I missed last week’s MMM post, so this one is long. While I have enjoyed wearing me-made clothes this month, and have thought at great length about my wardrobe needs and sewing direction, I am kinda glad it’s over. It takes time in the morning that I consistently seem to lack.
This has been a mixed month for our home with horrible sickness, relatives almost dying and then being caught up in the Hastie Group collapse. Thankfully my husband has secured more work, but it has been a concerning week for money and work. Gosh it sucks being a grown up some times…
So the outfits.
Wednesday 16 May – Work
Thursday 17 May – Work
Colette Violet in Liberty – I think I may actually modify this blouse to get more wear from it. I adore the fabric, but I don’t think I’m comfortable in a peter pan collar.
Modified Simplicity 3850 trousers
Friday 18 May – Play
Saturday 19 May – Play
Sunday 20 May – Play
Monday 21 May – No Me Made photo.
Tuesday 22 May – Work
Darling Ranges Dress in Liberty Lantana
Don’t you love Adele’s nasty day care clothes? I made that scarf for her too, but can’t find the post.
Wednesday 23 May – Play. Ollie’s sports carnival.
I was a time keeper and wore green to support Ollie’s team. As I don’t like green, I had to borrow a t-shirt from a friend. This is Ollie coming 8th (aka last!) in the 100m dash.
Thursday 24 May – Play
Friday 25 May – Play
Self drafted jersey skirt.
Modified Renfrew in merino knit. This hasn’t been blogged, but I don’t know if I have much more to say about this pattern, except that I’m happy.
Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May – Stress and play. Husband worked and I parented solo. Not sure what I wore.
Monday 28 May – work
Tuesday 29 May – Work
Belle Bow Blouse
Modified Op Shop skirt
Wednesday 30 May – Work
Thursday 31 May – Work
So there it is. Almost a whole month of me made garments. Seriously though, I almost exclusively own self made garments these days. Maybe next year I’ll try to only wear me made garments, rather than only one per day. he he – yeah right!
Looking forward to winter tomorrow!
