MMM17 Week 4

2017-05-25

I just got back from my holiday this evening, so week 4 of me-made-May features much of the same summer clothes as last week (e.g my plaid vogue 8184, Bonnie top and my maritime shorts). Every single morning I wore my Buchanan silk dressing gown from gather and every evening as it cooled down, I would put on my bright green Linden sweater.

One thing I noted this week however was my lack of tank tops. I have absolutely no me-made tank tops and very few RTW ones. I think mainly because we rarely have enough heat/sunshine in London to bother making them. But my RTW ones are getting quite old and worn out and soon will be retired to the rag drawer. So I think I need to make myself a few jersey tank tops. I know I should just draft something myself, but do you have any patterns you’d recommend?

Three makes that didn’t previously feature include:

Day 21. The ruby dress from Made By Rae is perfect in the heat. The main fabric is chambray with a lovely eyelet for the yoke – both from  Higgs and Higgs.
At home I’d wear it with a belt, but on holiday I’m loving the loose fit. Plus its got huge, useful POCKETS!

Day 24. Another version of vogue 8184. This time in a linen/cotton blend i bought years ago from ditto fabrics. Alas i forgot to cut the skirt front on the fold so there’s a seam up the centre front that shouldn’t be there.

Day 25. After a grueling day of adventures in the mountains we had a night out. I wore my simplicity 2363 dress again, and the man is in one of his short sleeved McCall’s M6044 shirts.

Only three days left of May – me oh my – where did it go?
