Me Made May 2014, Week One



Day 1, 16 deg celcius - Vogue 1247 skirt modified, Grainline Scout top.


Day 2, 15 deg - Wearing Lekala 4329, Sewaholic Thurlows and Kirsten Kimono Tee by Maria Denmark,  to the movies to see The Muppets on the last day of the school holidays.


Day 3, 21 degrees - watching my son play rugby in Burda Style 2/2013 and Jalie Jacket


Day 4, 16 degrees celcius.  Tessuti Boat Neck Tee.  Shopping and a family birthday party.  This photo is a little out of focus due to fading light and a very tired reluctant young photographer.


Day 5, 21 degrees celcius.  Wearing Vogue 1247 in denim and modified and Grainline Scout to work.


Day 6, 23 degrees celcius -  going to work.  Possibly the last of the real warm days before winter comes. Great washing drying day.  You can see the shadow on the wall behind me.  Wearing Sewaholic Thurlows and Grainline Scout Tee.


Day 7, 18 degrees celcius - work.  Wearing Vogue 8805 and carrying a self drafted tote.


Day 8, 14 degrees celcius rain/sun - Work wearing Vogue 1027.


Day 9, 12 degrees celcius - work (casual Friday).  Wearing New Look 6035 blazer and Grainline Archer white shirt.

As you can probably see, the weather has got steadily cooler as the week has worn on which has actually worked in my favour.  I would really like to do one of these challenges in the summer so I can see what I wear regularly in the warmer months.  The warmer start to the week has enabled me to transition some of my summer clothing into autumn with the benefit of layering.  This should mean that I don't have quite so many double ups as the month draws to a close.

  1. You've got some great outfits. I admire the extent of your sewing, such a variety of garments! (I would be wearing a lot more clothes at 23* though, that's chilly here! )

    1. Thank you! When your daytime highs vary between 1 degree celcius and 40 degrees celcius, 23 degrees is perfectly average although not so much for late autumn!

  2. So many "me made" garments Andrea. My favourite outfit is Day 8. Love the dress with the boots and cardi.

    1. Thank you! That dress is one of my favourites as well! There is nothing like a cheerful dress in a dull day!

  3. I love your outfits! The Tessuti Tee looks fabulous - as a relatively new sewer, I have been delighted with the results from this pattern: maximum impact from my minimal skills.... Your diary of 9 'me made' days is inspiring. Many thanks!

  4. You are having a great me-made May! Like you I am enjoying the slow transition to cooler weather since it means I can use more of my wardrobe. Unfortunately a me-made month in summer would be pretty boring for Australians since it's always too hot to wear more than a little loose dress, or shorts. Most of us would rotate between the same 4 or 5 little dresses over and over!
    also, would you consider removing word verification? that captcha is not fun :)

    1. Late spring would probably be a better time but unfortunately November is getting a bit close to Christmas! It would make for interesting photos though! As for word verification, it is a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation! I added it because I was getting such a large amount if spam.

  5. I've been wishing the same thing, but for winter in my hemisphere. I get bored with my cold weather clothes faster, and have a harder time putting together outfits that I feel good about. But I also have a lot fewer things to pick from, so I'd probably have to do a week instead of a month!

    1. I would love to look back on it as well! Me made November just doesn't sound quite right though!
