Week 2 of Me Made May is in the books! This week required a little extra preparation because I went to a wedding over the weekend, and made my first-ever floor-length dress. You’re getting a little sneak peek here of a major project.
Day 8: Running errands and working from home in my all-time favorite Go Anywhere Dress, cropped Jenna cardigan, and floral circle scarf
Day 9: On campus in my first ever Archer shirt, dusty rose Julia cardigan, and non-stretch Ginger jeans. Apparently this look isn’t as cute as I thought it was…
Day 10: On campus in my floral McCall’s 6891 shirt dress and cropped Jenna cardigan
Day 11: Cocktail party in my black and white polka dotted Butterick 6582 with my teal Anise jacket (unpictured)
Day 12: Friends’ wedding in a yet-to-be-blogged dress made from Burda 6994. Post coming up next!
Day 13: Visiting my mom in my flannel Sewaholic Granville, Kelly Anorak raincoat, and non-stretch Ginger jeans
Day 14: Mother’s day and back to reality in my Canadian tuxedo: Denim Sewaholic Granville and non-stretch Ginger jeans
Overall, Me Made May is going pretty smoothly. I’ve really been embracing jeans and button-downs lately. The only exceptions I made to my me-made-only pledge this week were athletic socks, an athletic swimsuit, a backless bra, and shawls to wear to the wedding and cocktail party.
