What to wear …

Well, this could be a very boring post about Me Made May as I haven’t taken any photos of my outfits! I know, it’s very naughty but to be honest, I’ve just been having a nice old time and not worrying about capturing the fashion of the day and I’m afraid you’ll have to take my word for it that I have fulfilled my pledge for week one. So, here’s a run down of days 1–7 …

May 1st: Panic! Is it May 1st already?! I didn’t plan the night before plus I am late for work, so out with the Violet blouse teamed with shop bought (sorry) trousers.
May 2nd: My bright little Laurel and jeans (yes I know, jeans. Damn).
May 3rd and 4th: Erm, I spent these two days clearing out the loft and wore my ancient Levis with my daughter’s t-shirt. It’s Ok though, in my pledge I said I would wear me made clothes for three days a week (phew!)
May 5th: Are you still with me? My purple Sorbetto, spotty, dotty number (the one with sleeves) … and jeans of course.
May 6th: OOh, exciting it’s hot enough for a dress for a friends BBQ! My newly altered London dress today!
May 7th: And its hot again so on with my Swishy Swashy dress. Two Simplicity 2444s one day after the other!

So, what has the challenge done for me this week? Well, I swear my London Dress would still be sadly hanging in the wardrobe with its saggy neckline had it not been for MMM’13. So, I’m very happy that I had the kick up the backside on that one! I’m also looking forward to ‘re-stitching’ some of my early makes and that may expand my choice a little.

And then there’s the question of making some trousers (I haven’t forgotten the pledge), I just need some courage and I’ll get going on that. In the meantime, I can’t stop looking at this … exciting!

  1. I can’t blame you! I love that pattern!!

  2. I’ve got this in my ‘to make’ queue waiting for the right fabric. I’m really looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

  3. phew – I feel much better, I was doing quite well on the wearing me-makes, but failing miserably on the photo taking, which kind of knocked my impetus of even trying to wear me-mades… I need to get back on track 🙂

  4. Don’t worry, just remember you are doing it for you and no one else and it takes the pressure off … a bit!

  5. I have the same (self) pledge to tackle trousers… I’m just a chicken. I think that the Mozelle dress is a perfectly good excuse to not sew trousers!

  6. So glad to hear that you’re enjoying MMM, it definately gets the sewing juices going! I’ve just nominated you for a Leibster Award – http://www.sinbadandsailor.com/leibster-award-blog-love/ which I hope you’ll accept 🙂
