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:
- Another pair of McCall 7445 in powder blue needlecord
- A couple of Wiksten midi length shift dresses – a solid and a print?
- Another pair of TPC12 in sand/tan denim from Cloth House
- 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.
