Week 4| MMMar'11

Almost There!

Monday, March 21: Dress of Many Colours
Ah, my technicolour dreamdress, how I love thee. This dress makes me SO happy, but it's too cold to wear alone this time of year. The purple cardi (a gift from my BFF) is the perfect topper!
  • Kalediscope dress: S2550
  • Necklace: Made by Me!
  • Purple Cardi: Gifted, Lane Bryant

Tuesday, March 22: My Life is a Tapestry
I made this jacket in the Fit for Real People pattern adjustment class I took at FabDepot two years ago. I'd always wanted a jacket made from home dec fabric, and I love the way it fits me so perfectly.

  • Jacket: S2858
  • Necklace: Made by me, based on this one from Sundance
  • Cuff Bracelet: Made by me
  • Trousers: CAbi
  • Tank: NY&Co.

Wednesday, March 23: Swirly Whirl Top
Boatneck tops are SO hard to get right and this one is no exception. I love a good boatneck, but I HATE how my brastraps can't stay hidden. One of my projects for spring is to make a wearable knit boatneck top that hides my straps, includes bust darts, and has enough shaping so that I don't look like a rectangle. Yikes! This top's headed for a refashion. Away foul top!
  • Groovie top: NL6838
  • Black Trousers: NY&Co. 

Thursday, March 3: A Case of Stripes Dress
This is probably my favourite dress that I made last year. It's flattering and comfortable and has some shape to it, It's too cold to wear it alone, so I've got a black wrap stashed in my purse.
  • Dress: V8553
  • Necklace: Altered by me from a necklace I bought in Italy
  • Obi: Purchased in Italy 

Friday, March 25: Purple People Eater Sweater
This is probably the coziest sweater I own. It's made from the purple alpaca I brought back from Italy. If I'm having a particularly blue day, I put it on and WHAMMO, the day is better. Who could ask for more?
  • Sweater: V8634
  • Jeans: Land's End 
  • Necklace: NY&Co.


  1. I've enjoyed following along your MMMarch. You've made some lovely clothes.

  2. I think I recognise that purple top; is that the one you were wearing in the airport?

    And I love your favourite dress too! Those random stripes are gorgeous!

  3. I love your favorite dress as well.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog post about my pregnancy.
