Me Made May Days 6,7 and 8
Day 6 was raining, hence the colourful accessory. Today I wore 3 me made items, Vogue 1247 favourite skirt, another favourite in this rescue blouse, and merino cardigan.
Day 7, and the first frost of the season saw me wearing 3 me made outer layers. Did I also mention that there are me made under layers most days as well! My dress is another favourite, made using New Look 6071, and written about here.
Because we had the first frost of the season on day 7, I brought out my winter coat for the first time to get to work warm and toasty. This has proved to be another favourite. I love the warm claret red against the grey. This was made using Simplicity 2508 and I like the shape so much, it will be my go to pattern in the future. I also wore a hand knitted by me scarf in feathers that pre dates my blog.
Today, day 8, my coat came out to play again because of another frost. Today I wore it with a recent addition to my wardrobe, Vogue 1027. It is actually a summer dress but with tights and a cardigan, is very winter appropriate.
