MMJ Day 7: Hot, hazy & humid


Yep, the three dreaded words for summer weather in T.O.  36C and humid humid humid, thanks to a roaring thunderstorm that went through at 4:30 a.m.  Just a quick post before I live the exact opposite of my official title, that being SAHM!  Smile

Outfit:  Vogue 2902 in a printed voile with espresso linen trim.  Shoes by Remix Vintage Shoes from Original on Queen Street West

Activities:  touring a new school for DD2, as she’ll be starting Grade 6 next year; running DD1 to the dentist for her first ever filling and tooth pulling; taxi service for all dear daughters to dance classes

MMJ 7 2Thoughts:  I don’t usually wear this dress with a belt, but maybe I should.  I love the big circle skirt.  Every time I wear this dress it reminds me of why I like to wear dresses so much.  Living in a circle skirt is a lot of fun.  I had to grade the bodice down a size, since I’d purchased the wrong size pattern for some reason, and then do the requisite FBA.  The waist sits a little above my natural waist, which feels odd – almost as if the vintage undergarments are missing or something along those lines.

  1. Hello Mezzo Couture,
    I just found your blog – it is always excellent to find a new sewing blog, especially by a fellow Canadian! You do lovely work and I’m going to enjoy following your couture projects.

    1. I’m so glad to “meet” you, Gaileen! It’s always good to meet fellow Canadian sewers. I know there’s lots of us around, so thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself!
