Happy Friday everyone! This week of MMM carried me through the Bay Area Sewists Meetup, Bay to Breakers (SF's infamous race and party parade), my little brother's graduation from Cal, and a long week at work complete with fieldwork in Stockton and Sonoma. Whew!
For the uninitiated, Bay to Breakers is not only one of the country's oldest foot races, but it is also a classic San Francisco event, complete with naked runners, elaborate costumes, and more than a few brown bags. In this spirit, every year my friend and I enjoy coming up with new costumes that both shock and entertain. This is usually followed by some sewing from yours truly, and I count it every year as my me-made for the day. This year, we wore our muumuus and did some flashing, complete with home-made merkins using Ohhh Lulu's Ginger pattern (sorry Sarah, it was just too perfect!). Even Mr. Made got his own pair from a Jalie boxer pattern. It was a crowd-pleaser for sure.
Apologies if my pictures have offended the more refined sensibilities among us, but I know the rest of you appreciate a good laugh!
