I’m still holding true to the challenge I set myself to wear at least one self-made item for each day this month. It has been a fun and thought-provoking exercise and has made me reassess my wardrobe, my ideas for new projects and some of my lesser worn items. I must admit though I am getting a little tired of taking a photo of my outfit each day…it makes me feel rather self conscious. Nevertheless, here we go:
Thursday 15 May: Purple Rose tie top
Love this one (although this photo doesn’t really do it justice). I’ve blogged about it here
Friday 16 May: Pleated Birds top
Simplicity 2029 made with lovely printed cotton from Tessuti. Cute top but not particularly flattering I don’t think.
A self-made pattern based off of some tutorials. The fabric is a wool knit (I think it’s wool) remnant from Tessuti. A great all-rounder top. Check out the boots 🙂
Just blogged about this one. Thank you, weather, for being unexpectedly warm so I could wear it 🙂
This is a self-made pattern (one of my first) that was originally made for the Tessuti awards back in 2012 but since then it has needed a few fitting tweaks. It has taken me until now to get that done! So, thanks to MMM I now have this dress in my closet rather than ‘THAT bottom drawer’.
The picture didn’t come out well at all but this dress is a pretty casual number that I’ve mentioned before.
A very early project (can’t remember the pattern). Lovely grey wool and fully lined. Great little skirt.
