The 2nd Half of MeMadeMay17

No don’t rub your eyes, you have read correctly, and yes I am that behind! No apologies necessary, absent friends don’t need to do that….right?  I hope so! I’m here, I’m back and I’ll just get on with it! You can read the first instalment of MeMadeMay HERE.  With me writing this so late I’m just so pleased I posted on IG otherwise it would be a struggle writing this! Day 18 & 19 – I worked 10-20 so it was uniform all day.  If I’m starting earlier or later I do tend to wear ‘my own’ clothes either before and after my shift but with this rubbish shift it’s all work, PJs then bed.  But my trusty Brooklyn Hoodie saves the day when I need me made on a work day – this was made with a colleague’s old fleeces that were destined for the bin! Day 20 – I took part in the Forget Me not Trust Colour run.  My jazzy Espresso leggings were perfect.  I looked like I’d been splattered even before …

#memademay17 – Halfway there

I pledged to wear me made every day and post on IG and so far so good!  It’s been tough at times as I discover more clothes that are too big for me, but on the plus side some of my older makes have been dug out of the archives. 1 – My first Molly Top from Sew Over It has had lots of wear since I made it back in October, and is still in regular rotation. 2 – Me Made May sprung me into action the night before a game of golf when I didn’t know what I could wear that was me made.  I up cycled an unloved golf top that belonged to my hubby. 3 – Day 3 and I managed a whole outfit!  A fairly recently make, my Cynthia Rowley Skirt (simplicity 1783) and a top using a Simple Sew pattern from last year (sorry I can’t remember which one!) 4 – My first and only Fehr Trade VNA top.  I really need more of these for my new action packed …

Me-Made-May 2015 Part 4

Crikey, I’d 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. 26th 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! 27th Cricket!  For a change!  I dressed for it being nice weather, but 2 hours into the game I changed into my jeans. …
