Me Made May 2015 - Week Three


Day 17 - 13 degrees celcius.  Wearing McCall's 6992 for a day of housework and grocery shopping.



Day 18 - 18 degrees celcius.  Wearing Sewaholic Oakridge and Vogue 1247 to work


Day 19 - 13 degrees celcius.  Sunny day but getting quite wintery.  Wearing Sewaholic Thurlows and New Look 6050 shirt to work.



Day 20 - 14 degrees celcius.  Wearing Vogue 1027 dress for work and meetings.


Day 21 - 22 degrees celcius.  I was a little overdressed for work today in Vogue 1194 a DKNY dress.  I should have left the tights and boots in the wardrobe


Day 22 - 12 degrees celcius.  Cold but sunny.. Wearing merino cowl neck Sewaholic Renfrew, Sewaholic Cordova and Ginger Jeans for work followed by school football then swim squads and finally shopping.  I forgot to take my photo in all the mayhem today, and rushed out in fading sunlight


Day 23 - -2 degree start rising to 14 degrees celcius.  It was a bitterly cold start to the day hence the layers.  I was supposed to go to my sons rugby match but ended up fabric shopping instead. Wearing Sewaholic Minoru, Jalie Jeans, Jalie Cardigan and Jalie tee. 

For some reason Me Made May has slipped my mind a couple of times in the past week.  I am not sure whether that is a measure of my enthusiasm this far through or because Me Made is a large part of my life anyway.  There may be repeats in the next week but I am okay with that.  We all have our favourites don't we!

  1. It's been lovely to see how you wear your "Me Made" garments in real life Andrea. You have a great wardrobe and I'm very impressed with your knitting skills too.

    1. Thank you! Me Made May is always helpful to see where the gaps are.

  2. Hi Andrea I presume you live in Christchurch. I live in Halswell and have just discovered your blog. Interested in the Ponte Fabric you used for your pants. Are Cotura Fashions open to the public. I mostly buy by fabric at The Fabric Store or EmmaOneSock, so a new source might be interesting.

    1. Hi Sue, it is nice to have a follower from my own neck of the woods! Yes, Cotura are in Christchurch. They are in Main South Road beside King's Swim School and yes they are open to the public. I bought the last of the roll of this ponte so I am not sure whether you will find any there. I did see some really good quality stuff at Fabric Vision last week and it was on sale. I am actually really tempted by their stuff.

    2. Hi Andrea I have bought a few pieces of Ponte from Fabric Vision and you are right it is good quality. Might give Cotura Fashions a visit on Thursday.

    1. Ha, I have noticed that too...there does seem to be a bit of a theme going on colour wise! I wish I could say it was good planning but really I just make what I like.
