My June Getup


~ yep, I'm wearing all Tina Givens garb, with all my modifications ~


I'm so glad MeMadeMay'17 is over, I might just post only once this month!



~ TG Maria pattern top and skirt ~


~ this looks nothing like the image on the pattern, but I still like it ~


~ and my ebay sandals ~


Before I trot off to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie's Shoe and Tell when they go live...


I do want to mention what I learned from participating in the MMM project:
  • I wore stuff I had made and had never worn before.  It seems I was able to find other pieces that went well with them.
  • Wearing a different pair of shoes each day made me realize how often I chose the same few pair over and over.  Having to pair up other shoes with an outfit really seemed to to be a game changer.
  • Not wearing the same things with the same things was also interesting.  I never realized before how often I do that.  So I tried not to this month.  It's so automatic.
  • I realized how much I really do luv layering.  When all I wore was a dress, it felt very plain and boring.  Even when it was a great dress, shoes and sox.
  • I've been inspired to sew in the holes of my wardrobe - make more slips, bloomers, underdresses, overdresses, sheer layers, stockings, sox, crop tops and things that go with stuff I've already made.
Thanks Zo, for making it happen Year 8.
