Me-Made-May: Days 4-89:42 AM
This week is really getting away from me! I'm behind on everything, BUT I'm keeping to my me-made pledge of four self-stitched items per week. In fact, I'm outdoing it! I've only skipped one day so far! Here are my outfits and
ramblings thoughts from the last five days.
|Dress: Simplicity 2584|
Cardigan: The Limited
Apron: Shown here, Simplicity 2592
|Dress: Vogue 8380|
Shoes: Aerosoles (my new favs, I think)
Accessorized with pearl earrings, a vintage pearl bracelet, and, at dinner, a mango margarita!
|Shorts: American Eagle|
I confess, Sunday was a shorts and t-short day. Alas, I have successfully made neither (yet!) so, I cheated a bit - but, this is a bonus day anyway - I wore a me-made bracelet. I whipped this up last summer, just playing around with some scraps. It's flannel lined and uber-cozy. It gets worn from time to time when I'm not feeling my usual pearls.
|Top: Self-drafted based on Casey's|
Skirt: Simplicity 2154
Shoes: J Vincent
Accessorized with another vintage brooch
|Top: Simplicity 2339|
Skirt: Vineyard Vines
Shoes: my trusty TopSiders
Accessorized with pearl earrings, Nine West sunglasses, a Disney charm bracelet, and CoCo
Wow, this is quite a contrast from the day before! There are clearly two sides to my wardrobe personality: the dressier, vintage loving side and the casual, East Coast side. Seersucker, a khaki skirt, and boat shoes - this is obviously my hometown coming through. This is a very typical outfit for me and in no danger of going unworn. What it does remind me though, is that I need more separates! This is the only me-made shirt that I actually wear! I do have khaki twill to make a darker, similar skirt using Simplicity 2451, my TnT, and a few fabrics to make more of this top. Now, I just have to squeeze it all in...
Feel free to share any thoughts! Feedback makes this challenge even more helpful.
Are you still sticking to your pledges? (I'm behind on my Reader but, I'm slowly making it through everyone's posts!)
Happy sewing! x
