Wow. How is it already week three of Me-Made May?
Me Made: Grainline Morris blazer
Other: Gap jeans, H&M tee
Comments: Finally finished and in serious rotation. Can’t wait to try this in a fancier stretch woven. Something a bit more business time for the office.
Me Made: True Bias Hudsons
Other: JCrew chambray shirt
Comments: I was mooching about at home so wanted something comfortable to wear if I had to nip to the shops. These are perfect, but I never quite know how to style them. Any ideas?
Me Made: Grrr plantain
Other: Gap jeans
Comments: Yup. Another plantain. Another knit top. I may need to branch out a little more. Maybe make a few more casual dresses? Or tanks for layering?
Me Made: denim inari dress
Comments: I need more of these dresses in my life. Fact. I didn’t quite have time to take a photo this day, so this a repeat from the blog post.
Me Made: camas blouse
Other: h&m skirt
Comments: This is another slow grower. When I first made it I wasn’t too sure about it. But now I wear it all the time. I think it’s something about the colour really grabs me.
Me Made: terry coco
Other: h&m jeans
Comments: I really should branch out already and make my own jeans. After knitted tops, I’d say jeans are my second most worn item of clothing.
Me Made: morris blazer (again!)
Other: h&m shirt and trousers
Comments: way to top and tail the week with the same make, eh? I guess I just get really excited about new makes and wear them to death in the first few weeks. Will promise to try and branch out more next week.
Me-Made May week 3
This week was s-u-p-e-r productive in terms of making. I managed to finish off the morris, sew up another pair of Hudson’s (already a firm favourite) and a lovely new tank pattern (popping up in a blog post next week).
I do really love my makes, but I’m kinda starting to feel like my wardrobe lacks punch. Are the solid colours and monochromatic patterns, just a bit too boring? Yikes. So much soul searching.
So, how have you been getting on? What new revelations have you learned?
