Me Made May is halfway over, and I'm really enjoying it since I actually have enough me-mades to make it fun this year. This year I wore quite a few things that I don't like that much. I haven't made any decisions to let anything go, but I think that is coming.
Day 8: I wore my pull-on Ginger jeans and a RTW long tee. I thought about forcing my two-items-a-day rule but I really just wanted to wear a longer shirt and I don't have any that I've made. On this day, I made a mental note to sew a few longer tops.
Day 9: Same skinny Ginger jeans, a Plantain/Renfrew mash-up tee and a Blackwood cardigan. This outfit is just "meh." I made the tee out of a remnant bin find that had been sitting in my stash, but it just doesn't really go with anything in my closet.
Day 10: I actually wore two outfits on this day because it was 50 degrees when I left the house and 70 in the afternoon. This is the second outfit - my mustard linen/rayon Simplicity 1887 and a Kirsten Kimono Tee.
Day 11 was a rainy, rainy day during which we had an outdoor field trip. I started the day off wearing some Ginger jeans but they got soaked so I changed into RTW jeans. The top is a Sewaholic Renfrew that I don't wear that much because I forgot to stabilize the shoulder seams, and they stretch out. I think sewing some elastic to the seam allowance would fix it, but I haven't done it yet.
Day 12: It was overcast and chilly. I was looking for another cowl-neck Renfrew that I made last fall, but which seems to have been lost in the move. As I couldn't find it, I wore this Traveler shirt hack with my skinny Gingers. Though this top fits well and is comfortable, I don't wear it often. The print was one of those "love it to look at but not to wear" purchases.
Day 13: I wore my newest ponte pencil skirt along with a hacked Kirsten Kimono tee that I made for my 20-year high school reunion and never blogged. The shoulders aren't stabilized on this one either, mostly because I wasn't sure how to do it since the shoulder and sleeve are one long seam. The neckline stretches out with wear and shows my bra strap, so although I love how the top looks when I put it on, I never wear it for an entire day. I wonder whether sewing clear elastic to the shoulder seam for five or six inches would do the trick?
Day 14: I let N pick out my outfit today (I gave her two choices). She chose my new Kirsten Kimono t-shirt dress (not yet blogged) and my striped Blackwood cardigan. I got a lot of compliments on the dress today, which is kind of funny because without the cardigan and belt it is totally a sack. But the color is nice.
