Me Made May weeks 2 and 3

Oops! I missed a week there didn’t I? Work has been a bit mad lately and has left me no time for blogging, or reading other blogs for that matter. I shall try to be as quick as possible as I have two week’s worth of garments to get in!

8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th May

MMMay 8 to 12

I started the second week wearing my Simple Sew Chelsea skirt and my Molly top made a return. On Wednesday 9th I took over the Simple Sew Instagram account so I made sure I was wearing it from head to toe! I wore my Pussy Bow blouse and the unblogged-because-it-was-a-pattern-test High-Waisted trousers! I then reverted back to my stripey Walkley top from MIY Collection, and teamed with the last thing I made in April – The Arielle Skirt from Tilly and the Buttons. I shall be blogging this soon. Friday I wore my un-blogged, but often worn, sleeveless top from the GBSB third book. On Saturday the 12th May I went on an old lady bus tour to RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate and I wore my Simple Sew Colour Block Top. Apologies for the dodgy selfie where you can barely see the top but I felt ridiculous photographing myself!

13th, 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th May

 

 

MMMay 13 to 17

On Sunday 13th I slobbed around in my Molly top and my newly fixed Safari skirt by Sew So Easy. On Monday I kept the Safari skirt and paired it with the Simple Sew Jersey top. Another Simple Sew make for Tuesday but this time the Stylish Shell top. On Wednesday I wore my beloved Archer by Grainline Studios. On Thursday the weather had cooled right down so I wore my Delphine Skirt from Love at First Stitch by Tilly and the Buttons. I also wore my Deer and Doe Luzerne Trench coat.

18th, 19th, 20th and 21st May

 

MMMay 18 to 21

On Friday evening we went for a stomp around the beautiful Scarborough countryside. I wore my Archer again. On Saturday it was the turn of my Simple Sew Zoe dress. Sunday was spent gardening in my Arielle skirt and my Molly top. Finally, at the end of week three, I wore my Pauline Alice Cami dress.

Phew! There’s only a few days left of May but I hope to blog the last week and a bit soon. 1st June if I’m lucky!

Camí/Lilou mashup dress

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year again – Indie Pattern Month over on the Monthly Stitch and I’m joining in again for the second year. There is a challenge a week for the month of July. The first challenge is ‘dresses’.  Now I’m not normally a ‘dresses’ kind of person (although they are fun to make!) but there was one dress that I wanted to go back to because my first attempt had quite a lot of mistakes in it.

The pattern: The Camí dress by Pauline Alice. My very first Camí dress was submitted for a Monthly Stitch challenge a couple of years ago. You can read all about it here. I went for view A this time around. Continue reading

The end of #MMMay17

Ooops, I’m a bit late in writing this one! On Monday (22nd – I told you I was late) I wore my Charlotte skirt from By Hand London. I did shorten this one significantly because I couldn’t be bothered to deal with the split at the back! You can read about mine here. Continue reading

Pauline Alice’s Cami dress for our two-year blogiversary!

Applebymakes is 2 years old this month!  Hasn’t it gone quick?  The Monthly Stitch is also celebrating it’s 2nd anniversary and I thought that this dress fits into their ‘2’ theme.  The dress in question is the Pauline Alice Cami dress and I was seduced into buying it by lots of lovely versions of it in blog land!
