We made it through the month! Well....I kind of did. I skipped taking any photos the last weekend of the month. Did I cheat? Well, yes, kind of...pretty much. I wore a ready-to-wear jumpsuit. But, in my defense, it is really old - as most of my RTW clothes are - and I did add some very thin straps to it. I also wore me-made, self-drafted underpants one of those days, but I couldn't think of a tasteful way to get that photo in there. All that, combined with selfie-fatigue, led me to decide that it would be just fine to take the weekend off.
You'll also notice that there are a number of repeats. Considering I live on a tropical island, it's a rare occasion that my shirts are clean enough to wear a second time before washing. It's been on the cooler side lately though, so I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to not add to the laundry pile.
Here's what I wore in week 4 + my special MMM18 hopeful at the end:
(From left to right, top to bottom)
top: self-drafted t-shirt in organic cotton knit fabric from Sew Natural
bottom: self-drafted underpants in the same fabric
top: self-drafted racerback tank top with ribbed organic stretch knit from Nosh Organics
bottom: up-cycled jean shorts using my own tutorial
top: self-drafted oval t-shirt with organic jersey from Nosh Organics (different color)
bottom: self-drafted underpants in the same fabric & up-cycled jean shorts using my own tutorial
dress: a freshly up-cycled maxi-skirt-turned-strapless-dress! Tutorial coming soon!
dress: the very same dress as day 25! Then, to go out to dinner that evening, I added a classic white button-up that I've had for over a decade.
top: self-drafted boat-neck envelope-shoulder sleeveless top (pattern coming soon!) in organic loop-back sweatshirting by Nosh Organics
bottom: thrifted baggy jeans and a no-sew scrap leather belt
whole outfit: the EXACT SAME as day 27
days 29 & 30
took the weekend off from Me Made May
finishing off the month of Me-Mades with my own patterns!
top: ballet top DELPY in Nani Iro double gauze
And to close off the month, my sweet little daughter would like to proudly present her very first sewing project! Well done, Loula!
