Me-Made-May: Days 14, 15 & 16

Friday (AKA Day 14) couldn't have come a moment too soon:

Me-made ruffle front jumper, ikea fabric skirt, vest, pants and coat. I don't know why, but morale was low last week. Anyway, this type of outfit feels the closest thing I have to a uniform. My mum told me ages ago that when I was little (like, toddler little) she used to almost always dress me by this formular: a pinafore dress that was basically a vest with skirt attached, a jumper over the top and wooly tights. Exchange the wooly tights for opaque, and make the skirt and vest separate items and you've basically got my outfit here. I guess it's no coincidence then that these kinds of jumper/skirt/tights combos are, what the yanks might call, my 'go-to' outfits!

Day 15:
Me-made tunic top, jeggings, pants and jacket. I was feeling pretty jazzy what with it being Saturday, getting my fringe cut (finally. Yay! Vision!) and heading to a BBQ.

Day 16:

Me-made blouse, sailor trousers, vest and pants. Because we were a good boy and girl and got all our writing tasks complete (him: two blogs posts and an article for a book on street art, me: one blog post, research for another and an article for Mixtape zine and a blog post) we decided to go for a wee drinkie. Whilst waiting an age for him to come out of the shower, I started to do my makeup in preparation. Because he took so long, I ended up with quite a done-up look which looked out of place with my casual outfit, so I had to get changed to balance things out!:

Me-made Jenny skirt, stripey T-shirt, vest (what? I was cold) pants and leopard coat. And the (very clean) boy wore the shirt I made him. Kind of like a Me-Made accessory:

What?! You think I was just playing dress-up and didn't actually go anywhere?! How DARE you!:

Alright? Believe me now? Oh, and Matty came out to play too. I would like to take this opportunity to officially apologise for calling Matty an 'attention-seeking goon' in the comments section of a previous post in which he featured. How can I make it up to him? By affording him some more attention!:

Great going-out outfit! Love the stripes 'n' pencil skirt with the red tights. And a Me-Made shirt for your guy, how excellent! That's taking the challenge to a whole new level :)

Would like you to know that all of you Me Made Mayers have inspired me to begin sewing clothing again! THANK YOU! I made a tank today that fits like a glove. Will try to get into to my blog line up next week sometime. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Love the outfits! Makes me kinda sad that I fell off the me-made-may boat. Although, it is making me sew much more than I normally would so it hasn't gone totally to waste!

Gail said...

Keep up the good work. Love your striped tshirt. I made an identical one recently so we must both have exceptional taste!

Loving those stripes...even though I can't do them myself (just handed on a striped top to my sister, so at least someone benefits from my aversion to them)
liking that I can finally tell which of your guys is which :)

I like that Ikea skirt. Who cares if you have a 'go to' outfit when it looks that fab?

Stacy said...

Great outfits of course and your make-up looks fabulous!

Every time I see that tunic I keep thinking of the pattern I have languishing in a drawer. I think this might be the weekend... Love the stripey top too x
