Whis meant by the phrase: "make oneself of motley to the view"?

Hi,

I recently came across the following phrase “make oneself of motley to the view”, but I’m not sure what it means. I look forward to your feedback.

The question should read "What is meant by the phrase : “make oneself of motley to the view”. Please excuse the typo.

Most likely a reference to a line from one of Shakespeare’s sonnets, which includes the line “And made my self a motley to the view.” Basically, it means to have made a spectacle or fool of oneself. Here’s the poem, for context, along with some analysis.

Thank you Lacunae Matata.
