Me made yay!

Do you recall back to the start of the year when I promised myself I would participate in Me Made May?

Well it's confirmed for another year! So that means for the month of May I will make an effort to wear my me made garments according to a little rule that I get to set for myself

I already wear my handmade stuff pretty often, so I decided to challenge myself to wear something handmade every work day and weekends are optional - depending on what I'm doing that day, though I totally could do it on the weekends too really easily.

New Penzance Island - Style 2475

Here’s a little tid bit about me. I love Wes Anderson. I love his movies and TV commercials. I could watch The Darjeeling Limited over and over and when I'm in a sooky mood, Fantastic Mr Fox cheers me up. But none of his movies have inspired me fashion wise since The Royal Tenenbaums until Moonlight kingdom

Suzy Bishop – the young heroine of the movie has a pretty enviable set of outfits. The wardrobe was put together by Kasia Walicka Maimone who was interviewed in the Lula Issue 16 (where she talked about working with Wes and making the costumes for the movie)

Also did I mention the whole movie is set in the 60s? (whoo hoo!)

So of course I couldn't help myself but sew up my own version of Suzy’s yellow mini dress. She wears this at the end of the movie while Sam paints and her brothers listen their record. Suzy's appears to be made in yellow broderie anglaise
