Did you proudly wear something that you made this past week? I hope so!!!
I actually wore the outfit that I'm posting today, today, so it really is a Me Made Monday item this week. As I told you last week, I'm the social chairman for a group here in Chicago called The Musicians Club of Women. It's a very old organization and it was formed to give women a place to perform as it wasn't acceptable for women to perform in public when the organization was initially started. We have truly come a long way!! Thankfully. I usually end up doing a lot of running around, so I want to look nice, but I also need to be comfortable. I was especially tired this morning, so I chose something that didn't take a lot of effort.
The pleat runs from the waist to the hem.
The pleat was left open at the bottom.
There's a zipper inside the pleat at the waistline. To hold the pleats closed, I inserted grommets and added a lace tie. Look closely and you can see that my butterfly is not matched perfectly!!!! What kind of seamstress am I?!!! :-)
The fabric is called Gothic Prairie. Take a look and you'll see thistles, Queen Anne's Lace, spiders and moths that are all typical of the prairie.
