|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. And now I've just linked up to Anne's 52 Pick-Me-Up: Go Geometrical
Encore! Cheers to One and All!
