Halfway through the day today I realized that I had made my entire outfit. How awesome is that? I really wanted to bust out a little happy dance in the middle of my lab, but thankfully I managed to restrain myself… and wound up doing it in the bathroom instead. : )
I wore my burgundy V-neck Renfrew with my navy Beignet and cream sash, along with an infinity scarf I crocheted last winter out of some awesome Manos (unblogged) and my blue and white handmade earrings. I knew when I got dressed in the morning that I was wearing a me-made top and skirt, but I had totally forgotten about the scarf and earrings. What a nice surprise!
A few weeks ago I talked about working on my everyday wardrobe and being more thoughtful about the garments I choose to sew, and slowly but surely, it’s all starting to come together. Granted, my outfit today is pretty similar to the one I wore on Tuesday, since I tend to make multiples of the same patterns. But you get the idea. Handmade multiples are still better than RTW, right?
Fun fact: I wore this outfit to work all day, came home, changed, ate dinner, and settled in for the night… and then decided I really wanted a picture after all. So I dug it all out of the laundry and got dressed again, at 10 pm, just for you. You’re welcome. And my face is totally covered in zit cream. : )
