Me made May week 3 linking with So Zo: I am not jaded yet so still enjoying the challenge as well as seeing how other bloggers tackle it too. The weather has been pretty changeable over the last 7 days.
Monday 11th May
Worn to - Home day today. School run, laundrette, spot of sewing, cooking, gardening and tidying up.
Made - Lined Cord Skirt from Ottobre magazine with pockets and waistband necklace from ravelry
With - Bought Navy t-shirt with pink shoes
Thoughts - I love it. Thanks to my friend for the gifted and thrifted fabric.
Make again? - This is my second one, there will be more!
Tuesday 12th May
Worn to - work tutoring English to apprentices.
Made - Lined Cord Skirt again. Jumper from Laurie Summer top here with Louisa Harding yarn merletto, surprisingly I made it in 2012 when I checked ravelry.
With - Sari scarf and pink shoes
Thoughts - I am in love with this skirt.
Make again? - Yes to skirt. My mum is going to make the top for herself too.
Wednesday 13th May
Worn to - work tutoring English to a parent group
Made - Jumper from Laurie Summer top and necklace from ravelry here
With - Bought, wide leg, white, linen trousers
Thoughts - A comfortable to wear summer outfit even when it is a bit breezy. The top had a ribbon threading through the holes to nip in the waist but I got bored of re-threading it every time I took it on and off but it does look better with it in.
Thursday 14th May
Worn to - work teaching reception children
Made - Bead edged crochet triangle in regia sock yarn
With - Grey jumper and white trousers from yesterday and my felt birdie brooch from Bee at Linen Cloud
Thoughts - Sorry, it was colder than I thought today so a bit of a lame effort!
Friday 15th May
Worn to - work in the office doing apprentice admin and ICT tutoring
Made - Vintage dress circa 1968
With - Green shoes and bare leg tights
Thoughts - I love the feel of this dress with the silky lining.
Saturday and Sunday 16th May
Worn to - The cabin for a sleepover.
Made - My wearable jeans toile in brown cord from Ottobre
With - T-shirt and old fleece
Thoughts - My try out pair of jeans helped me practise a zip fly, top-stitching on pockets and belt loops. They are my gardening/outdoor trousers!
Monday 18th May
Worn to - Work: conducting tests, office work oh, and the dentist!
Made - T-shirt and trousers from a free Sew home&style pattern (on the letters page this month.)
With - Spotty scarf
Thoughts - Great for work. Five people asked me where I got my trousers from today!
Tuesday 19th May
Same again but with warmer lined trousers and a stupid smile!
So still wearing my own clothes, having a haircut on Thursday too. I may struggle next week as we are on holiday and it is bad enough knowing what to pack for a seaside holiday in the UK in May without having to factor in homemade stuff as well!
Thanks for looking. Have you ever sewn anything for yourself?
