I think four days of outfits is about the maximum anybody can stomach at any one time, so this post will take me up to two days ago.
|MMJ: Day 15|
Top: Me-made from a 1950's pattern
Skirt: Me-made 1960's A-line skirt
Me-Made Category: Top, now a B, skirt B
I wish I could claim it was my own idea to wear these two me-made items together, sadly it wasn't, it was Roobeedoo's! She was spot on though, as I love red and turquoise together, why didn't I think of it?!
|MMJ: Day 16|
Top: Me-made from a 1930's pattern
Me-Made Category: Top B, Trousers A
Still feeling in a turquoise mood, hence the top. I did try the two turquoise items together but I looked like a nurse.
|MMJ: Day 17|
Dress: Socialite dress
Cardigan: Marks and Spencer
Me-Made Category: A
Strangely enough, I wore this dress a lot in the winter with tights and a cardigan. I was hoping to wear it in a summery way today but couldn't because a) my limbs were a similar hue to the actual dress - not a good look and b) weather conditions in the UK in June were positively wintery (!) so tights and cardigan it was.
Top: 1950's Blue Roses top
Me-Made Category: C, never worn
...and with good reason. Even though the fabric is gorgeous I'm really cross that I wasted it on this top as I hated wearing it and will probably never wear it again. Reasons? Too short, too drawstringy and the neck is still uncomfortably high. The fabric is too pretty to cast aside though, so I think I can refashion it by lowering the neckline (again) and taking the casing out at the bottom to increase the length. Grrr. I even look like I'm smiling through gritted teeth, which I was!
Apart from the blue rose top, these were a good few days - I do love wearing my handmade clothes. Happy Monday. x
