Me Made May: Wrap-Up
I made it to June! I can't begin to tell you how amazing it felt to throw on a pair of jeans and a tee on Saturday morning. I missed having the option over the course of the past month. The lack of pants/shirts in my Me-Made clothing was glaring. I have a little bit of catch-up to do, since I skipped a post last Sunday. Here's a run-down of the last two weeks.
This bird skirt is an oldie. It was blogged at some point, but I'm unable to track it down.
The weather threw a lot of curve balls throughout the course of the month. We spanned the scope of the thermometer. This particular day, I BOILED wearing this silk skirt.
And, the very next day, I needed to call upon my Grace cardigan to keep me comfortable while I rocked my slither blouse.
The weather stayed cool for several days. I felt lucyk to have so many great sweaters to turn to. I wore my Serina cardigan...
...on 'Theme Friday' (hometown), I wore my February Fitted Pullover...
...the following afternoon, I wore my White Pines cardigan.
As the month went on, it became increasingly my mission to wear as few repeated outfits as possible, so I dug deep. I pulled out and wore this June Bug dress with my April Showers cardigan.
Monday, we enjoyed a lazy day off work, and I wore my Kalajoki socks while I puttered around the house.
Surprise, surprise, I wore my Grace cardigan AGAIN. If I had a dozen sock weight black cardigans, I would wear them all, tirelessly.
Then, our weather started to behave itself,and I was able to wear this dress. I pulled this one from the back of my closet. I never blogged this. I'd almost forgotten about it. But, now that I've revisited it, I can't wait to try making it again. The pattern is an 80's Vogue pattern: 7891.
I didn't get a photo on the 30th, but I did wear this pullover; in fact, I wore almost exacltly what I'm wearing in those photos taken two years ago... imaginative. I ended the month in New York (more on that soon!) with a new outfit (more on that soon too!). This month has been really enlightening. I've learned a lot. It's been really interesting to evaluate the things I'm sewing vs. the things I'm accostomed to wearing. I have a lot of ideas (pants/blouses) for upcoming projects. Thanks so much to 'So Zo' for hosting this challenge! I'm so thrilled I made it through the month. It's been a lot of fun!
I am so, so impressed that you made it through the month! Congrats! My queue has grown a bit reading through your posts - I have to knit a Grace cardigan and a February Lady Sweater! Did you steek your pullover? The sweater you linked is a pullover, but the picture here is a cardigan. If so, consider me doubly impressed!!

My fav is the one that you never blogged about. That is so beautiful on you!
Congratulations!! You made it through the month and you were very well-dressed each day! I love the Serina cardigan - the color is beautiful. I pointed out your blog to a couple of friends from my LYS this past weekend and they "ooohed" and "aaahed" over your wardrobe too! :o)
