Miyake on My Mind

And now on my body!

~ Vogue 1544, Issey Miyake shirt pattern ~

Man, his designs always blow me away, they are so amazingly put together.  Pure genius.  Of course it takes me a few weeks to make one, since I've never sewn anything like them.  And each one is a totally different animal.


~ made from "ice blue" linen ~


~ I used some scrap white embroidered linen for the insert ~

Hey, you can see my True Love taking the pix in the window reflection!



~ awww, little sea shell buttons ~


~ I know, you're thinking it looks like a night shirt ~



~ but really, there's all these amazing details ~


Like the back center hem buttons up to the front center hem, forming a pant like structure.  Yeah.  That's how I'm wearing it for the pix.  And it hangs beautifully.



~ shoes from the ole ebay ~


I'll be heading on over to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie's Shoe and Tell when they all go live.  Come on by.

I also have to get caught up on my MeMadeMay'17 page and pinterest board.  Yikes.  I'm getting on it.

Clothes with a View

Everyday it's something new.

~ Like today's view from my front porch ~

Let me take you on a tour.


~ First up, the dumpster than appeared smack in front of our house one day ~

and then stayed for two weeks, so far.


~ then the day-glo, spray-painted writing on the sidewalk arrived ~

All I can decipher is the OK and the arrows bracketing it going in opposite directions.  This appeared between the dumpster parked on the street and our front door.


~ The piece de resistance is across the street ~

Has been there for days.  ...body bags?

Am I the only normal thing in the neighborhood these days?

I mean, let's look at this scene again, all right in front of my front door.

~ Is there a message here? ~

nah, I didn't think so either, but it was a great backdrop for my screaming coral colored clothes.

~ Tina Givens Greta Dress and Pants pattern ~


~ Trippen Vivienne shoes from ebay ~


Speaking of which, I'll be trippin' on over to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie's Shoe and Tell when they all go live.   See you there.

Still hanging in there photo-ing daily on my MeMadeMay'17 page and pinterest board.  Check it all out.

Me Made May '17


I finally committed to it.  After all, I only wear my handmade clothes as it is.  The clincher was you don't have to document daily wearing of them.  Yea, I could see that. Not


~ All Me Made ~


I mean, it would be nice, but...



~ ooo, onslaught of the seedlings ~

you know I barely get photographs done once a week month! 



~ So here I am on a beautiful day in the neighborhood, etc. ~



I made this top thingy to go over the other Sam Dress, but evidently it decided this Sam Dress was the one.

~ don't get dizzy ~


The top is from McCall's 7416, but the back is what I find interesting, and then I modified it a bit.

~ see?  so weird ~




~ ta, for now ~




~ oh, and les shoes from ebay ~




me made details:


With that I'll be joining up with Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, Cherie's Shoe and Tell, and Judith the Style Crone's Hat Attack.  And of course, there's Me Made May '17 for the next 30 days!
