On 16 May, I wore:
Top: my new Colette Sorbetto!
I decided to revisit the Colette Sorbetto for a quick make to help get over the Violet-fail glums.
I made a few mods: I removed the pleat and added sleeves (which I lengthened by 1.5"). I also used a different method for the neck binding, because I didn't want to make a feature of it. So it's basically a woven tee.
|here's a little close up of the neckline - the binding is folded back|
On 19 May, I wore:
Top: Me-made Wiksten Tova
Trews: Gap Khakis
Shoes: Clarks Originals
It was warm enough to bare my ankles yesterday. Too too thrilling! I spent the day outdoors in the gorgeous Kent countryside, visiting Lullingstone Castle. Naturally, I totally forgot to pack my camera. But if you fancy popping along to a very lovely little old castle in Kent, I highly recommend Lullingstone, where the Hart Dyke family who've owned the castle since the 1300s run the place (Mr Hart Dyke told us to "hurry along girls, or you'll miss all the fun" as we arrived). And the cake in the refreshment tent is too yummy. There's nothing more beautiful than the English countryside in Spring - I came home totally re-energised, and full of good clean air. hoorah!
On 20 May, I wore:
Top: me-made Wiksten Tank
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity
Accessory: Mum's ridiculous poodle, Mika (though that's too ridiculous a name for a dog, so I call him Michael)
Isn't this exciting - a new backdrop for the photo! My parents insisted on having a BBQ today, even though it was about 12C and very grey. The top is one of three I made in March - like the other two, I used 1m of Liberty lawn. You can't see the print very clearly, but it's brilliant - lots of different animal silhouettes in shades of grey on a black and white background (it reminds me a bit of Karen's dino print skirt). I should have taken a close up, but if you are interested, here's the same print in a different colourway (source: Shaukat).
Just a week and a half of MMM'12 left! I might have to start repeating me-mades, unless the sun comes out!
