|My new Christmas eve day outfit. yeah.|
I made this long, straight skirt earlier in the week and had material leftover. It's the last of the great corduroy fabric I scored recently. So I made up a tunic top from what was left along with some scraps from the skirt with big pockets and the top with changed neckline. Well, when I tried them both on together, it looked kinda kimono-esque, don't you think? The top also looked cute as a mini, if I dared, or as a tunic over other stuff. It has pockets too, see em?
More pics after the break...

Oh, and remember my last project with the painted canvas poncho of Banksy's rat?...
|that circle I cut out of the center to fit my head through...|
I saved it of course, and was fooling around with it, wondering what I might do with it, when suddenly...
as I was fiddling with it, there was a Megan Mae-type flower in my hand!?! Well, what was I to do, but search for that special gold-white metal button I've been saving all these years for who-knows-what? I sewed it on and thereby came to make my homage to Megan Mae button pin.
|Voila! waste not, want not, and all that|
Please don't be alarmed Megan, it's a tribute to you and not a deliberate steal (like they do in the art world)! Actually it was an accident, that just happens when you play with round things and symmetry. I spent a year doing mandalas every day which also included folding 3-dimensional ones, so I've come up with many variations. You can see them all on my mandala-a-day blog.
I'll be posting images of the pieces I'm wearing today on the Clothes for Winter page as soon as I take their pictures. Meanwhile, Patti's taking the day off at Not Dead Yet Style, but I'm still joining the crowd at Monday Mingle.
Encore! Cheers to One and All!
