Day 15 / Me-Made-May 2015 / Friday's Theme = Something Old

Me-Made-May's participants vote on what they want as Friday's themes, and this particular Friday was deemed 'something old'.  I feel like my verbena today......
....wearing my 'old', made in early 2013, very bright pink newlook 6108 top, with the also made in early 2013 newlook 6164 swing cardi.  The skirt was made mid-2013 and is my hardworking, much loved newlook 6192.  I've only been sewing garments for myself since February 2013 and feel like my 'style' has exponentially evolved from where I was back then.  I would not chose this cardi pattern for me today, as I look better (and feel better) in the unstructured cardi recently made from Yoshiko Tsukiori's book Happy Homemade Sewing Chic.  Colors..... oh my.... this pink is just so 'pink'.  The fabric itself is very soft, drapey and comfortable.... but the bright pink is so not 'me' as well as the ruffles.  I am not a ruffly person.  :)
And this pretty hen wanted in on the photography session enough to fly over the fence and walk up to join me.  She's back safely in her higher fenced-in coop area/yard.
Hope everyone is having a good day, wherever you may be!

  1. I agree! The simpler lines of what you've more recently been making show off your nice figure much better.

    1. Thank you Mama Pea! Years ago I used to wear structured suits..... then seemed to pair down to these types of unstructured/structured cardis.... and now enjoy the simpler design features and unfetteredness of Tsukiori's cardi.

  6. Your cardi and hot pink ruffles top look pretty good to me, but at the end of the day, it's how we feel in our clothes that matter. I completely understand, because that's the way I feel about some of my clothes, especially my handknits :)

  7. It's interesting how Me Made May always points out to me how old some of my clothes are and how much older than much of my RTW. Today I'm wearing a dress made in 2012. Perhaps that isn't so old, really, but in this day of fast fashion, it's older than usual. I think that is typical for many of us who sew our own clothes.
