Me Made May catch-up: Week 2

Eep where has the time gone! We're into the final week of Me Made May 2013 and I have been TERRIBLE about keeping up with blogging about my outfits each week - opsie! I do apologise. However, I have been photographing my outfits and keeping a bit more up to date with posting them in the official Me Made May 2013 Flickr group so all is not lost. My pledge was to wear me-made garments at least 3 times a week. Let's see what week 2 looked like...

Day 7

Sewaholic Pendrell blouse - I love the print on this top, but the puffed sleeves do make it a little bit tricky to wear underneath a cardigan so it's best saved for warm days. Also, because my fabric is fairly stiff, they do stick out quite a bit so I sometimes feel a bit costumey in this top. Saying that, I do love it and I really like how it looks with these trousers and is nice and smart for a day at work.
Day 10

I managed to get to Day 10 before my first repeat - here again is the first skirt I made, the Sewaholic Crescent skirt. Apologies for the slightly unfocused picture, I have no idea what happened! I love this skirt. It is perfect for work on any day but, as here, I often find myself wearing it on casual Friday. Does anyone else hate "casual Friday" or is it just me?! I find it more of an effort to decide what to wear on these days than on any others. It is most confusing.
Day 11

Onto my third Sewaholic pattern of the week - my second Renfrew top. I have not blogged about this before as it was pretty much the same as the first! This is sewn in very thin (and very cheap) jersey which doesn't do it many favours but I do like the colour and print and it works ok with a top underneath. This day I was flying up to Glasgow so it made a nice and comfy plane outfit.

Day 12

Day 12 does not count at all towards my Me Made May campaign - it was the day of the Glasgow Women's 10k so I spent most of the day in my running gear. Here I am just after crossing the finish line looking rather soggy as it was a very wet and windy day! The weather obvious worked in my favour though because I ran my fastest time yet despite the Glasgow hills!

That brings us to the end of week 2...week 3 coming soon! Are you taking part in Me Made May? Are you managing to keep up with your pledge - or even exceed it?

  1. I love your Pendrell top, what great fabric.

    1. Thanks Kerry! It's quite stiff, possibly quilting, cotton but I do think it looks alright as a Pendrell!

  2. Well done on the race! Ps I really love your Pendrell, it looks very chic.

  3. Well done for getting to day 10 before repeating a garment...hope you're enjoying your first Me Made May ;o) And massive congrats on the race!
