Day 3, and an inventory
For day 3 of Me-Made May lite, I wore my ginko-leaf print refashioned dress. More about that here. It was cooler than Sunday, but still a bit warm...and yet, very cold and air-conditioned in the lab. So this is not exactly how I wore the outfit to work; add a cardigan and some footless tights. But by the time I got home, it was MUCH too warm for those. I look so sleepy and overheated in these pictures...
Also, I wanted to actually do an inventory of what I have that counts as me-made or refashioned. A bit less than I thought, implying the need for a few more refashions/makings in my immediate future!
7 dresses, two me-made (the solid blue and the strawberry print) and the rest refashioned.
7 skirts, three me-made (white lace, purple flower print, white with embroidery) and the rest refashioned.
1 top, me-made (my own pattern, but the fabric used to be a skirt...so I guess this could count as a refashion too!)
I also have a pair of booties that used to be boots, and a whole bunch of jewelry that I've made. Accessories may have to get me through days like today, when we have important lab visitors and I need to look dressy-ish.
