Well, my first year of Me-Made-May is officially over and I’m proud to say I not only stuck to my pledge, but exceeded the amount of handmade garments I thought I would wear. For week 5, I wore something me-made every day (again!). I would like to put together my thoughts on how the month went and where I need to fill wardrobe gaps, but honestly I’m so worn out from a weekend of fun and sun that I’ll probably do that over the next weekend. It’s hitting over 100 degrees now and the hotter it gets, the lazier I become. Now onto the outfits!
This is an unblogged dress of my first attempt at McCall’s 6754. I made a size medium, but it turned out wayyyy too large and I had to take it in a lot. The straps ended up being far too wide so a cardigan is handy to cover that craziness up!
Busting out my first Pneuma Tank to go to the gym, complete with weird facial expression and sad muscle flexing.
This is the first shirt I ever made… an oldie but goodie!
DD and I were off on Friday, so we took a day trip to Phoenix to do some shopping. I wore a Franken-patterned dress that I made last winter. I can now wear it more frequently since it’s hotter than hell outside now.
I didn’t get a full outfit photo because I was a bit tired from sake and beer drinking the night before, but this is the first Colette Moneta I’ve made. DD and I went to a friend’s house to go swimming, so this was perfect as a cover-up. Not to mention it was a good time to bust out the creepy/funny chicken purse my brother and sister-in-law gave me for my birthday last year.
That wraps up the week! I’ll be back for a super-final MMM post… a month in retrospect. See you then! 🙂
