Me-Made-May Weekend

Still going strong with the #MMM15 challenge! Saturday, I attended a going away party in Brooklyn at Spritzenhaus. It was finally one of those gorgeous Spring days that almost required a dress so I wore my favorite pink strapless one.

I’ve got tan lines for dayyyyss.

No photos of the dress from Sunday but I’m sure I’ll wear it again during May.

Today’s wrap skirt is a small black daisy striped cotton blend that feels closer to silk. I didn’t have that much fabric to work with at the start, so to keep it at a modest length, i did a rolling hem. I saved a few precious inches that would’ve made the skirt otherwise unwearable.

Weird side view for the wrap slit.

Sitting down photo. It kinda rides up so it’s a little risky.

Close up of rolling hem. Thank goodness my machine can do this. I really wanted to use the fabric for something.

I’m also just realizing I could’ve used it as a contrast with another fabric, but I digress.
