Umm. Yeah. I know we’re a week past May now, but after my loungewear posting frenzy last week, I kind of got tired and took a wee break. So, finally, here’s my Me-Made-May week 5 Recap!
I got really tired of asking Mr. 5 to take my picture every day, and it shows. You’ll see what I mean…
Me Made: Simplicity 5778 dress.
Wore this on Memorial Day! Been meaning to fix (I’ll explain later) and blog this puppy…
Me Made: Colette Ceylon (unblogged)
Cardigan: Can’t remember the brand, but got it from Costco (ha!) a couple of months ago. ;)
Sandals: Mudd (again)
I decided it was time to crack out my Ceylon, which doesn’t quite fit me right, but whatever. I also decided to librarian it up with this cardi. I was running out of things to wear that were work appropriate. And I use that term very loosely, as we’re allowed to wear pretty much whatever we want to work. I just didn’t want to wear anything super fancy or borderline naughty.
Me Made: Dirndl skirt with elastic waistband (self drafted; if you can call a dirndl skirt that…haha)
Sleeveless top: Mossimo
See what I mean? I didn’t take any photos of me wearing anything for the last three days of May. I had all of my outfits piled on my dresser, intending to put them each on and take a photo as if I’d done it properly the day of. Nope, didn’t happen. So, I did the next best thing and laid them all out on my bed, but apparently I couldn’t be bothered to take a photo in focus…haha…
Me Made: Butterfly Dress by Jennie Atkinson in Rowan Kidsilk Haze/Night, and self drafted double knit slip
Kind of wish I had gotten a better photo, or a photo of this one on…she sure is a pretty knit lace dress! If you’re a Ravelry member, you can see more photos here.
Me Made: Foldover waist jersey skirt, AKA Old Navy copy, Jalie 2919 cardi (not shown)
Sleeveless top: Old Navy
And…I decided to end Me Made May how I began it; with this simple jersey skirt. I ran out of Me Made clothes I wanted to actually wear to work (refer back to note on May 28th), so I decided this was the best route to go.
And now May is over! HUZZAH! Things I’ve learned:
1. I need more separates. Tops, shorts, skirts.
2. I need more casual dresses (already knew this one, though!)
3. I hate asking someone to take my picture. Perhaps it’s time to invest in a tripod and remote for my camera?
In short: Me-Made-May is a great concept, and it was fun, valuable exercise, but I also can’t say I’m sorry it’s over for now. Documenting all of those outfits felt like a lot of work! That being said, perhaps MMM & I will meet again here next year for another rendezvous? We shall see!
