Me-Made-May Outfit 9, 10, and 11

Are you guys breathing a sigh of relief that I combined these outfit photos?? Its seems that single outfit post are not quite in vogue for MMM. Whatever!

 Shirt: Grainline Studio Scout Tee V2
Jeans: Marginally me made- from my closet, skinnified by me but still don't fit very well. 

I wore this to work last Friday- its not very exciting nor is the photo very flattering! Sorry! I wore my new Colette Hazel V1 (not yet blogged, but worn twice in May) out to dinner that evening in Santa Fe, but neglected to take a photo. 

Shirt: Alabama Chanin Fitted Tank V3
Jeans: Same as above

Worn for a casual Saturday of sewing (see tomorrow's outfit!), house cleaning, and hanging out with some friends. It fit the bill! I look strangely cranky here- chalk that one up to my growing impatience with taking self timer iphone photos.

Dress: Newly made Butterick 4790

Umm... yes I do wear my flip flops everyday, thankyouverymuch. In other news, NEW DRESS!!!! Yep, whipped this one up over the weekend. After my trip to Florida and then accommodating house guests all last week, I was having major withdrawal from my precious sewing machines. My preciouses!! I was so sad. So I got to work mid-afternoon on Saturday and had this just barely completed for a baby shower on Sunday afternoon. Like I was hand sewing the hem in the car on the way. Anyways, I think I love it. But note to self- do not wear double wrapped circle skirt in New Mexico in the spring. I might have flashed a lot of people the (me-made) shorts I was wearing underneath. I look cranky here too- but I promise that I was just drunk :) Yes, it was that kind of (co-ed) "baby shower".

Umm. P.S. I hate it when they update flickr. I think this new layout looks awful and I can't figure out where anything is. Ughh!


  1. Oooh, I like your new dress. I've heard mixed things about how well that pattern has worked, and I'm glad it came together so great for you! (And drunk baby showers should be the only kind!!) I dig both of your jeans outfits ... I need to make me some more Scouts.

    Oh and I hate the Flickr update too! At first I was all, "oooh, sexy" but then it takes me umpteen times longer to figure out how to do or find anything and it's just a pain.

  2. Glad you're back to playing with your preciouses. I'm loving your MMM outfits. Susan's right--that 4790 pattern gets really mixed reviews, but it's perfect on you. (I love mine too.) Hooray for drunken baby showers! :)

  3. You are the first person I have seen really carry off that wrap dress!
    And I too hate the new flickr. I can't even work out how to add photos to the flickr group!
