Before the big Hong Kong trip, I managed to make a muumuu for those weekend evenings when loose and comfortable is mandatory. I used this great rayon knit I forgot I had here in UB. Exotic, no? Very godess-ish I think ;) Especially since I was so busy getting the neckline & yoke placed just so that I didn't think about the "wings" placed in a rather odd spot.
I used my TNT Simplicity 2852, just making it longer like I did for my muumuu stateside, seen here.
In fact, Kirsten Kimono Tees and Magic Pencil Skirts (find here) have become my uniform this summer. I feel comfortable and yet somewhat put together in this combo. Note: the armhole is not that low--I'm stupid sensitive about that. Guess my hand is pulling it down.
Yep, comfort is king these days. I've liberated myself of heels. Maybe a 2" at a formal. Or 1 1/2" on a Clark anything. One of my best ever decisions. Right up there with the one to quit coloring my hair.
