Day 8 (AKA Saturday) was a crazy and awesome day. I participated in a pin-up style photo shoot that formed the backbone of a creative project I've been working on with some friends. My day started early (before my Official Me-Made-May Photographer had got out of bed) and finished, well it finished by blending into the early hours of the following day, so no usual documentation pap was taken. But due to the fact that the fruits of my sewing machine were the focus of the shoot, you can be assured that I only wore me-made garms, in fact I think I and the other two models between us wore most of my me-made wardrobe at some point that day! I will of course display the official final outcomes as soon as I can, but in the mean time, check out the photo above of the crew that made it happen.
The after drinks were undertaken in me-mades, naturally (oh look! It's Matty and Patty again! They are fast becoming Me-May-Mascots, aren't they?!):
Day 9 comprised of a well needed lazy day. In fact I didn't leave the flat once. A few years ago I would have been disgusted at myself for such an omission! I guess these days I've got enough creative irons in the fire that I can view having a rest as part of the process. Actually I got loads of stuff done on Sunday, including serious headway on another endeavour that hopefully I will be able to disclose soon. Anyways, here's what I wore:
Me-made sailor trousers, stripey T-shirt, vest and pants. No need for shoes! Love it.
How have we got to Day 10 already? Jeez, this month is whizzing by!:
Me-made dress and pants (the leopard coat also got a look in when I went to work). I look like I'm really annoying to talk to in this photo! Now, I don't want to speak too soon, but I think the rain may have finally buggered off. The weather has definately been hotting up over the last few days. I thought I'd take one of the last opportunities to wear opaque tights, which I feel this dress needs. Funny isn't it how I disliked this dress as soon as I finished it because of the hassle the pattern brought? I don't normally wear dresses because I assume they take extra effort to carry off, when in fact they take less effort all round as you don't need to figure out what goes with what. Chuck it on and BANG! Who knew?! (Umm, pretty much everyone else, Zo.)
