MMM Day 6

New Look 6875 is one of those garments I only wear during a Me-Made month.  If I made more loungewear, I’d probably get rid of it.  Not only is the top unflattering to a top-heavy figure, the fabric is a poly knit and very warm in the summer time.  I’m still feeling sick and not wanting to dress up.  It’s funny how just the addition of tights or stockings makes an outfit feel more dressed up.  All summer long, I wear dresses and skirts every day, but not in the cooler months.  Over-the-knee socks are a great compromise, warmer and more comfortable, but I only own a couple pairs.  I see a goal for this season: make more casual knit tops.
