MMJ3 – You’re Not Going To Undress Me, Are You?

You didn’t think I’d leave Walthamstow market out of the Me Made challenge, did you?

This is my favourite market stall holder – a cheeky chappy, who calls out his wares come rain or shine, 365 days a year or so it seems. I told him he was my favourite. ‘You should try spending more time with him!’ his colleague spluttered. As I left, he threw a final joking question my way: ‘You’re not going to undress me, are you?’

Er, no.

I’m wearing the B5600 dress, perfect for a day working from home. This outfit is soooo easy to wear – slip it on, add a belt and you’re done. You can be dressed and at your desk in two minutes flat.

In my original blog on this dress, I said I’d wear it a few times to see how I get on with the buttons. On a second make I’d rearrange them and add a few more. The dress is fine for slouching around in, but I feel self-conscious on the tube and in meetings – any situation where I have to sit straight and be scrutinised. I find myself constantly checking that an unfortunate gape isn’t revealing too much.

Otherwise, I’m a big fan of this dress. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

    I really, really love your me-made pictures. so much fun.
    I have made this dress too and am also worried about the strain on that bottom button, and the slit bothers me. I want to make another one, but I think i will sew up at least 1/3 of the front opening, so the last few buttons will only be ‘decorative’.
    After seeing yours, i really want to make a yellow and red one.

    That fabric is so pretty and perfectly summery!
    (P.S. Love that all your photos show you out and about in London – I’m moving there next month so it’s like getting a wee advanced tour:))

    I really like your blog, but for some reason (possibly that I am an idiot where computers are concerned) I can’t find the RSS feed.

    Fab dress and fab photo. Your splendid geezer subject looks like a cross between Big Ron and Phil Mitchell, maybe he’s called Big Phil? x
