Me-Made-May 2012 second week recap

MMM is such a great challenge, I wish we had Me-Made-Year^^! So let's have a look at last week's outfits:
- on the 09th I wore my dark denim Fait Main shorts and took a pic of my everyday me-made bag, a simple tote (self drafted) made out of a linen remnant with cotton webbing for handles. I love this style and I have the same design but 4 times bigger for when I go on holiday :)

- on the 10th I wore a shirred Burda top in mustard cotton veil with purchased leggings and me-made white daisy earrings and my Female navy caban at night -such an easy pattern, it was one of the first things I made successfully when I started sewing seriously again in 2008!

- on the 11th I wore another Burda top made with Japanese kitty fabric

- on the 12th I wore a Burda dress that I tampered with and ended wearable, the navy fabric is a remnant from my Ceylon dress and the belt part is quilting cotton from a New Look top

- on the 13th I wore my latest project, McCalls6503, I made view B, cut a size 12 and had to remove 1.5cm vertically at the shoulders to make the bodice less blousy. To make up for that I should have widened the belt parts by 1cm because the dress is slightly high waisted as a result. It's a very cute design and I totally want to try view D in black polka dots. Since I had no idea it was for stretch knits I used cotton lawn, another gift from my boyfriend, with tiny flowers and it makes the dress look quite retro, almost forty-ish IMO. I put a side zipper as usual and I can get in and out of the dress without any problems.

- on the 14th I wore my first Hem-isphere top, it was a gloomy day and I needed a little cheer-up so I chose one of my favourite garments :)

- on the 15th I wore my denim Burda shorts with a Female top that was a catastrophe at first -very ill fit, strange effect overall- but that I managed to salvage more or less, the fabric is Japanese double gauze with kittens and flowers and I really like the fun sleeves ruffles!

As for my mum she wore a variation of her favourite Fait Main dress, this time with slightly extended sleeves and back buttons:

And she wore a Japanese pattern skirt with front pleats and elasticized waist:

See you soon, have a great week!
