MMM Week 1 complete
This week's Me-Made-May Round-up...
It was still quite cool here in Munich so I layered this hand-knitted lace hoodie (Apres Surf Hoodie by Connie Chang Chinchio) with this sewn skirt from 2011.
I happened to be traveling to London for a day, and what a change in the weather for me. Who would have thought London would be so beautifully warm and sunny! Well, I soaked in every drop I could and wore a hand-knitted pullover (heavily modified Kim Hargreaves pattern from "Precious").
I'm back and ready to rumble. New haircut, hand-knit lace headband of my own design (self published pattern), and up-cycled top. I bought this top from a fellow student when I was at RISD. She had the clever idea to sew a patch of cute buttons on one corner, and I bought it off of her at one of the student sales. The vintage cardigan (my great aunt's) managed to cover the cutie-patootie buttons. I find self-portraits so challenging without the tripod, but since these photos are nearly daily I just didn't have the urge to set up all my gear. So, these photos don't show that I'm wearing cut-offs that I did myself from a pair of jeans whose knees had worn too thin.
That's MMM week 1 wrap up!
