Me-Made-May'14 #1 Comfy sunday
So this is me finally with a photo of myself wearing a (partly) Me-Made-Outfit (and hoping to be much more relaxed being photographed in the future).
This was actually the first dress I made during a workshop at the Etsy Labs in Berlin, the workshop was held by Sarah from Stoffe Meyer back in 2011. The fabric was a super cheap last minute buy - especially for this occasion. ( I just started sewing clothes for myself and mostly had printed Quilting Cottons in my stash.) The funny thing is that the fabric once had a dark navy colour but it started rubbing off immediately while sewing and left my fingers blue and even the sewing machines were stained. So lesson learned! Never buying low quality fabric again and always prewash first.
But despite the now bleached out fabric I actually wear it a lot- so much that it already started to fall apart. Because of its loose fit it is perfect for those days when you just want something cosy to pair with a cardigan and some tights. Now that I finally started sewing knits I plan to make a lot of Cocos and Monetas. To have a lot of comfy, yet chic dresses for days I don't want to think a lot of what to wear.
