Day 14 - My Sewaholic Renfrew made from two fat quarters of Spoonflower knit, a men's mustard yellow tee from Goodwill and a coral Old Navy tee. You can see the original post about it here.
Day 15 - I wore my Vogue 1378 ponte pants. More details here. And some more pictures in this post as well.
Day 16 - This was a themed Friday over in the Flickr group and the theme was "Too Pretty To Wear Pants" after a commenter in a previous Me Made month made that comment about one of the participants. So it is a bit of an inside joke to the Me Made Flickr group. I wore a maxi dress made by altering McCalls 6559 a bit and carried my Gretelies Josipa bag. Dress blogged here.
and bag blogged here.
Day 18 - I carried my Josipa bag again today that you saw up there with my maxi dress and that is the only me-made I can claim for this day.
Random highlights of today -
I got two pairs of denim shorts at Old Navy today that I love the fit and the look of. When I can buy something I love for less than the cost of the materials to sew something similar (not to mention I am not even ready to sew jean shorts with rivets and such) I definitely have no regrets buying it. I am grateful for sales and getting two pairs of shorts for $25 makes me very happy.
We went to the High Museum of Art for a members only preview of their latest exhibit, Dream Cars, and saw the neatest thing!
It's a BMW concept car covered in fabric!
This concept car is covered in two layers of fabric stretched over an aluminum/carbon fiber frame. There is an under layer of wire mesh and an outer layer of polyurethane-coated lycra that is resistant to water, heat and cold. It was designed with customization of the shape of the car in mine, according to changing consumer desires.
I could see the stitches down the center of the hood. It was so cool.
Will a Spoonflower contest of the future be to design a the fabric to cover the exterior of a car?
