Me Made May Monday – Barcelona Skirt

I think its a bit spooky that I own a skirt that’s almost exactly the same colour as my kitchen cabinets, but I take some comfort from knowing the skirt came first.

This is not the garment I should be showing off for my fourth Me-Made-May-Monday, it SHOULD have been a McCalls tunic top, but I’ve reached a small bump in the road of its production, so it’s going to be a little while before it’s finished… Alarmingly the fabric of the tunic also matches the kitchen cabinets. What does this mean?

So, today’s MMMM item of clothing is an old make – in fact the first ever skirt I made back in Canada, with help from my lovely friend Fiona…. She and this skirt have a lot to answer for, they started me on a bit of a journey, a journey that lead to a wardrobe that matches my kitchen….

I love the skirt and the fabric!! I think the color being the same as the cabinets just means your taste is consistent! :-))Hope your week is off to a good start!!

Well I think the skirt is adorable! And lucky you, to have a perky blue kitchen! LOL

That colour is so gorgeous, I am not surprised that it is popping everywhere in your life.

Very nice! My momma has just started learning how to sew. She is having so much fun. She just made me a stuffie bone toy. I’m going to blog about it soon. Who knows what will be next- maybe an apron that matches the living room walls! =)
