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!

 

MMM17 Week 1

7 May

Week one of Me-Made-May  2017 is already whooshed right by. And you know what? It’s been really nice to have something to give me a bit of a push to pull out my me-mades. A few things came out of the drawers that I haven’t put on for months, others form part of my basic wardrobe.

2017-05-07

Day 1: I started off the week with my Linden sweatshirt. This puffin fabric, from bizzy and boo fabrics, never fails to make me smile. Plus its one of those garments I haven’t taken out of the drawer for months! Booyah!

Day 2: its an oldy but a goody McCalls 6124 in plaid brushed cotton. Plus you cant see them but I wore my ginger jeans as well.

Day 3: Wednesday’s outfit was pretty special as I was wearing my new biscayne blouse (with new rtw suit) to a job interview. Plus had on my favourite rosy lady shorts for good luck.

Day 4: I didn’t change out of my comfortable carolyn pajamas

Day 5: Photographing my new moss skirt and biscayne blouse for the blog and decided that with a cardigan and tights they’d be my outfit for the day. So happy with this bright ensemble!

Day 6: I finished my beatrix blouse and it is amazing! Love this pattern in this fabric. I wore  this top out with my ginger jeans for a night on the town!

Day 7: Enjoying a sunny Sunday walk in my Kirsten kimono tee out of birch organic jersey. Love top – its so comfortable.

Me Made May 2017

1 May

MMM

I wasn’t sure until this morning if I was going to take part in Me-Made-May this year. I’ve loved participating the last two years and had decided last year that wearing one me-made garment a day was too easy – in fact I’d planned to make this years challenge all about me-made outfits.

This year however, since I’ve been out of work, I rarely wear me-made.  But as I was sitting in bed this morning checking out everyone’s me-made posts on instagram, my eye wandered up to my clothing rail.  I realised that of the 44 garments hanging in this photo, only 7 are RTW.  It’s not such a high ratio of me-made to RTW in my drawers but still, I’ve been slowly replacing RTW with me-made as it wears out.  So I figured this year, more than ever before I really need to push to wear my me-mades.

So here is my pledge:

 I, Rosemary, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavor to wear ONE me-made garment each day for the duration of May 2017
