Me-Made-May: A not quite so delayed week two

On Tuesday I posted about my Me-Made-May week one outfits, and today I am posting about the week two outfits.

Day Eight

Day eight was a Tuesday which is an admin day at home for me, therefore I work a rather relaxed denim skirt and t-shirt. The denim skirt started off as a pair of Carhart jeans that I umm “grew” out of, I wore this with a David and Goliath t-shirt that reads “Rock is Dead: Long live paper and scissors”, red tights and converse (when taking out little one).

Day Nine

Wednesday is a day at work so I was back to being a little smarter. On day nine I wore a black polo neck jumper with an Amy Butler Barcelona skirt in a beautiful dress forms fabric. This was worn with black tights and black knee high boots.

Day Ten

Thursday’s are my study days but at the start of May I was between modules on my course and so spent the morning lazing around in the pyjamas that I made for the pyjama party and working on Middle Sister’s wedding present (obviously I have posted no pictures of this yet but will do after the wedding at the end of August).

Day Eleven

Friday and back to work, today Me-Made-May made an appearance via necklace:

I made this necklace by using a bobbin (I think it is called french knitting)to create three knitted ropes, plaiting them together an sewing beads onto the end. I wore this with a black dress, my favorite rabbit cardigan, black knee high boots and tights the same colour  as the necklace.

Day Twelve

On Saturday night I wore this top that was originally a dress with a pain of dark jeans and black heels.

Day Thirteen

Sunday was a day for walking Little One in the woods, at this point everywhere is very wet and muddy so wellies are a must meaning I need my welly socks:

I knitted these when I was first learning to knit and I found the Owl jumper pattern, I had never knitted in the round before and wanted to try something before making the jumper.

Day fourteen

This is a really loss Me-Made -May entry, I found this skirt in a charity shop when I was about 19 (that is eleven years ago!!!) and added the cat to it, the cat has beads and sequins sewn around it but it is slowing fading towards non-existence but I still can’t bear to be parted from it…I will have to see whether I can redo the cat in some way to give him a fresh new look. I wore the skirt with a little jacket, black tights and red ballet shoes.

Me-Made-May: A Very Delayed Week One

Back in April I pledged to join Me-Made-May, I have been wearing one item made by my own fair hand each day for the month so far, but alas I have not posted. Each day I have made a note of what I wore with the aim that S would be able to take a photo at some time, we have now reached 22nd May and we still haven’t taken any photos so today I decided to dress up my tailors dummy it what I have worn instead.

Day One:

On Tuesday’s I work from home on an admin day so I can keep my clothes nice and relaxed, this skirt was originally a halter neck dress and although I loved the print of the fabric I just never wore it as a dress because I felt so uncomfortable in it so I changed it to a high waisted skirt and used the ties from the neck to make little braces. I wore the skirt with a white long sleeved top, yellow tights and tan shoes.

Day Two

Day two and another high waisted skirt that started life as a dress. I altered this dress back in January and have worn it to work quite a bit since. On day two I wore the skirt with a simple navy t-shirt, navy tights and navy ballet shoes.

Day Three

This is an Amy Butler Barcelona A line skirt (I have made several of these so there are others to make an appearance later in the month). On day three I wore the skirt with a black knit top with a bird on, black tights and black boots.

Day Four

On day four I wore one of the Sorbetto tops that I made the previous day. I wore the black and white top with a pale pink skirt, black shrug, black tights and black boots.

Day Five

Day five was a Saturday so for the evening out I wore this dress that I made in June 2010 at a workshop at Make Lounge in Highbury and Islington. I wore the dress with a black belt (the dress hangs without shape making me feel like a short box without it), purple shrug, purple tights and purple heels.

Day Six

On day six, a Sunday I relaxed at home and walked the dog, it was a particularly cold day so I seized the opportunity to wear my owl jumper  hoping that later in the month it would be too hot to wear a knitted jumper (this wasn’t to happen and I have worn it again since). I wore the jumper with jeans and converse, nice and relaxed.

Day Seven

Back to work on day seven so I wore the other Sorbetto I made with my navy suit. I wore this outfit with red tights and navy ballet shoes.

I will aim to take photos of my clothes from week two and post tomorrow.
