Good evening! Well we're now into day four of Me-Made-June and the excitement of finally taking part definitely hasn't worn off yet. In fact I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying it: both wearing Me-Made clothes every day and seeing what everybody else in the Me-Made community is wearing - I love it! Here's what's been happening for the past three days....
|MMJ: Day Two|
Skirt: Me-made Beignet
(blatantly copied from Tilly after seeing hers at the Goldhawk Road meet-up!)
Me-Made Category: A
I wore this skirt all the time through the winter months as its perfect with tights. I've never worn it bare legged before as I always felt the length was a bit knee revealing. But I suppose one of the aims of MMJ is to map uncharted territory so bare knees it was. And guess what? Strangers didn't stop in the street and point at me, not even once...
|MMJ: Day Three|
Dress: Me-Made Crepe dress
Me-Made Category: B
I've worn this dress twice. Despite spending what seemed like weeks on end working on the fit of the bodice, it still doesn't feel like it fits properly on the shoulders. Once it's on though, it's wonderfully cool and swishy and was perfect for yesterday's sunny weather in London. The MMJ Flickr Group mini-challenge for that day was to photograph ourselves spinning. Well, that should be easy in this dress, I thought. Not quite. My two 'helpers' thought it was absolutely hilarious seeing me spinning around like a lunatic in front of the camera and insisted on jumping into every shot!

|MMJ: Day Four|
Blouse: Me-Made from a 1950's pattern
Skirt: Me-Made Beignet
Me-Made Category: both A
Even though the blouse is a relative newcomer to my wardrobe, I've worn it quite a few times, which is a great result for something that started life as a muslin. I loved wearing my Beignet so much on day two, I gave it another spin today. x
