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!
