(Wearing Colette Peony dress made in fabrics from Alexander Henry’s Larkspur line. Bonus: There’s a wild bunny somewhere on the lawn behind me!)

Now, if you are going to remember a new word, it’s always good to use it right away… so I dare you to say “Konnichiwa” in the comments!
In non-MMM news, I bought and downloaded the Pattern Runway Kimono pattern yesterday… and it turns out that while my bodice fits the biggest size, my hips and waist are 4 inches too big for the Large! Seriously guys, I’m not tiny, but neither am I giant. Maybe they could have made an XL as well as an XS and XXS? I can adapt the pattern easily, but I feel like I shouldn’t have to!
