Me Made May wasn’t too tough to complete as it was a short week.
Me-Mades: Aurora Borealis shirt, 2014. Made from the top portion of the dress pattern used here. Fabric from Jo-Ann’s. Unders, made from knit fabric scraps using Zoe’s free pattern. You really get the best, comfiest wedgie-free fit this way!
Als0 wearing: my new custom-made necklace by the very talented Sandy Buffie. Sandy has a jewelry and sculpture studio in the same artist’s building as I do. I gave her an Indian pendant that I have been carrying around for years, and two diamond-shaped beads, and she put it all together with some recycled silk sari strips and chain. It just happened to be done on the day I wore this shirt. Perfect, no?
Friday in the studio…can you tell that I’m exhausted?
Me-Mades: Silky roses blouse, ca. 2011. Pattern unknown. The fabric came in a bundle from the thrift store with half a pattern and one piece cut out. I drafted up the rest of the pattern and made facings and made it into a lovely shirt.
