Me-Made May wrap-up

I thought I’d wrap up Me-Made May with another update of some outfits from the second half of the month. After basically only wearing me-made trousers for the first half of the month, I did make a slight deliberate effort to wear some different silhouettes in the later half. This led to digging out some older makes which made me fall back in love with them a bit, like my Ronja dungarees and a Closet Case Fiona sundress, which I made as a wearable toile and is indeed very wearable. The weather also got nicer which meant I could ditch the RTW knitwear and my new jacket was a late-entry winner.

It’s clear to see I stuck well within the colour stratosphere I defined for myself last update:

I’m really glad to have a palette I know I feel great in – however I do miss prints sometimes and would like to find a way for them to edge back in a bit. I also have a good sense of what I want to make next to keep building on this really nice foundation wardrobe I’ve got going. Here are a few things on my to-sew list:

  1. Another pair of McCall 7445 in powder blue needlecord
  2. A couple of Wiksten midi length shift dresses – a solid and a print?
  3. Another pair of TPC12 in sand/tan denim from Cloth House
  4. Silk/cotton summer tops in blue, lilac and white – I love this vintage New Look pattern

As Zoe says in the MMM kickoff post, “Hopefully, by the end of the month, you will have learnt a whole load about yourself, your style, how you feel about your wardrobe, and how best to spend your clothes-making time going forwards.” and I certainly feel like I have this year.

    Have. very much enjoyed reading and seeing your MMM wardrobe and am I,pressed by your thoughtful colour palette. One of the things I found from MMM was that I need get out of my navy and grey blue rut. You’ve inspired me!

    Excellent wrap up post for Me Made May. I think it’s interesting that you have so many me-made bottoms / trousers, because I have the same thing going on in my wardrobe. Anyway, love the M7445s, like look like a really good useful make and good to see the Ronja back in rotation.
