Me Made May Week 2
Monday, 13 May 2013
I did pretty well last week on my first few days of Me Made May 2013 and I think I've done even better this week - in fact I know I have!
Although there are only 5 outfits pictured below, I've managed to wear at least one Me Made item every day this last week.
7th May - Burdastyle Danielle dress, which was one of the very first things I blogged about last June. I got a compliment from the lady on the checkout in Sainsbury's who told me I looked gorgeous!
8th May - My spotty Sorbetto with sleeves, again a very early Me Made item, I think it's actually pre-blog. Excuse the trousers - they always look wrinkly when I'm standing still!
9th May - the weather started cooling a bit and I was working from home so I wore my recently completed Ramona sweater with jeans. I really love this sweater, the yarn is so soft and silky and it's incredibly light, but quite warm.
10th May - 2 Me Made items - my gorgeous New Look 6000 70's floral top and my Simplicity 2562 Amazing Fit trousers. I normally wear a tighter fitting top with these trousers, but I do quite like this outfit. Sadly I was either at home alone, or had my coat on when I was out, so hardly anyone saw it!
11th May - Again 2 Me Made items, both yet to be blogged. A lace kimono tee drafted using Miss P's tutorial, and a very recently completed cardigan. The pattern is Blue Sky Alpaca's Afternoon Cardi, and it's lovely (even if I do say so myself!).
12th May (not pictured). I wore the Afternoon Cardi again, this time with my Sailor Stripes top underneath. Had my coat on most of the day, so no one saw them!
13th May (not pictured). Working from home today, and it's cold! I'm wearing a not yet blogged long sleeved t-shirt with my yoga trousers and slippers. I'm quite glad no one's seen this outfit, but at least part of it is Me Made!
And very excitingly - and Me Made May related - I have won a pattern in So Zo's MMM'13 giveaway in conjunction with Sewbox. I chose the Hot Patterns Riviera Boulevard Cardigan-Jacket and to my surprise it arrived this morning!
I just wish I had time to make one before I go on holiday this weekend.
Thank you so much to Zoe for organising the giveaway and Sewbox for my lovely prize. I'll be searching for suitable fabric while I'm away.
