Yea for Fall Layers

~ It feels good ~

~ Just relaxing into it ~

~ the side view ~

I'm wearing all stuff I've made awhile ago.  But never worn altogether before.  The hat is hand sewn from old t-shirts and seed beads a la Alabama Chanin. I've made at least 2 so far.  The beautiful scarf was given to me from a friend via the Salvation Army.  And the sunglasses are from the $ store.

The coat is from The Sewing Workshop Thai Coat pattern made in black and gold brocade.  It's the second one I've made.

The overdress is from The Sewing Workshop, the Verenda Dress, much modified and made in a scuba knit print.  The underdress is from Tina Givens Sam Dress pattern, much modified, made in striped georgette.  Also the second one made.

~ I made it so I can wear it backwards or frontwards ~

~ with my lovely shoes from ebay ~

And that's a wrap.  I'll be linking up with Patti and the Visibles when she goes live at Not Dead Yet Style.  And Catherine at I Will Wear What I Like.  Also Judith's Hat Attack for October.  Hope to see you there!

Is It Black or Is It Blue Now?

~ you know,  ~

~ Wearing this reminds me of that quote. ~

I discovered the top and matching pants in the deep recesses of the archive, tried it on and it fit.  It's made out of a dark midnight navy faux suede fabric.  I cannot for the life of me remember making it, much less wearing it.  It's so, so, ultra plain, minimal even.  Because of how small it is, it must be over 30 years old.

~ it's an utter mystery ~

I dashed of the mesh damask lace under shirt to wear with it cuz it was just too darn odd without it.  I left the little toggle unbuttoned at the mandarin collar neckline to expose some lace.  And added a small antique brooch.   I didn't want to over do it either.

I'm sure if I wore it as it was you wouldn't have recognized me at all.

I'll be joining Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style and Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when the time is right.  Come on by.
