A measly 1 colour from my palette! I really think this purple needs to be added though, because I own an awful lot of RTW tops in this shade!
MM STyle Arc Jeans, cropped out, and appliqued Echino birds on the hoodie.
3/9 wardrobe palette colours.
MM flannel scout tee and McCalls cardigan, blogged here.
It snowed ALL DAY! WTF, Canada? It’s May! This was Mother’s Day, so I spent 2 hours each way driving to see my mother-in-law. (And somehow, I just happened to find myself in a fabric store on the way home! 😉
4/9 colours. MM Tiramisu dress, blogged here.
This dress is so comfy! It’s a drapy rayon knit, which means that the self-drafted a-line skirt hangs quite close… but it feels comfier than pyjamas!

Oh, as as an added MMM bonus, my sister just spent 3 days at a conference and happened to wear made-by-me clothes for every day! I’m so excited that she actually wears that things I make… certainly motivates me to make her more! And we’ve cut a deal for her to knit me a cowl for the fall – sweet!
(She is very kindly letting me share her very-early-morning selfies!)
Recognise the green skirt that I wore last week and then promptly gave away? Turns out it’s a much better match for her wardrobe colours, which are slightly warmer than mine… (Those are knitting inspiration pics, BTW…)
So my new goal? Wear an outfit with 5 colours! I’ve had a couple of 4-colour outfits… which makes sense, because I tend to wear either warm or cool tones with a neutral, but not warm and cool at once. Can you picture any 5 of these colours together? Let me know what you think might work!
