Day 11: Monday I wore my latest crinkle chiffon top, Simplicity 2365, from March.
Day 12: Tuesday I wore another chiffon top, OOP Butterick 5355, that I made so long ago I don’t remember when.
Day 13: Wednesday I wore my leopard/floral cardigan, OOP McCall’s 5978.
Day 14: Thursday I wore another chiffon top, McCall’s 5436. Somehow, I managed to wear 3 different chiffon tops this past week. I may have an obsession.
Day 15: Friday I wore my version of Simplicity 1317. This was a poor decision for the warm temps as it is so think. Definitely a fall top, not a summer top.
Day 16: Saturday I wore my McCall’s 6559 maxi. I really need to hem off about 10″ to make this shorter and fix the current shrinking lining issues at the hem.
Day 17: Sunday I wore the same Summer Concert Tee I wore the first day of this month because I have reluctantly spent the day cleaning instead of sewing and I am a mess. Nobody wants to see it! I am currently working on some pattern testing projects that I can’t wait to share but I had to set them aside for the day. My house has reached a critical point of messy and I have to take care of it now!
Now that we are over halfway through Me Made May 2015, I have once again noticed a few gaps in my wardrobe that I need to fill. As always, pants! I just need to make more/any. I consistently buy the same pair in the same two washes all the freaking time. Ugh…I am so bored with that. I successfully copied a pair of Express jeans out of red stretch denim for the Fabric Mart Fabricista challenge that I have never made again. Mostly because I just cannot seem to pull the trigger to buy denim, but also it is just easier to buy a new pair of jeans.
Another need is more casual stay at home tops. On days like today I want to throw on a loose top and capri leggings. I do not intend on leaving the house and, in fact, I am going to get my hands dirty by cleaning or doing lawn work or even just sewing all day. These days are all about comfort and not caring if I get a stain on my shirt. I definitely need to make some more super basic tees out of some of the stash fabrics that I am not so in love with just to get them out of there.
Have you noticed any gaps in your me made wardrobe so far?
