Me-Made May 2014 Day 10 turned out to be a beautiful day! Mother's Day flowers in the morning, then the farmer's market on our bikes, then to a yard sale where I scored some pretty fabrics. After that, we spent a relaxed afternoon at home...me, sewing and chatting with my sister, and the boys playing with the fun mechanical/scientific games they'd scored at the yard sale ;). Now, I'm looking forward to an evening with more of the same family time goodness...
After our ventures out on the bikes this morning, I came home and added a little something to my outfit to ensure that I was wearing a me-made piece today...this kimono/beach cover-up that I refashioned here.
I ended up tying the 'tails' together in the back so that I wouldn't get caught up on them as I moved around sewing and ironing and such...
It was the perfect piece to add a bit of interest to a basic t-shirt and (thrifted)shorts, and easy breezy for an afternoon of thunderstormy weather at home :). Thankfully, the storms were intermittent with bright sunshine in between so that I could grab a few photos.
P.S. Did you notice the bolt of fabric behind me??? Just one of my scores today :) I'll share them all later!
