This outfit was a repeat...I wore it back at the beginning of May, but I needed something comfy to wear. I had worked two overnights in a row and slept for a good part of the day, so this dress was perfect.
Here is one of my newest creations! It is the Torii Tunic from Kay Whitt of Serendipity Studio. I have made many of her patterns and she is still one of my very favorite designers. This particular pattern is one of her older ones that I received for my birthday right after I was getting interested in sewing clothing. That was about four or five years ago and I just now made it for the first time! I actually planned on using the fabric for a different dress, but there was just enough to make the Torri Tunic, so it was all meant to be!
It's already the end of week 3 for Me Made May! It was another successful week for me although some days were really hard to put outfits together. I did get some sewing done this week and plan on blogging some of my projects as soon as I can get some pictures. I wore a lot of knit clothing this week - it is my favorite to wear because it is so comfortable!
I really love this outfit and it is one I would not have worn if I wasn't participating in MMM! I made the skirt about 3 years ago when I first got into sewing clothing, but I have only worn it once or twice. Part of the problem is I don't have very many tops that go with it and it is cotton, so it's not a great choice for MN winters. I will be wearing it more this summer now that I know I actually like wearing it!
Me-Made-May '14 has gotten off to a great start! I plan to do weekly round up posts of my outfits and I thought Saturday would be a good day to do these. It's my first year participating and I'm really enjoying it so far! Even though I wear a lot of me-made clothing already it has been interesting to plan my outfits each day because my pledge was to wear only me-made items all month long. So far it has been going well but it is only the third day!
I'm also hoping that I will wear some of my me-made items that just sit in my closet and never get worn. Then I will be able to see if I should really keep holding on to them or not.
