So many questions, so little time. Let’s begin.
Did you catch the name of the strangers in today’s photo, Karen?
Are you kidding? When you spontaneously gatecrash a steel drum band parade on the South Bank of London, do you think there’s time for polite introductions?
But these strangers know they’re appearing on your sewing blog, right?
What part of ‘I didn’t have time to explain’ do you not understand?
Okay, okay! Jeez, from the photos I thought you were in a good mood. Moving on. Why do you feel the need to point your fingers in two different directions when dancing? Is this some type of Dad dancing for Sewists?
Sigh. Did I say I was auditioning for Strictly Come Dancing? Can I control the way the spirit moves me? This is free form in a self made skirt! The SKIRT, remember?
Oh yeah. What’s your Me Made item today?
There are two, actually. The skirt is a very early make based on Gertie’s Gathered Skirt tutorial. An old but faithful make in black raw silk with a pink ribbon trim on the waistband. Okay, okay, the trim’s there to hide some mistakes. So shoot me! I find this skirt works excellently with silks or taffetas, but thick cottons…? Forget it.
I’m also wearing my Tilly necklace. I love Tilly!
[Whispered] I bet Tilly can dance better than you.
What was that?!
Nothing, nothing. Okay, I have another question. I don’t quite know how to put this. What’s that big furry thing in front of your groin?
This is all one big joke to you, isn’t it? If you can’t take Me Made June seriously, why don’t you go and read some other blog? But since you ask, I believe that is the top of a child’s head.
Thank you, Karen. I have nothing left to ask, except… Can you lend me a fiver?
Why, you little…
I’m sorry, readers. I’ve had to delete the rest of this interview because of stringent broadcasting codes. Plus, I don’t want you to know what I did with the body.
Just kidding!!!! Isn’t today lovely? The sun’s come back to play – just about. Here’s a slightly more composed photo of today’s outfit, by one of the glorious beach huts that currently stand outside the Royal Festival Hall beside the Thames:
What a day to be happy! It felt so very apt when I noticed the below lying in the street on my way to the tube station this morning. I just had to photograph it:
