Tessuti Gridlock Competition Dress
Today we had a family barbecue and the sun was out in the morning so I decided to crack out my tessuti competition dress for it's first wear of the month. Unfortunately the rain came in the afternoon so I did end up being a little chilly.
Red Lace Dress
On Sunday we had my work friends engagement party so I took my red lace dress for another spin. I tried to keep it a bit more casual then my first wear. I really love this dress! I think it would have to be one of my favourite makes to date.
Tie Waist Shorts
Monday was a hang around home day so it was comfy and casual all the way. These tie waist shorts are so comfortable! I think I need to give the longer version of this pattern a go for winter. I find it hard though to find a pattern for longer print pants that doesn't make you look like your wearing pyjamas.
Quick & Easy Kimono Jacket
I think every woman needs a kimono jacket in their wardobe. They are the easiest way to dress up a simple jeans & singlet combo. And they are a cinch to make! I can see a few more of these entering my wardrobe in the future.
Lemon Gathered Skirt
My lemon gathered skirt made its second appearance of the month this week. I really love this skirt! I bought this fabric on a whim off the sale table ($5/metre) and I am so glad I grabbed it. I love wearing colour in winter and this outfit certainly brightened up a rainy day.
Vintage Ladies Dress
My second goal for Me Made May was to sew three of the projects that I had cut out on my sewing desk. I finished the third with one day to spare. I literally sat in my pyjamas all day until I finished so I could wear my new dress. I am so happy with how it turned out! I just blogged it this morning so if you missed it be sure to pop over here for a better look.
Sew Weekly Buttons Dress
I have been trying to wear this dress all month but given that it is strapless it hasn't really been weather appropriate. I totally forgot that I owned this cardigan though that is the perfect colour match. Luckily I discovered it while doing some searching this morning so I finally got to wear the dress. It only took me all month!
I have really enjoyed Me Made May this year and I have learned a lot about my sewing but I'll be back on Monday with a bit of a recap so stay tuned for that.
