Another week, another 7 days chock full of me-made makes. Here’s the story for week two…
Me Made: plantain tee, necklace (unblogged)
Other: h&m jeans
Comments: I seem to dress on auto pilot if I’m at home. Knit top, h&m jeans. Maybe too predictable and boring? But hey, I did make this necklace. It’s teething beads looped onto some bright coloured thread. Aurelio can chew away and I I can finally wear necklaces again! Win-win.
Me Made: Sigma skirt (unblogged), terry Coco
Other: vintage belt
Comments: Was meeting up with some Belgium family today, so wanted to up my chic-game. I made this skirt up Friday and I have 0 regrets. I LOVE it. But it wrinkles like a mother ‘ucker. Linen *shakes fist*
Other: jcrew shirt
Comments: These leggings make me realise that I need more leggings in my life. They’re so comfy – and the fabric really stops them from feeling too mundane. I really need to make some more.
Me Made: Hudson pants
Other: h&m shirt, new look shoes
Comments: What can I say, these are my perfect trousers. Relaxed fit. Tapered leg. Elasticated waist. I shouldn’t love them this much, but I do. I really do.
Me Made: floral skirt, Hey June raglan (unblogged)
Other: Dorothy Perkins shoes
Comments: I was totally trying to call out the sun gods with this skirt. Still too chilly here for my liking, but the longer length skirt and long sleeves on the raglan top helped.
Me Made: maya top (unblogged)
Other: H&M trousers
Comments: You know, this is a funny one. I was really not liking this when I made it, then last week was about 65% OK with it, and now I’m really loving this top. How odd. The power of me-made May?
Me Made: plantain, morris blazer (unfinished in this photo, to be blogged this week)
Other: h&m jeans
Comments: I’ve been stalking Jen’s new pattern for weeks and then just totally caved. I love the simplicity of the blazer and hope to make a few more. Of course, would help if I finished this one first.
What have I learned this week?
I should be surrounded by casual makes for home-time lounging (since I really only spend 3 days in an office). But I don’t seem to have many makes that fit the bill.
So, I should really try to make a few more makes in the jeans/casual trousers/leggings category. Does this mean it’s time to try my hand at a pair of Gingers or Jamies? Yikes. Maybe I’ll make a pair of Hudson’s first – to build up my strength.
So are you taking part in Me-Made May? What have you learned about your makes?
