Me-Made-May 2013 - Week 2

THURSDAY
BlouseDatura blouse by Deer and Doe (originally blogged here)
Cardigan: Zara (old)
Jeans: second hand
Shoes: Converse

I was a bit under the weather the first half of the week, so taking pictures of myself was the last thing I wanted.
I still wasn't 100% on Thursday, so my Datura blouse was the perfect compromise of style and comfort.
I really need to make the bust darts shorter if I make this blouse again, because they look like nipples right now. I wasn't very noticeable on a print, but it bothers me a bit in this chambray version. 

FRIDAY
Shirt: Pimkie
Skirt: Beignet skirt by Colette Patterns (first seen here)
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Pimkie

I can't believe this skirt already has almost three years. It's still one of my most worn makes, and I get to wear it all year round. It also appeared in last year's me-made-may.
Everyone raves about this pattern, and it's totally deserved.

SATURDAY
T-Shirt: Pimkie
Skirt: Kelly skirt by Megan Nielsen (originally blogged here)
Flats: Les Lolitas

This isn't exactly the most exciting outfit ever, but it was one of those days when I spend too much time getting ready on hair and makeup and then I end up having less than 5 minutes to get dressed. I didn't even have the time to put on a necklace.
Anyways, I told you multiple times how much I love the Kelly skirt, so I won't spend any more time on that. Although I'll say that I definitely prefer this skirt in a stiffer material (such as my black version), rather than this denim, that has a bit more drape to it.


SUNDAY
Dress: Lily dress by Colette Patterns (originally blogged here)
Cardigan: local market
Shoes: Pimkie

Oh, this dress. I love it so much... in theory. The colors are a bit too bold for my everyday life, and the material wrinkles so terribly (you can see it in the photos) that it gets worn very rarely. I also think the styling of these photos is not the most inspired choice: this dress begs for sandals and a more relaxed hairstyle.
However, I was surprised at how comfortable it actually is: I was afraid that this kind of skirt was going to be a bit too tight for everyday, but it's actually not at all. The kickpleat really makes your life easier. I really hope to make another version of Lily in a better material sooner than later.

So, I didn't make up for last week's fail, but I still kept up with my pledge of 4 me-made outfits. I can't believe we're almost at half!

  1. I love your Lily dress on you! It inspired me to buy the pattern and make my own. Haven't done that yet, but I will. Anyway, I think you look fabulous, and I can't wait to see what your next version looks like.

  8. Meditation but music are two inseparable components.
    Instead, this was a easy brand of melodies for
    a duration of security and confidence.

    I think all your outfits are really cute.

    I didn't get to "participate" in Me-Made-May, since I first found out about it in the beginning of May, but I'll definitely pledge next year!
    But I do wear home made stuff almost everyday - so I can play pretend this year ;)

  14. In case if fancy dining is not in the budget, there are two other cafes around the block.
    The surface finishes are not considering that good as
    stereolithography.

  16. It is to spot formidable chemicals used products.

    You don't need to consume top level pills that will surely have some side effects on you.

  18. Merci, Clotilde! Le météo est tellement different de jour en jour qu'on passe d'une saison à l'autre en quelques heures...

  19. Thank you! That is a staple pattern for any seamstress, IMHO.

  20. That's great practice! I do too, for me one of challenges is taking photos of myself, both time-wise and because I don't like being in front of the camera too often.

  21. It does sound like I'm a bit strict, does it? :D It's just very easy to find room for improvement when you get to analyze a photo of your outfit. You learn a lot of stuff!

  22. Thank you!
    Do it! You won't regret it. :)

  24. Thanks, Kessem! These glasses were a bit of an impulse purchase, but I don't regret it one second!

  26. I am in love with your Kelly skirt and the colour of your Beignet. Perfect outfit combinations :)

  27. haha, I know the feeling concerning being in front of the camera. I have to do it though, because I seem to be too eager to share my things, rather than wait for a proper model... and I also like to wear the clothes I design myself... but I still don't really like the camera, hehe...
