I haven't posted my garments for a few days as I had a raging headache that really did me in for a couple of days. I did dress and I did get out, but only for what I really needed to do. The rules of Me Made May are to take a picture everyday, I did not, but I am going to recreate the outfits and be fine with it. I wore the clothes, I just didn't take the pictures on the days that I wore them.
This outfit I did wear today. The coat is not right with the dress, but I needed more than the shawl that I had planned to wear. It is soooo very cold in Chicago today. It's a very pretty day, just terribly cold. So as I ran out the door to go to church, I grabbed the coat, knowing that it really didn't work with the dress, but I decided to just own it and revel in the fact that I was warm. Man, pink shoes and an orange coat. Now that's a look!!!! Hey, I'm warm :-) I made this coat a number of years ago. It's from a Vogue pattern. It might still be in the catalogue, I'm just not sure. Actually, I just looked and it is not there. Too bad as it is a very nice pattern. The fabric was from a friend. It had actually belonged to her mother. I just love it. The flower pin on the collar I made from ribbon.here. I wore the dress with a big hat that was such fun to wear, not a miss matched coat like I did today!!
