For #MMM2019 Day 5, I'm ticking all the boxes! Refashioning a previous make. Putting my umpteenth Morris blazer to good use, AND rocking an awesome Roo and Bentie MADE t-shirt!
|I made this dress a couple of years ago when I first really started sewing. It wasn't constructed terribly well. Something was always 'off' about the back AND I made it from quilting cotton, so it was a bit stiff. Despite getting compliments on it when I wore it, I didn't reach for it very often. So ~ I decided it would make a great little play skirt. I whacked it in half. Attached a contoured waist band from a pattern I made for myself (resource and story of its creation here). BAM!!!|
|Perfection!! I have lots of tops and sweaters that I can pair it with, but I love it with this amazing Tee Roo and B made me for my 50th Birthday!|
|Roo's poetry has touched my heart in many ways, the dragonfly is only one! Check out this post for her beautiful words: Ratties and Hope! And this one to see how far B will go to honor the dragonfly: Lucky Bugs!|
|I love my outfit, my amazing supportive peeps, and my crazy photog!!!|
