Me Made May '14 - Week Two

So this week has been pretty hectic but I've done pretty well in wearing my 'Me-made's ...less well in documenting (for reasons as previously discussed!) so here's progress update #2!

DAY 8. I covered a shift at the fabric shop wearing my gingham shirt dress and 'Mother-made' cardi. The dress is a 'Kelly' skirt by Megan Nielsen adaptation. The bodice was self drafted. More info on that one HERE.

DAY 9. Another physio session -this time I squeezed in some me-made shorts over black tights. I was thinking that as they were short the range of movement would be sufficient but alas, they weren't quite right. (I was lucky enough to receive a visit from a friend too, complete with amazing vegan cupcakes, and a housewarming planter!)

DAY 10. I spent the day at the shop and wore my original self drafted vest. This one's a navy crepe polka dot racer back as seen in some of last year's pictures.

DAY 12. First open Monday at Make & Do which I thoroughly enjoyed (we have the best customers ever!) and the start my my brand new workshop series 'Creative Skirts'. I wore my gingham shirt dress with a self drafted bodice and 'Kelly' skirt.

DAY 14. Spent the day running errands and having a wander in the town centre wearing my blue striped 'Kelly' Skirt again (now into duplicates as I'm running a little low on unworn 'me-made's).

So five days out of seven this week. 'Must try harder' with the pictures though!! I've also had another skirt in the pipeline which I must get around to putting together as it's pre-laundered and cut ready. I'm trying out a new silhouette which I'll elaborate on in my next 'Wardrobe Architect' post.
