Are you taking part in Me Made May this year? How’s it going?
We are a good couple of weeks into Me Made May now and I have been posting daily photos of my outfits over on Instagram. I’m enjoying it. Getting a bit freaked out by all these selfies that I am taking but enjoying participating none the less. I thought I would share my progress so far with you.
The month started with a Bank Holiday and my stripey Tilly and the Buttons Coco top worn with RTW jeans and cardigan. I kind of regret the lack of effort I made here. I rarely wear this top because it is so shapeless and ugly. I barely left the house this day but still… no excuse for ugly clothes.
Back to work on day 2 and I wore my By Hand London Anna dress with a cropped black RTW cardigan. I tend to make more of an effort for work than I do when I am just at home. I wear a lot of dresses and have adopted this ‘fitted dress and cardigan’ as a sort of self-imposed work uniform. I feel comfortable with this look.
Day 3 and I wore my plum coloured Annabelle Dress by Simple Sew Patterns and paired it with a stripey cardigan from Collectif. I love the colour combinations of this outfit.
Day 4 and I wore my newly completed Vintage Shirt Dress by Sew Over It. I love this dress so much. I’m hoping to get some more photos of it and do a full blog post later this week.
Day 5 and I went for separates, with my denim Rusholme Skirt (from Wendy Ward’s book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts’) paired with a vintage reproduction jumper from Collectif. This is such a great skirt. So flattering and goes with pretty much everything. I love the jumper too, even if I didn’t make it! Collectif is probably my favourite RTW brand. You will see a few things from there throughout this month.
Day 6 was a Saturday but I was in work for a sixth form revision session. I kept it casual in RTW jeans and a Sew Over It Ultimate Shift Top. The top is made from the softest French Terry from Girl Charlee UK and it is a dream to wear. It is so soft it makes me feel like I am being hugged.
Day 7 and I wore my Tilly and the Buttons. Cleo Dress with a stripey t-shirt. This is a great weekend dress. Casual but not so casual that I feel like a slob.
Day 8 and I wore my Gertie Dress – princesss seam bodice and a-line skirt- together with a red bolero from Woolovers. This dress is made from a lovely ponte and so it is super comfy to wear. Secret Pyjmas.
Day 9 and a different kind of silhouette for me, but one that I love. This is my Sew Over It Ultimate Pencil Skirt worn with a vintage style polo shirt from Collectif.
Day 10 and I wore my Jennifer Lauren Afternoon Blouse with a black box pleated RTW skirt. I really like this look, but now I am properly looking at this photo I am thinking maybe it was a bit too drab. What do you think?
Anyway… that’s it for part one. I hope you have enjoyed this little insight into my Me Made wardrobe, I know I have!
