So we are nearly at the end of Me Made May – phew! Here is a round up of what I wore this week.
Day 15- I wore a pink skirt which is recent make along with a hand knitted jumper (knitted by my nan not me!) This skirt is so indecently short that I am tempted to take it on holiday and then charity shop it.
Day 16- I was working from home (hence the headless shot) I wore a fabulous purple skirt with wooden buttons and great big pockets. Its such an easy wear, but not overly flattering. The pattern is a Tilly and the Buttons picnic blanket skirt that she blogged about years ago. You can find the pattern here.
Day 17- a trusty favourite of mine, a simplicity 1609. You all know how much I love this dress.
Day 18- This is a Simple Sew Bella dress that came free with a love sewing magazine. I made it in a really odd fabric, its a knit fabric, but feels like something a dressing gown would be made out of. I quite like it but I don’t think that the fabric will withstand much wearing.
Day 19- My stand out outfit this week. Sew Over it ultimate trousers paired with a Tilly Mimi blouse. I finished this top this week because I am really aware I need more tops in my handmade wardrobe.
Day 20- Although you can’t see the top half of this dress, it’s a bright red plain fabric with a patterned full circle skirt (Burda young 7556). I wore it with an Astoria jumper in a grey Ponte De Roma.
Day 21- Another Astoria in pink.
What did I learn this week? I’m starting to loose a it of enthusiasm for Me Made May,although my pledge is to wear one me made item each day, my pledge which I didn’t vocalise is that I wanted to wear something different every day. It makes it more tiring to choose what to wear each day, as I’ll often wear the same outfit 2 days in a row, so I’m putting in double the amount of effort getting dressed each morning. I also wanted to use Me Made May to rediscover some of my jewellery and wear it with new outfits, but apart from the first few days, this hasn’t really happened. As this is my first Me Made May pledge, I’m not beating myself up too much about it, and I’ll have something to aim for next year.
