Me-Made-March, week 3
Only 2 more weeks to go! Of course March had to be a 5-week month rather than 4. Only kidding, I’m really enjoying the challenge, and it is a lot easier now that the sun is out! It’s been really helpful with all the support and comments from you guys, I love it!
On to the ensembles!
Day 14 – Monday
Rainy yucky day, the kind of day that can only be made better by wellies and cozy socks!
Jumper – hand knit, ‘Leaf Pullover’ by Bernat Design Studio
Shorts – Old Navy
Socks – hand knit, ‘Coming Together Socks’ by Thayer Preece
Wellies – by Seasalt of Cornwall – I LOVE them!
Necklace – Refashion (?) just strung gold vintage buttons onto a chain
Day 15 – Tuesday
Trousers – refashion from Gap, they were long, wide and flared and I made them narrow, straight and cropped
Blouse – Macy’s, bought on a mother-daughter shopping trip!
Waistcoat/Vest – hand knit, improvised pattern
…and yes, I am wearing the button necklace again!
Day 16 – Wednesday
Not my favourite overall outfit, it looked much better in my head first, but oh well.
Skirt – Refashion from low A-line to high and shorter
Flannel Shirt – Gap
Necklace – hand knit, pattern is ‘Cable Braided Necklace’ by Olga Buraya-Kefelian (its free, check it out!)
Day 17 – Thursday
Day 18 – Friday
…I had just gotten my hair cut to look more like Karen Gillan, the new Doctor Who companion (side note, in case you didn’t know, Teo & I are nerds for Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and just added to the list, BattleStar Galactica), so I felt like channelling her today.
Btw, getting your hair cut by a 2nd year student here at the college’s salon for 6 quid is awesome! Right, I know I don’t look anything like that ginger fox, but it was fun to pretend!
Wool Shorts – Hand sewn, simplicity 3850
Blouse – Talbots, from another mother-daughter shopping trip!
Jewelry – refashioned from dollhouse teasets and vintage buttons
Shoes – John Lewis ‘training heels’ — I’m trying to train my feet for high heels this year so I got these shoes to give it a go, they were pretty comfortable!
Day 19 – Saturday
Dress – hand sewn, self-drafted
Cardigan – hand knit, pattern is ‘Aidez’ by Cirilia Rose
Had a lovely day off with Teo, we went to a few gift shops and then got some great steak for dinner later. Yum!
Day 20 – Sunday
Dress – hand sewn, vintage vogue sewing pattern, completely reversible (see Day 10 for the other view)
Cardigan – hand knit, ‘Audrey in Unst’ by Gudrun Johnston
Necklace – gold buttons on a chain (AGAIN!)
Well that’s me for week three! Sun is out but I must focus on school work now…
