Starting MMM14: Synchronised Swimmer Blouse

It’s May already in my part of the world (although it’s still the middle of the night and I have not dressed yet) but I thought I would like to get May off to a good me-made start by showing you the blouse that makes me happy by even looking at it:

Look at the synchronised swimmers:

IMG_7699Isn’t that the most joyful thing in the world?

IMG_7693They ladies are very active in the back as well πŸ™‚

IMG_7694The pattern is Burdastyle 5/2014 #131. It’s really easy to make and a good fit in principle, although I need to fiddle a bit with the neckline: it’s a little low and gapes a bit, but not indecently so, so I am very happy to wear the blouse.

Still have not decided what to wear tomorrow for the real start of MMM14 – update to follow, of course.

What are you wearing for the beginning of May?

    Ooooh! I need to plan! πŸ™‚

    I think I will start with my favorite shirt and cardigan.

    And OBVIOUSLY, your lady swimmers are fabulous πŸ˜€

    Love it! I’m already decked out in a ByHand Charlotte skirt. Think my ‘plan’ is going to have to be wearing my creations as creatively as possible as I don’t have that many πŸ™‚ Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s choices.
