almost forgotten to write my final post for MMMAY15 with all the excitement of Jumping Into June! So without further ado, and no more mentions of Jumpsuits (it’s only the 2nd – I hope you’re not sick of them already!) here’s my last few days of MMMAY2015.
A work day, but wasn’t starting until 12 noon. So was able to wear my me made clothes before i had to swap them for my uniform.
I wore my Victoria Blazer over a Sorbetto with RTW jeans. This jacket is just the best! It’s a bit like my Morris, in that i can throw it over anything and it looks good. It was really cheap fabric at £2 a yard, and with how it’s worn over the last year it shows. It’s gone a bit bobbly so I don’t wear it as much, as I want it to last forever!
Cricket! For a change! I dressed for it being nice weather, but 2 hours into the game I changed into my jeans. Prior to changing I wore a denim Yasmin Yoke skirt and a stripy Coco. On the back of my chair you might just be able to make out my Colette Albion – it did get worn when the temperature dropped! Also on the back of the chair is a blanket I knitted last year, specifically for cricket – not sure why I never blogged it.
And look at that cheeky duck! I never fed it but it didn’t give up wanting my vanilla slice!
A lazy day at home, so didn’t get dressed until later when we went for a bike ride……. to the KFC!! It was nearly a healthy ride!
Out came the Renfrew I wore earlier in the month. I don’t have anything else me made yet for bike rides, so it was either this or a frock!
I wore my first Coco. A plain black ponte that is passed it’s best due to bobbling, but looks ok from a distance! I wore it with my favourite jeggings, luckily i noticed they needed some TLC before I wore them. It’s a wonder how I escaped a serious wardrobe malfunction – due to excess wear the seams were at breaking point! I sewed another seam about 1/4 ” from the original then topstitched for extra strength. Here’s the fix, before and after:
It was almost a full split! Front, back and inner thighs!
Excuse wires!! Still not quite finished the lounge off!
I nipped out shopping in the morning, but the rest of the day was spent mostly in my dressing gown as I was sewing. When I was dressed I wore my new cowl neck Lekala but forgot to take a picture, so popped it on early next morning and H took one before I got properly dressed. He was still in bed! Not the most flattering photo – would rather have the camera above than below!
We had an early start as H had his final trials for Yorkshire cricket. We had a nervous few hours to kill, so in the morning we had a walk around York. I wore my Candy Cowl Top, my Oslo Cardigan and my Colette Albion.
Are you sad it’s all over? I am. I’m still continuing to wear mostly me mades. I’m not fasting again this year – i.e. the RTW fast – but on the other hand I’ve only bought jeans and a waterproof jacket this year, so I sort of am.
I think my MMMAY shows I’ve lots of choice in tops and get plenty of wear out of them and cardigans and jacket, but next year I hope I’ll have more bottoms in my me-made wardrobe too!
I’ve loved my rookie year of me-made-made-May and hope that those of you who have just been on the side lines this year take the plunge next year.
