How visible are you?

I recently discovered a new (to me) blog Not Dead Yet Style, catchy name no? I have enjoyed reading it so I decided to participate in Visible Monday.

The dress above I made last summer and I love it. I have always loved red (and orange as well) and while I feel very visible in this color, I also feel very me when wearing it. How many things stay constant through the years? not many.

My first thought when I started to write this post is that as sewers, knitters/crocheters of garments we want to be noticed, but always in a good way! We are proud of producing one of a kind and well fitted garments. I enjoyed the creative process and everything in between that leads to a garment I can be proud to wear and say "I made it!" if complemented on it.

How do you feel visible?


  1. Lisette, that is a lovely dress, and yes you are very visible! I love what you wrote about how creators of garments are making one-of-a-kind pieces. This one suits you so well. Thank you for participating in Visible Monday!

  2. That dress is gorgeous! My sewing skills are slightly limited. My thrifting skills are awesome.
    Nice to meet you!

  3. I really love the red maxi dress. So pretty!

  4. You are so right .... sewers, drains, sew to make us notice our garments made with our hands. So you are wonderfully visible in this post! With a wonderful dress sewn with your hands!

  5. I just pop on my new burnt orange business skirt and merino cardigan. A colleague (female) suitably attired in greys described the outfit as "brave". Not sure if that was a compliment but the beauty of being 53 and not 33 is that I no longer care. I feel good and that is all that counts. BTW - your red dress is luscious.

  6. A beautiful dress and you look great in this shade of red.
    i also love red and I also enjoy the creativity of making things (clothes) by myself as you do, but mostly the first step when planning the "future" for a piece of fabric and then when I already have the ready garment. And beeing prooud of your creative job is absolutely your right:-)


I love hearing from you!
