This was the Sunday of our May long-weekend ‘Victoria Day Weekend’ or more commonly known as May-24 where I’m from. I went to a party with my sister that day and I wore this bracelet!
I made this one over the winter when I was really getting into working with chains, and I did all the charms with little chain loops to frame them! love it!
This was the holiday Monday and I spent it lounging around in this dress.
You may recognize this fabric from my first outfit round-up- This dress is the most comfy thing to wear- I made it ages ago and it’s my ‘around the house dress’. It’s out of a stretch jersey and it is literally a rectangle that has a slit in the front, gathers on the shoulder and a tie around the waist, I didn’t even finish any of the edges.
Tuesday was back to work- and I thought my Drape Drape top was a good choice! comfy but interesting!
Yay for multi-colour pussy willows!
Day 21’s look was something I dragged from the back of my closet- this is a vest I made in high-school from a BurdaStyle magazine. just a cute little vest.
And I had to include this picture because mom and I nearly peed ourselves laughing at it. It just goes to show, even dogs have their un-photogenic moments!
Now for day 22 I got back into my bags! This one is a favourite and I take it everywhere- it holds so much! with a nice big pocket across the front too! This was a self-drafted pattern.
It even holds Finn!
On Friday I thought I would pull out this top that I made back in November, modified from a BurdaStyle pattern. I love this loose-fit chic, and I’m still in love with my decision to add the front pocket!
And last but not least- more jewelry- specifically these earrings!
And that was my round-up!
I can’t believe this month has gone by SO FAST! This Saturday will be my final MMMay14 post- and I promise this one will come out on Saturday!
Hope you are all doing well with your pledges, I know that I’ve been struggling quite a bit, with my new job and trying to coordinate everything, so sometimes I don’t always wear my me-mades for the whole day, or plan them out very well- but I do find that I’m remembering them all more and getting more use out of them.
I ‘ve found that a gap in my me-made wardrobe is simple light tops and summer dresses. Also I would like another light jacket because I have been living in my denim Islander Sewing one and as much as I love it, variety is always great! How are you doing with your pledge? have you found any gaps in your me-made wardrobe?
