It’s day twelve of Me-Made-May 2014 and so far I’ve upheld my pledge to wear at least one me-made garment every day this month. I’ve been posting my pics daily in the #MMMay14 page under ‘Makes’ in my header menu bar and also on the #MMMay14 Pinterest page.
I’m glad I’m doing this. I love to see other people’s makes on Pinterest and it’s a good way for me to find out what I need to make more of and looking at the photos forces me to see what suits me and what doesn’t.
After a really warm April, it’s turned chilly again and it’s been a challenge to find trans-seasonal pieces in my me-made wardrobe. I usually layer up tees and blouses with cardigans or jumpers and jeans. I can see I need to make more layering pieces such as light jackets and cardigans.
May 1st was a national holiday in Germany and we were invited for a bbq with friends so I wore my latest Ralph Pink jumpsuit in Liberty tana lawn cotton. I’ll blog about the making of this soon.
May 2nd was still warm enough for short sleeves so I wore my latest Make It Perfect Waterfall blouse in Missoni cotton with jeans.
May 3rd was cooler and I layered up this (un-blogged) tie-front blouse in Liberty tana lawn cotton with a cardigan and jeans to do grocery shopping at the farmer’s market in town.
May 4th was warm and we had a family day out in a park zoo so I wore an un-blogged Grainline Studio Scout tee in Liberty tana lawn cotton layered with a cardigan and jeans.
Monday May 5th is sports day for my young children so I wore an un-blogged self-drafted tank top in organic cotton jersey and self-drafted yoga pants in Liberty cotton jersey.
May 6th was my birthday so I marked the occasion by wearing my latest dress (un-blogged) in Italian cotton and cotton/silk. It was a bit cool so I wore it tunic style over jeans. The design is by Ely Kishimoto and the pattern was in Cut Magazine. I love this dress and will blog my review of it soon.
