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!

Me Made May 2018

Is it May already? Time for Me Made May 2018. I actually love this challenge but my family hate it! All those photos I make them take! However, since last year I have been given a tripod with a phone mount, and I have a phone that takes pictures when I say ‘cheese’! No family involvement necessary (although I’ll probably still make them do it). This is my fourth year of completing this challenge and here is my pledge: Continue reading

Army skirt

I really shouldn’t have made this skirt –  at least not yet anyway! I’ve got two other WIPs on the go and I really should be focusing on them. One unfinished project is a quilt wallhanging type thing and the other UFO is sewing 6 dining chair covers, but they’re soooo boring to do that I got a bit distracted! This pattern is the brand new Safari Skirt pattern that has only just been released by so sew easy.  I had to sign up to Craftsy to download my pattern which is a potentially dangerous and expensive thing to do! So many things to spend money on! Continue reading
