So here we are – and my goodness are there some shockers!
I think I’m going to have to present the pictures and then the lessons learned… Oh dear.
I love this picture – I’ll have to take more outside when the weather is nice. 🙂
Miette Skirt; Thrifted red light jumper.
I love this dress so much! Yet to blog it though and this is the most terrible picture my boyfriend has yet taken. Sadly, I was a bit embarrassed, so did the old “One’s enough, I’m sure it’s fine”. No, it is most definitely not fine. Love the dress, the jumper doesn’t match. At all. But I was really cold.
My blue Mad Men dress and the jumper.
This dress is a bit “meh”. It was the first thing I made that I was really happy with – but it still isn’t really my style.
Key difference – better weather makes shapeless black jumper unnecessary.
I forgot to include refashioned items in my Me Made pledge, so I guess this doesn’t really count. But I love it anyway.
This dress had a repulsive neck frill when I bought it and also some danglies that hung down from the neck. But now they have been vanquished, I really love it. The leather boots are an op shop find – my size, real leather, completely lovely, $25. Happiness!
This is one of my favourites for the 11 days – I like how the blouse looks with the skirt. Sadly, I spend most of the day wearing the same big black jumper – I took it off for the picture and froze.
One: The main thing I’ve learnt with Me Made May this month is that I have no jumpers that look any good with any of my me-made clothes. I don’t think me-made will change this – I just need to go op-shopping, I reckon. I’d love to be one of those people that just knits up a jumper in a fortnight, but really, 2 years is closer to the mark.
I think if it were Me Made February/March, I’d be faring a lot better.
It’s a problem with living somewhere so warm – it never seems worth buying winter clothes, because I don’t wear them enough. And then winter comes and it’s cold and it becomes a choice between looking good and being cold and being warm and looking stupid.
Two: Part of my challenge here was the photography side – and while there are a couple of pictures in here I’m happy with, the majority suck. So, need to work on that!
