Me Made May 2016

I have participated in Me Made May again but this time only on Instagram and also due to personal circumstances not for the entire month.  Please bare with me now while I try to cram three weeks into one blog post.

The month started out very much like summer but by the end we had skipped autumn altogether and have been plunged straight into winter.  Oh, well it was nice while it lasted!

Day 30 - wearing Sewaholic Cordova in wool, Tessuti Alexa in merino and Vogue 1247 skirt in printed denim to work.

Day 30 - wearing McCall's 6992 and modified Lindy Petal skirt for work.  There was no time for photos this morning because it was bucketing down with rain so I had to drive my son to school.

Me Made May was definitely made easier with the warm weather but I managed to get to the end of the month with quite a few unworn items in my wardrobe so the extra week would not have proved much extra of a challenge.  It will however be a relief to not have to take any photos tomorrow!


  1. You have some fabulous garments in your wardrobe Andrea and I have enjoyed following along with you this month. I agree that the unusually warmer days at the start of May made it easier to encorporate some extra garments that I would not have thought of wearing at this time of the year.

    1. Thank you! I have enjoyed following your outfits as well!

  2. I have really enjoyed viewing your MMM2016 wardrobe and you have given me some good ideas for my wardrobe. Thank-you. I have many of the patterns you have used and I will be taking a feather out of your cap and making some similar garments. I particularly liked your Granville shirt dress and your V1247 skirt.

    1. Thank you Marjorie. V1247 is my favourite skirt pattern.

  3. Always so stylish. I love that white new look top and your Morris jackets, but you have so many great things. I hope you are doing OK x

    1. My Morris jackets are some of my favourites as well.

  4. I've enjoyed all your outfits on IG too! I think it's a great time of year for a me-made month because it starts out all summery for us, so we get to wear some of our summer gear, and then is usually quite wintery by the end, so we get to wear some more of cooler weather gear.

    1. Thank you Carolyn! It is certainly helpful with the seasonal transition.
