a row, if I have no real reason to dress differently. Sewing for myself had definitely upped my wardrobe and appearance consciousness, and Me-Made-May is taking it to another level. This is a good thing. :)
I'm already identifying holes in the wardrobe. Need a bit more color in tops, since I prefer to wear softer colors (not black) when seeing clients. It's an energy thing.
Thank goodness we are having some major Weather Variety! I would be doing a whole lot of repetition if this were happening mid-winter or mid-summer!
I've already done several bags full of closet and drawer purging. Most is being re-homed, some is slated for ripping and upcycling. Closets and drawers both have a lot more breathing room :).
I'm still surprised that I'm managing to take a picture every day, and other than the 2 jammie days, I've repeated some items, but no complete outfits. Yet. Still LOVING the whole concept!!!
Thanks to Zoe, and to ALL of the MMM participants who are making this process such an inclusive and fun challenge! I'm loving seeing all of the daily outfits on the flickr page!
And I'm hoping to get caught up on a bunch of sewing this weekend :)
