Who:What:Wear 4

Last week Niecey-poo and I spent an afternoon at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Navy Pier.  I wore two of my me-made items:


Believe it or not, this was the first time I actually wore my Madeleine skirt!  I ended up really liking the fit of this skirt, and found it to be very comfy.  This picture was taken later in the afternoon, so it's already pretty wrinkled.

I also wore my bird-print Renfrew for the first time.  No twisting issues on this one, but I think it's a tiny bit large, due to the extreme drape of this fabric.  We'll see how it fares in the wash.

I'm also wearing my trusty Keen ballet flats and a vintage Vera scarf to hold back my hair, which you may notice is now about 4" shorter than it was a week ago.

I liked this outfit OK, but I don't think this is the perfect pairing for either of these items.  I did buy some navy and white striped jersey a few weeks ago, and once I'm able to get back to sewing, I'll make a Renfrew out of that.  Then I can make a nice nautical outfit - just in time for summer to be over!

  2. Add the navy and white striped shirt and it will be even better! that skirt does look really comfy, perhaps you were the only one wearing their very own made outfit in the museum (so neat!).

  5. Your color combo sez 'care-free'!!! And that's what your day sounds to me, one of those wonderful care free days when you're just out to enjoy yourself. It's refreshing!

    I know your skirt gives you that feeling.

    1. yes! ! ! with pockets.
      I wore those two skirt for as long as they could take it.
      They wrapped round enough not to be worrisome in a stiff breeze.
