Me-Made-May ’13 Week 1

Here’s a summary for my first week of Me-Made-May. I’ll be posting a round-up each Sunday.

After the first few days of Me-Made-May, I can tell that this month will be a lot of fun. I feel so much better about myself when I put the effort in to look presentable, and wearing me-made items gives me a boost of confidence throughout the day. Taking pictures of myself every day is definitely going to get old, but hopefully, I can change it up and make it fun.

5/1 – Sewaholic Day


For the first day, I wore my Thurlows and a Renfrew made from vintage chevron fabric.

5/2 – Comfy Casual Day


This is a reconstructed skirt and scarf. Thursday was actually the first time I’ve worn this look. This month is already encouraging me to get creative with my outfits and hair.

I’ll show you some shots of my hair sometimes, too. There will probably be a great deal of variety because of the changing weather.


5/3 – Madame Blueberry

IMG_6949This is one of my favorite outfits, lately. The insides of my glasses even match this dress, which I made last summer. What do you think of this outfit? To matchy? To blue? You’re missing out if you never wear monochromatic outfits. ๐Ÿ˜‰

IMG_6955I was having a good hair day, except for a little frizz (an unavoidable perk of living in Southern Maryland).


5/4 – Wrap Me in Flowers


Yesterday, I wore two new pieces that I’ll post about later today. We’ll call this a sneak peek of another new Renfrew and a Miette skirt made from a thrifted floral cotton.

How was your first week of May? If you’re participating in Me-Made-May, are you having fun and/or learning anything yet?

*Reminder: I’m giving away a few patterns and a couple of dresses. Please see this post for more information.*

    I was hesitant to do Me-Made-May, but I am so glad I decided to do it. I am having a lot of fun with it! I also feel better making myself a little more presentable than usual, ha ๐Ÿ™‚ Taking the pics has been easier than I thought, I keep my tripod in the car so I can jump out and take a few shots if I see a good spot. I really like your blue outfit!

      Great to hear that you’re having so much fun! I should probably start keeping my tripod in the car too. Ha! I just have to get over my embarrassment about people watching me. Thanks!

    Cute outfits! I love them! I feel bad– I’ve been working tons this month, so I’ve only been doing cell phone pics, usually in the bathroom at work! But I love seeing your gorgeous photos!

      Thanks! Don’t feel bad! You gotta do what you gotta do. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s fun to see all your me-mades. I just happened to get home and take pics in the evenings around the time that there was perfect light outside.

      Thank you! Yeah, that fabric made me squeal when I saw it in the thrift store. Ha! I’m happy I’m building up a collection of basic shirts, so I can get rid of all my old and worn ones.
