MMM17 Week 3

21 May

Well me-made-may is this week has been wonderful. Mainly because I’m on holiday and have gotten to wear more me made dresses in a week than I normally do all summer in London (well almost). A few years ago I managed to reign in my making of summer dresses, because I don’t really need them. But being here, all warm and sunny, I am overwhelmed with ideas for new dresses – which of course are totally incompatible with London living.

2017-05-21

Day 15: I might not have been wearing me made on Monday but I certainly was enjoying packing a suitcase full of it.

Day 16:  I finished my  new Luzerne Trench Coat from Deer and Doe – its a beauty. And felt so well dressed taking Poppy for her morning walk.

Day 17:  I left a cold and wet London early in the morning wearing my newest bonnie top. But  by mid day it was  at the back of the wardrobe as holidaying in the sun commenced.

Day 18: Vogue 8184 perfect for sunny beach days and incidentally the first dress I ever blogged about!

Day 19:  My silk buchanan dressing grown from gather feels like it was made for these hot sunny mornings, lounging on the terrace. I’ve worn it every morning this week!

Day 19 bonus: Spent an evening out, sipping cocktails, eating paella and looking out over the ocean in my very old New look 6774.

Day 20: I can’t get enough of my sundresses. Simplicity 2363 is one of my favourite patterns as i love the bodice and fit. This version i made years ago, after eyeing up the fabric in Ray Stitch  for weeks, but back then pattern matching didnt even occur to me.

Day 21:  I love this rainbow colored zebra print. I knew as soon as i saw the fabric i wanted to make a pair of shorts out of it. And i think it works wonderfully on the maritime shorts pattern from Grainline Studio. I wore these up a mountain today!
