Week two of Me-Made-May is over, and I exceeded my ‘3 garment a work-week’ challenge — I wore me mades to work every day last week!
Tuesday was another dreary day, so I wore a hand knit scarf with a RTW corduroy jacket. This will likely be the last time I get to wear the jacket until fall, it’s too thick for warmer weather.
I was running late Wednesday morning, so here I am right before I rushed off to work with tailoring class supplies in tow. I wore a hand knit sweater with one of my favorite RTW dresses. (The sweater is pre-blog. I knit it with lace weight yarn –eep! I like the finer gauge, but it took a long time to finish.)
Thursday I wore my Mad Men Challenge dress. Not sure about this cardigan with it. I really need to find a few new cardigans.
Friday I wore my gray Licorice Dress.
This week’s Friday theme was to take a picture in your sewing/knitting/creative space. This is my sewing room. I love it and spend so much time in here! It’s set up for functionality. From my chair, almost everything I use/need is within a swivel. Even the computer is close by. It’s out of frame, to the right of the bookcase.
Then after work, I changed into some me made pjs, and did a little knitting in my other creative space: the armchair in the living room. (I’m working on my Audrey in Unst cardigan, which is getting close to being done. It’s about time, I only started this like last year ago!)
Again, I didn’t wear anything me made this weekend. What this year’s challenge has taught me is that I need to start sewing knits and make a few comfy casual things. I did make two new tops (details later) and worked on the tailored jacket. Here’s how it pretty much looks right now:
How is Me-Made-May going for you, if you are participating?
