That’s the last full week of Me Made May – only a few more days to go!
The sun was out in full force so I finally got to wear one of my favourite me made summer dresses – the Rosie dress that was free last summer with Simply Sewing Magazine. I bought this gorgeous fabric from John Lewis – I still have some left so need to think of something else to make from it.
I also wore my me made yoga pants and Star Linden top to my dance fit class in the evening.
I had woken up to the news of the awful terror attack in Manchester this morning so I felt very strange and frivolous posting a picture this day. I wore one of my Colette Patterns Moneta dresses in this lovely jersey from Sew Over It.
I wore my kitty hearts blouse with contrast lace yoke – the pattern is the 6107 by New Look patterns and I bought the fabric from Miss Matatabi fabrics. I paired the blouse with my Tilly and the Buttons Clemence skirt, which is made from a navy stretch cotton.
Today I wore my other favourite Colette Patterns Zinnia skirt in this lovely Russian Dolls fabric. I wore it with a self drafted cropped top made from an ivory broderie anglaise. This skirt height is perfect with this top so that I don’t actually flash my tummy!
Today was also a really happy day as I managed to get tickets to the Sewing Weekender, which is an event at the start of August run by The Fold Line and English Girl at Home. There were only 50 tickets up for grabs and I just happened to check on them before I left for work and got lucky. I can’t wait for a lovely weekend away in Cambridge meeting lots of new sewing friends.
The sun was still out in full force so I wore my other Tilly and the Buttons Bettine dress in this beautifully soft chambray from John Lewis. It’s the perfect dress to throw on in the summertime and I definitely plan to make another soon.
I was head to toe in Sew Over It today! I wore my denim Erin skirt from the City Break capsule wardrobe, paired with one of my Silk Cami tops in a lovely Liberty lawn. I did change into another me made outfit in the evening as I went out to my other half’s EP launch gig but there was no time to take pictures! I wore some ginger jeans and a cross back top.
I had a lot of sewing to do today so I did spend the majority of the day in me made pjs but I did get changed for a trip to the shops! I wore my latest Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top in the light blue loop back jersey from Guthrie Ghani. You may notice that I already have this top in the navy and that is because I love it!! I wore it with my Kommatia patterns denim braces skirt, which I was a recent pattern tester for.
All in all, this week was very blue themed, with a couple of exceptions. I’ll try to branch out colour-wise for the last few days!
