My Me made May week 1

Well so far I have blogged up to day 5, so here is the rest of the week:

MeMadeMay day 6On Day 6 I had work so I am wearing my Thurlow’s again, this time I have teamed them up with a black jersey Belcarra blouse, I can’t stress enough how much I love the Sewaholic Belcarra blouse pattern, I have made 4 already! It’s sooooo quick and easy to make!

Me made May day 7And here it is again! Another Belcarra blouse, this one is very versatile as it is white so I can wear it with anything, although it is a bit see through so I am wearing a cami top underneath! (A Colette Cinnamon, only available as a download from their website). The skirt is a Sew Serendipity Six Panel skirt from the book called ‘Sew Serendipity’.

 

MeMadeMay day 8I thought it would be good to show the back of my Sewaholic Thurlow trousers, look at those fab pockets! Actually I made a mistake and put them on upside down and rather than unpick them I just cut them off and made ‘fake’ pockets!! The top is a Sewaholic Renfrew, I am really enjoying sewing with knits at the moment and this stripey jersey is gorgeous.

MeMadeMay day 9The theme for Friday was blue, so I wore one of my other Belcarra blouses, the gorgeous gingham one, with my Colette Beignet skirt, notice the lovely vintage style buttons on my skirt.

I am really enjoying Me made May, I think I need to make a few more outfits this weekend!

Me Made May days 4 & 5

Yesterday was a beautiful day, I sat in the garden for most of it, I wore a lovely new Sewaholic Renfrew top that I had spent most of Saturday morning making, I used some of the gorgeous new Jersey fabric that we have on the website at the moment, I am so pleased with the way it turned out, I think I will make a stripey one next. Mr LLM couldn’t resist photo-shopping me into what looks like a scene from frozen! (In my flip-flops!)

MeMadeMay day 4The skirt is another Amy Butler Barcelona that I blogged about a few weeks ago, its made from one of my favourite fabrics by Anna Marie Horner called Raindrops.

Today I have been to work, so its a bit black and white as that is what I am required to wear. Another couple of Sewaholic patterns, this time the Thurlow trousers, which are so comfortable! The pattern is really easy to follow and for the tricky bits (like the back pockets) there are really useful pictures to follow on the Sewaholic blog, what I really like about them is the way they are constructed to fit so well! If this warm weather keeps up I shall definitely be making some Thurlow shorts!

Me Made May day 5The top is also by Sewaholic, its the new Belcarra blouse, it is selling so well that we ran out of them today! but don’t worry new stock will be with us shortly! The fabric for the blouse is an embroidered and embellished white cotton lawn, it has flowers and tiny sequins on it. I am also wearing a Me Made necklace, a scrabble letter T on a chain!
