It was the third work day for me, and the third new outfit.
Conversation with the executive assistant over morning coffee:
She: "Oh, another one? I hate you. Love the color"
Me: "thanks, I think. It was pretty easy"
She: "Seriously? Just once I would love to hear you say 'Target, sale rack' like most people"
"Because then I could swing over to Target and grab one, or we could at least go shopping together. Now you've go your own little clothing island going on and nobody's invited." "The rest of us just sail by on the department store ferry and wave at you and your perfect fitting clothes."
The coffee was done, she rolled her eyes and went back to her office (desperately crying out for and FBA and a shorter hem).
Its easy to feel like the weird little 4H kid in 4rth grade when you grow up in home-made clothes. Aren't we trained to just say thank you instead of admitting that we made it, by hand, and we loved every minute. What do you say when someone asks you where you got that dress?

I'm also rethinking my choice in coffee cups, as pictures on the right:
Either way, I'll keep sewing, wearing my sewing and bragging about it.
Maybe I'll stop walking around with the cup so much, but I'm keeping it!
What do you say when someone asks you where you got something that you made? Do you dodge the question? Do you lie?
Love the simple top. I could have bought it at Target, but then it wouldn't be out of this stretch silk. Its really awesome. OK, I made it for comfort, not flattery or figure disguising curves and I nailed it!
One thing I gained from Me-Made-May Flicker photo group is that I need more casual, weekend clothes and this is a great addition.
