Do ‘me-mades’ work for work?

Do you wear your ‘me-mades’ to work? What makes something ok for work at your place? Is it the styling and shapes? How much does colour matter?

I was given some gorgeous Babbarra Designs fabric from my good friends at Nomad Art. I’ve used some of it to make a pencil skirt.

I think being a pencil skirt makes it ok for work, even if the pattern is unusual. I love the vibrant green and the design is very beautiful. I think it pairs well with black or white. It’s is a hard-wearing cotton drill, that looks to be dyed in lovely blues and greens before being screen-printed.

I made a high waisted pencil skirt. At the apex of the vent I put a covered button, because it looks good, but also to strengthen the vent.

    • Thanks for stopping by. Yep I’m at work 5 days a week too, more and more I only wear what I make. I wouldn’t wear sleeveless, even when I lived in Darwin. So you need to wear trousers? I haven’t attempted trousers yet.
