Me Made Mondays at Frabjous Couture

Have you seen the new series that Marina of Frabjous Couture is doing? Rather than committing to an entire month of Me Mades, she has designated Monday, every day of the year as her Me Made day. And, what's even nicer is that she is inviting all of us to join her.  This week she posted this lovely sheath dress. Absolutely beautiful.
I participated in Me Made May two years ago and learned so much about myself and my wardrobe. I thought about participating again this year, but felt it was just adding one too many things to my plate. So when Marina posted that she would be hosting Me Made Mondays, without hesitation, I told her that I'm in!
This past Monday, I had a funeral to attend which explains the basically all black outfit. The dress is my design. I also made my accessories, not the necklace or the shoes. The hat is quite easy to do, just purchase a straw hat, cut off the brim and make a new brim. I can do a tutorial is anyone is interested.                      
    
The bag is one of my favorites. It's leather that has been upholstered.

If you've felt that an entire month of Me Mades is a little too much to do, give Marina's challenge a try and see how you do. I think you'll find it fun and rewarding and you may even learn a little something about your wardrobe.

    1. Hi Shelia, I was just going to say that I need to order a hat, but now that I think about it, I have one that could use a revamping. Stay tuned, the tutorial will be coming!
