Final installment of Me-Made-March 2011
Well, I can’t believe I did it! And with only minimal cheating (that is, to count jewellery as handmade items)! Me-Made-March is over, and it was amazing, difficult, and fun! Here are the final outfits:
Day 28 – Monday
Another date with caustic devore so I dressed ‘messy!’
Cardigan – hand knit, ‘Audrey in Unst’ by Gudrun Johnston
Blouse – thrifted, orig. from H&M
Trousers – refashion from wide, long and flared to cropped and skinny
Day 29 – Tuesday
I stayed home to work and take care of a sick husband (he’s better now!) but since I didn’t want to work in pajamas, I channelled Donna Reed and dressed as the loving housewife that I was 😉 I even curled my hair but not sure why…
Blouse – forget where I got it!
Skirt – hand sewn, elastic waist skirt, tutorial found at Freshly Picked blog
Necklace – hand knit, ‘Cable-Braided Necklace’ by Olga Buraya-Kefelian
Day 30 – Wednesday
Today is dedicated to Indigo Orchid who asked on Day 25 if we’d get to see more of the dress that I was wearing underneath that grey jumper. YES! Here you go!
Dress – hand sewn, self drafted button-tab shift
blouse – gap
blazer – Talbots
Socks – hand knit, ‘lakeside’ by Julia Vaconsin
Day 31 – Thursday, the FINAL day!
Not necessarily an outfit to go out with a bang in, but it was raining so I dressed appropriately.
Shorts – Hand sewn, simplicity 3850
Wasitcoat/Vest – hand knit, improvised without a patttern
blouse – thrifted
Today is just a quick post, but I will have a wrap-up and final reflection on the month’s experience coming later. Hope you enjoyed the month!
