The second week of Me Made May is over and I’m here today to share the outfits I chose to wear. Unfortunately, we have had the most horrible weather. It’s cold, it’s raining every single day and all my summer clothes were bound to stay in the closet. Thank God I hadn’t packed all the winter ones away, so I had some options to choose from.
I went full on “Tilly and the Buttons” that day. Wore my trusty denim Cleo dungarees with a spotty Agnes top -and of course tights! Fun fact: this was the dress I made last year to celebrate the first day of Me Made May and I still wear it a lot in winter (not so much with bare legs though, because it’s a bit short for me)
I love this photo that Jim took that day. I usually take all my photos on my own when I do it at home, but when we are outside I make him snap a few shots of me. He certainly doesn’t enjoy it and it’s extra hard for me to find a single one that I can actually use, because he always makes me laugh so much. That day for example, I was trying to jump and take a funny pic, but it was just not going to happen. My dress was rolling up, I was out of breath and every shot was either shaken or out of focus. But who cares, right?
For the sake of documenting the challenge, I am wearing one of my first ever jersey makes, a Sew Over It Molly top, which I love and worn to death!
The first newly made garment of the challenge, an Artemis jacket by “I Am Patterns”. I made this one for Minerva Crafts (you can read the review here) and paired it with my yellow Astoria top and a pair of RTW boyfriend jeans.
I really wasn’t feeling it that day, as you can see from my photo. Didn’t put any make up on and barely got off my pajamas in the morning. Wearing my Gable top by Jennifer Lauren Handmade and a Mabel skirt by Colette.
I wore my Lily top by Sew Over It, made in a gorgeous Art Gallery rayon from Minerva Crafts and my RTW jeans. One thing this challenge has already taught me, is that I need to sew a pair of jeans ASAP, because all my store bought ones have a mid-rise waist and are not good for all the cropped tops I made this year.
Sundays afternoons are usually dedicated to lunch with my parents and out for a coffee afterwards, so I wore my beloved Samantha dress by SMYLY patterns. Every time I put on one of my Samanthas I say to myself that it is my favorite, but the truth is I love them all! It’s the perfect dress to feel beautiful in, while being extremely comfortable at the same time. This fabric is still available at Minerva Crafts by the way, find it here.
The funny one, or “what happens when your photographer tells you to jump as high as you can”. Wearing my beloved Aldaia dress from Pauline Alice made in a grey ponte from Minerca Crafts. This was already washed and folded to go into storage along with my other winter clothes, but… it’s still too cold! Full review on the dress here.
And this was the roundup of my second week. I hope you liked my choices 🙂
Until the next time, happy sewing,
